On May 11, Milady (LADYS), the self-organized memecoin of the namesake anime avatar nonfungible tokens (NFT) collection, surged by over 5,250% within 24 hours to trade at a $0.0000001528 at the time of publication. The day prior, American business magnate Elon Musk tweeted a meme using the imagery of a Milady NFT, sending the average Ether (ETH) sale price of the collection soaring.
According to token developers, LADYS has “no association” with Milady creator Charlotte Fang or Milady Maker. The token “is simply paying homage to an NFT collection we all love and recognize.”
“$LADYS is a meme coin with no intrinsic value or expectation of financial return. There is no formal team or roadmap. The coin is completely useless and for entertainment purposes only.”
However, investors have found LADYS to encompass more than just meme value. At the time of publication, the total diluted market capitalization of the token surged past $140 million with a 24-hour trading volume of $230 million. According to the token’s website, the total supply of LADYS is 888 trillion. The website further explains:
“94% of the tokens were sent to the liquidity pool (LP). LP tokens were burnt, and the contract is renounced.”
Until earlier this week, the token was only available on the decentralized exchange Uniswap. The token has soared in popularity after multiple major cryptocurrency exchanges listed it on May 11. Some exchanges, such as Bybit, offered LADYS prize pools to incentivize deposits. Others, such as Bitget, seem to have remained true to LADYS’ meme nature in supporting its listing decision:
“LADYS is the tokenization of the fully memetically optimized white pill. LADYS is a self-organized meme coin. LADYS is the drip currency. LADYS are the points for karma, charm and beauty. LADYS is the accumulation of clout.”
Love is eternal. Love is unstoppable.$LADYS is nothing but the memetic vehicle where the infinite power of love converges with the boundless potential of tokenisation.
