Quotes from the episode:
“You probably shouldn't buy it. And then it was like a light bulb, 'Don't buy MEME'. That's a meme in itself, right. #DontbuyMEME.” [00:08:48]
“You can't stake more than five (pineapples) per wallet that was our intention...we didn't want the whales to just come in and mint up all the NFTs.” [00:17:44]
“In the next couple of weeks, we'll launch a campaign, a joint project with Decentraland, where you can lock up MEME tokens and MANA tokens.” [00:27:10]
