There’s a grain of truth to every joke, and crypto memes are a distilled form of the grain.
The first week of August may be a bit melancholic. Here comes the realisation of the fact that 2/3 of the summer is already over. In the same grain, it seems that cryptos are going to be in a lull for one more month, so we have enough time to prepare for the “fishing” season. In order to not be overrun by this melancholy, let’s check out the most relevant crypto memes and snap out of it.
