The post #Deletecoinbase Trends As Coinbase Calls Pepe a “Hate Symbol” appeared first on Coinpedia Fintech News
The “meme-coin of the moment,” according to Coinbase’s most recent email newsletter, emphasized the growing popularity of Pepe Coin (PEPE) and meme coin trading. The Anti-Defamation League noted in the conversation that Pepe the Frog, the inspiration for PEPE, has been adopted as a hate symbol by some alt-right organizations. Supporters of the PEPE meme coin sharply criticized this approach and requested that any bad references be taken down. As a result, individuals threatened to delete their Coinbase accounts, leading to the hashtag “#DELETECOINBASE” being popular on Twitter.
