MEMES ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IN THE WORLD
Memes are intersubjective myths (hat tip to Harari). Memes are how societies organize themselves across large groups.
Elections, politics, culture, brands, consumer behavior, cash-flows all come from the most powerful memes in society at any given point in time.
From “Just Do It” to “Digital Gold” to “Yes We Can” / “Make America Great Again,” those who control the best memes, control societal resources.
NFTs are meme-transport, ownership and financialization technology.
The medium is the message and changes in mediums change the message. This is a once-every-few-generations opportunity to make society better; to, if you will, SEIZE THE MEMES OF PRODUCTION!
THE MEMES COLLECTION
The Memes Collection is focused on the fight for the open metaverse (decentralization, community, self-sovereignty) and spreading this message. We want many people, many wallets spreading this message.
It is a collection that is meant to be open and accessible. Edition sizes will generally be large and inexpensive, to spread the word and to avoid gas wars. They might not sell out right away and that is fine, desirable, even. As usual, the 6529 Museum will be reserving 10% of each edition to archive, to display, to donate or to sell in the future.
Saving the world is a serious topic, but what is the point of life if you don’t have fun along the way? We hope to make some cool art, make lots of new frens and generally have a good time along the way.
The Memes collection will be ERC-1155 editions; there is no reason to impose high minting costs on a collection of this nature. The collection is minted on a standalone Manifold contract and the JPGs are saved on Arweave.
The artist for the initial cards is 6529er but the bulk of the collection’s pieces are collaborations with other great artists. If you are an artist and are interested in a collaboration on a meme card, please fill out this form.
