Crypto Whales Gather Around This Unlisted Meme Coin – Next 100x Project?

The newly launched Solana meme coin ICO for Sealana ($SEAL), themed as the all-American redneck seal, has swiftly attracted over $750,000 in investments within just two weeks.

Sealana is at the forefront of a new wave of meme coins that are helping the Solana network challenge Ethereum’s dominance as the go-to blockchain for viral meme coins.

Sealana comes off the back of wildly successful predecessors DogWifHat ($WIF), Bonk ($BONK), Book of Meme ($BOME) and Popcat ($POPCAT), all of which quickly rose to become top ten meme coins by market capitalization.

He also comes waddling in behind another recent viral Solana meme coin ICO – Slothana ($SLOTH).

Sealana’s 420-friendly chain-mate Slothana raised a staggering $15 million in a one-month presale that recently concluded.

Now it looks like $SEAL is Solana’s next viral lazy guy meme coin, but the project remains mysterious. There are hints that the team behind it may have been the architects of the infamous and wildly successful Slerf ($SLERF),

Crypto’s original sloth meme coin, Slerf, dropped earlier this year but the presale was marred when the team accidentally burned some $10 million in tokens allocated for ICO investors. After going on to see Slothana outraise Slerf, the team is allegedly back with their new offering, Sealana.

Although his original home was on Solana, $SEAL is technically a multichain token and anyone with SOL, ETH or BNB in their wallets can purchase it now at a fixed presale price of $0.022 per token.

But who exactly is Sealana?

Solana’s greatest bedroom patriot is Making Meme Coins Great Again.

Doesn’t Solana’s $SEAL Remind You of Someone?


Sealana’s main source of inspiration will be obvious to most who meet his cross-eyed screen gaze, but maybe they won’t connect the dots instantly. That’s because he’s a not-so-subtle Web3 spin on South Park’s viral legend Gamer Guy, aka Fat Computer Nerd.

Gamer Guy appeared in the hit cartoon’s side-splitting World of Warcraft episode and became a viral meme all on his own thanks to his milk-bottle glasses, screen-locked stare, messy room and gravity-defying girth.

He symbolizes virtually anyone with unhealthy screen time, from the legions of disgruntled keyboard warriors writing sharp, acerbic opinions in internet comments sections, to a kind of Everyman idler.

Beached at his desk and ballooning by the day, when he’s not making degen Solana trades, Sealana’s roving flippers fumble across his desk for sustenance of chips and tinned tuna.

Why does the hungry $SEAL love Solana so much? Because crypto’s second-most commercially important blockchain has established itself as the best Layer 1 blockchain to launch high-volume meme coins.

The market is hungry for more and Sealana feels a tingling in his blubber. His native network, Solana, could flip BNB to become the third-largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization.

Solana currently hosts a digital economy storing over $4.149 billion in total value locked (TVL) across various apps and financial services, with 1.16 million active users transacting daily and over 2,500 monthly active developers.

There are also some potentially market moving events ahead that could add billions to the Solana network across all its projects.

The Halving and ETF Effects


Recent disappointing crypto prices after some early-year rallies reflect a market that is briefly consolidating before the effects of a Bitcoin software update known as “the halving” become apparent. If analysts are right, then $SEAL and other Solana meme coins could attract some feverish speculation in the coming year.

That’s because the halving slashed mining rewards from 6.25 BTC per block to 3.125, effectively halving the issuance of new BTC.

Now, with Bitcoin setting new all-time highs this year after the US approval of spot Bitcoin investment products back in January, many analysts say crypto is set to become much more valuable, thanks to the bottlenecked new supply.

The past three halvings have added significant value to the market well within a year of the update.

Market-wide green candles will prompt further meme coin gold rushes in the near future. This time, Solana tokens will be at the forefront of the rallies.

The potential US approval of Ethereum ETFs on Thursday next week could also be a boon for meme coins like $SEAL on Solana, the number one “Ethereum-killer”.

Don’t ignore the patriotic call to Make Meme Coins Great Again. Who knows? Sealana will be thanking you when he leaves mom’s basement.
