In 2005, when Matt Fury introduced the Pepe frog to the world, he did not expect it to gain such virality across the web. At the time, he didn’t know what a meme was when he created the green frog that is now shared across the web.
More than ten years later, in 2016, the Pepe frog was a legend and the cryptocurrency was in transition to another climactic bull race. In October 2016, Bitcoin.com News reported the rare Pepe blockchain card that was introduced through the counterparty blockchain.
At the time, our Newsdesk noted that “Rare Peps is a picture of the infamous frog, which is traded on the Bitcoin (BTC) blockchain as an XCP asset, much like the spelling of a Genesis card.” Since then, the rare Pepe directory indicates that the team has created a total of 36 series featuring the Internet’s favorite green frog and many other characters.
Five years later, in 2021, older NFTs like Nilicoins, Rare Pepe and Curio Cards saw new demand. In fact, some rare pepe cards that are super-rare have sold for thousands of dollars. Opensia has old rare papaya cards and people are selling lord cake dust.
