First announced in April 2022, Memeland came and made some undeniable noise in the NFT space. 9GAG, founded in 2008, has set out to make the world happier. With an astonishing social media presence, 9GAG, the creator, has crafted a global audience of 200 Million across its website, apps, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and TikTok.
9GAG is backed by partners like First Round Capital, Freestyle Capital, GreyCroft Partners, True Ventures, 500 Startups, and more! Memeland is 9GAG’S first NFT Collections and has to be one of the most hyped projects of 2022.
Memeland is not just a JPEG; it is a utility-packed PFP! Memeland is a collection of 9,999 NFTS residing on the Ethereum BlockChain.
Each Memeland PFP (called Captains) unlocks private club membership, exclusive access to creator NFT marketplaces, IRL events, upcoming 9GAG drops and projects/collections, and much more!
Memes inspire the project, and as you probably know, the heartfelt speech by Kevin Durant while accepting his NBA Most Valuable Player (MVP) Award in May 2014, “You the real MVP,” has been a popular meme ever since that day. So the team decided to use the line and launch a standalone NFT before the Memeland launch named “YOU THE REAL MVP.”
You the Real MVP
“YOU THE REAL MVP” is a premium membership. Its utilities are 2x Memeland FREE mints, Allowlist for all future 9GAG/Memeland NFT collections, MVP role/MVP lounge in the discord, and much more to come! At the moment of writing, this NFT is currently holding a floor price of 23 ETH! There are now only 420 “YOU THE REAL MVP” NFTS.
POTATOZ by Memeland
A free mint + gas drop by Memeland. This is NOT the main collection and is just a drop before the official Memeland NFT Launch. It is a collection of 9,999 POTATOZ, and they will be given out by the following: 6,900 spots to PREMINT raffle winners, “YOU THE REAL MVP” 2 spots for POTATOZ, and a few smaller raffles for 9GAG users, people who have memelist, “Memelords” in the discord and with other partners. You can only mint one per wallet, except for MVP.
POTATOZ is your entry ticket into the Memeland Ecosystem. The team hints at the POTATOZ being a great sidekick but could also be its own thing. They can also relate with Memelist, $MEME, MVP, and more. At the time of writing POTATOZ Premint raffle has ended, but there is currently a “Guess the Number” Premint going on. Users can try and guess the total number of entries (Before de-botting) in the public raffle.
HINTS: Over 69,000 but smaller than 276,000. There will be 100 “The POTATOZ” allowlist spots for 100 people with the closest guess! To enter for a chance at the raffle, you would have needed to follow instructions on Premint, including the following twitter, and having 0.069 in your wallet at the time of registration. Registration closed July 10, 2022, at 7 A.M PST.
“Meme is love, and Meme is life” every Memeland (Captain) will yield $MEME every day for years! $MEME is at the core of everything in the Memeland Memetaverse. It will be the center of how all is purchased, and holders will be able to accumulate it by staking there Captains. $MEME is essentially a token made to support the creator economy, and it also serves as Memeland’s governance token! You can earn $MEME through holding and staking or actively playing and creating content! As the project unfolds, more information will be revealed on the $MEME token.
The company has said little about the roadmap as they wish to under-promise and over-deliver! They mention there is no road at sea and no roadmap. There is a North Star, which is their mission. To empower creators by connecting web2 and web3 communities. More information on plans for Memeland can be found in discord as the project launches and progresses.

Holders of Memeland PFPs will have full commercial art rights for the Memeland PFP they own.
Memeland will receive 6.9% of all secondary sales, which will be used for more full-time team members, fund operations, and deliver more value to the holders and community! Full details are coming soon.
What is Memelord’s role?
Memelord role is given to genuine members who actively participate in the discord and community. Getting a Memelord role in the discord is not the same as getting on the “Memelist”; however, they do give some Memelord-only contests giving role holders a better chance at getting on the “Memelist.”
