Fantom (CRYPTO:FTM) founder Andre Cronje is considering integrating meme coins into the blockchain network, indicating a growing trend among Layer-1 networks.

Despite acknowledging challenges such as volatility and limited utility, Cronje aims to establish a framework for launching and safeguarding community-centric meme coins on Fantom.

This initiative comes amid a surge in interest in meme coins, with the sector's market capitalisation surpassing $56 billion.

Several blockchains, including Fantom, are incentivising meme coin developers to join their networks, reflecting the broader adoption of these assets in the crypto space.
