Its here. You’ve been waiting. I’ve been waiting. Marmot Coin. MRMT. Announced today in the CAT Q&A session hosted by Chia Network Marmot Coin is going to be the Chia meme coin to beat. But, like all good things, there is a catch. Marmot Coin is backed by real life Marmots, and in order to get one you need Proof of Marmot. So how can you do this?
Well, according to Marmot Coin founder Preston Byrne in a Twitter thread this afternoon there are three distinct mechanisms for acquiring this coveted meme coin.
a picture ofa live Marmot. This is actually pretty tough since they are an endangered, rare animal on Vancouver Island. DO NOT HARASS MARMOTS. This part is important.
- Donate a toy Marmot (or equivalent toy) to a Children’s charity and provide proof to the esteemed Marmot Coin foundation.
- Donate $100 or more to the Marmot Recovery Foundation.
I must stress that you should NOT harass Marmots, and you should instead leverage options 2 or 3 and donate to a worthy cause to exchange Proof of Marmot for Marmot Coin. I have reached out to Mr. Byrne to detail out the process of the exchange and will update this article when he clarifies, because right now I think people are just going to tweet stuff at him.
Edit: After discussion with Preston Byrne, I have clarified the Proof of Marmot issuance rules. He informed me that “We follow orders from the Marmot High Council, which sits atop the mountain on the marmot hole planet Marmota Prime.” meaning that issuance rules are governed by a higher power and cannot be detailed at any given time.
Edit 2: If you would like to submit Proof of Marmot Preston is asking you reply to this tweet with your Proof and the Marmot Ambassador will contact you via DM to complete.
