Duckereum is a fun and entertaining decentralized cryptocurrency created by Mark Duckerberg, Warren Duckett and M0THERducker, which builds on the foundations of Dogecoin. Duckerberg believes that the crypto world has become boring, repetitive, and that it's time to make it fun and exciting again. He wants good memes, and to pay them, he creates a fun and light currency, with no price or marketcap targets, and no incentives to "invest" that aren't financial advice (of course!), things we see routinely today. He talks to two crypto-friends: Warren, a veteran whose life was changed by bitcoin, and MD, a super IT mum who loves memes, and just like that, you're on a website that parodies Wikipedia with dark mode, where Duckerberg talks about himself in the third person as he writes all this with his own two hands feet.
The name comes from the irony of the Ethereum blockchain. The Ethereum network is an absolutely incredible technical and decentralized achievement, whose real added value compared to Bitcoin lies in the fact that anyone can create an application or a cryptocurrency on the network, thanks to smartcontracts. Vitalik, its creator, hoped to see initiatives that would serve humanity, but today his blockchain is mostly used by unscrupulous people who create tokens to scam naive beginners and steal their money, and to host jpegs that can be worth millions of dollars. And all this is unstoppable. Duckereum represents all this nonsense and make fun of it.
Every week, a meme contest is organized by the Duckereum team on the official twitter account. A theme is imposed, related to the news, and the winner receives some Duckereum known in advance:
- Meme contest #1 to #25: 25,000 Duckereum for the winner
- Meme contest #26 to #75: 15,000 Duckereum for the winner
- Meme contest #76 to #150: 10,000 Duckereum for the winner
- Meme contest #151 to #250: 5,000 Duckereum for the winner
The winner is chosen through a vote by the Duckereum DAO (Decentralized Autonomous Organization): all those who hold Duckereum can vote for their favourite meme.
Duckerberg didn't experience the early days of Dogecoin, and he would have loved to be able to read about the progress of the venture, week by week, as if someone had kept a diary telling it all. So that's what he'll do for Duckereum. In the completely insane scenario where a cryptocurrency with no purpose other than rewarding meme contests ends up seducing millions of people, we need to avoid the frustration of future generations who won't have been able to witness it all. Ah, and it will make the job of Netflix showrunners easier
To be part of the Duckereum adventure, simply join the community and enjoy the good atmosphere, the memes, the discussions (sometimes crazy, sometimes serious, but always enjoyable). Want to go further and own some Duckereum? No need to buy any, just participate in the meme contests organized every week on Twitter, and use your genius (or stupidity, sometimes it works even better) to make people laugh and bring them joy. If you are the winner, you will receive many Duckereum!
Oh, we see you! You still want to buy some, like investing with the hope of making a fortune like the first people who bought Doge, right? Ok, so, here's our advice to you: the crypto market is cruel, extremely volatile and full of wolves. You could lose your entire investment (or almost). On top of that, Duckereum is a currency that has no other purpose than to make crypto fun again, and we have no intention of making any effort to increase its dollar value. So, if you want to invest in Duckereum, be sure to do the following with your hard-earned money: first, pay all your bills, pay off your debts, make sure your family doesn't lack anything. If there is anything left over after that, please your loved ones with gifts. If there's anything left over after that, invest in some super revolutionary stuff that humanity needs, or make a donation to help people or animals in need. AND, finally, if there's anything left over after that, that you can spend without it making any difference to you, then it's ok, you can... hmmm, no. Learn to make good memes.
