Queen Elizabeth II died yesterday (September 8) aged 96, after wearing the British crown for 70 years and 214 days. The death of the longest-reigning monarch in UK history was mourned around the world, but it also attracted the cryptocurrency community.
Hours after the news, memecoins such as ‘Queen Elizabeth Inu’, ‘Queen Doge’, ‘God Save The Queen’, ‘London Bridge Is Down’, ‘Queen Grow’, ‘Rip Queen Elizabeth’, ‘Elizabeth II’ and ‘Queen Inu II” appeared in some decentralized blockchain ecosystems.
- Inventive participants in the field of cryptocurrencies have proven over the years that they can react rather unusually to any huge event that happens around the world. Shortly after Her Majesty’s death, over 40 Queen-themed memecoins on Ethereum and Binance’s BNB chain flooded the space.
- One of the hottest ones – “Queen Elizabeth Inu” – has increased by 11,400%, while the “God Save the Queen” token increased by 1,500% before its price started to fall in the last few hours.
- A collection of non-fungible tokens (NFT) called “Queen Elizabeth 69 Years NFT” also saw the light of day. It is worth mentioning, however, that its creators made a mistake since the monarch reigned for 70 years.
- Not everyone greeted the launch of memecoins with enthusiasm. The NFT enthusiast known as ThreadGuy on Twitter, he argued that anyone who tries to profit from the death of Queen Elizabeth deserves to go to hell. The merchant “Byzantine General” also disagreed, saying that interactions with such memecoins must cease.
- Queen Elizabeth II was Britain’s longest-reigning monarch. Over the decades, he was considered an institution in the United Kingdom and a figure who united the various nations of the region. During her reign, she preferred not to get heavily involved in political matters, which could be one reason why society generally favored her.
- The UK will have to make some major tweaks in the coming months, including changing the lyrics to its national anthem and replacing the Queen’s face on banknotes and coins. The new money portrait will be Charles III (Elizabeth II’s son), who will be crowned King.
