Base Meme Coins

Meme coins, a unique and often entertaining category of crypto coins, have been a hot topic recently. Within the meme coin category, the Base network has become a popular platform for these kinds of cryptocurrencies. So in this article, we discuss the Base network as a whole, and explore a few of the top meme coins thriving on the Base network.

Before We Get Started

Before we explore the top 5 meme coins on the Base network, it’s important to remember that you can use a secure crypto wallet, such as Trust Wallet, to manage Base meme coins, Ethereum (ETH) on Base, and other Layer 2 tokens.

Download Trust Wallet as a mobile app, or install the Trust Wallet Extension on your desktop browser.



Understanding the Base Network

The Base network is a Layer 2 network built on Ethereum by Coinbase. Coinbase is one of the world's largest crypto exchanges. The Base network offers a faster, cheaper way to interact with the Ethereum blockchain, all while benefiting from the security and trust of Coinbase.

Positioned as an Ethereum Layer 2 solution, Base operates on the Optimistic Ethereum (OP) Stack. This is a collaboration between Base and Optimism, and is incubated within Coinbase. Base offers a secure, cost-effective, and developer-friendly environment for decentralized applications (dApps). Base is no regular L2 network. Base is backed by the experience and resources of Coinbase. This gives developers access to a massive user base and powerful tools within the Coinbase ecosystem.

According to Coinbase’s official documentation, Base does not have a network token. There are currently no plans to issue a network token. Please be aware of any scammers claiming to offer airdrops or Base tokens of any kind, as you could lose your crypto. Ensure you have the latest version of Trust Wallet installed so that you can benefit from features like the Trust Wallet Security Scanner.
