Crypto exchange Coinbase sent emails to its users about Pepe Coin (PEPE) frenzy and meme coin trading reaching a two-year high. While Coinbase referred to Pepe the Frog meme-based PEPE token as “the memecoin of the moment,” it said, “Over time it has been co-opted as a hate symbol by alt-right groups, according to the Anti-Defamation League.”
After the Coinbase email newsletter, the crypto community, especially people supporting the PEPE meme coin criticized the crypto exchange for calling the most loveable meme on the internet a hate symbol. People asked Coinbase and CEO Brian Armstrong to apologize and remove the negative words about PEPE.
“#DELETECOINBASE” started to trend on Twitter as the community warns to delete their Coinbase accounts. Some even go on to compare the posts of Gemini and Coinbase. Gemini announcing their support for PEPE and listing the meme coin said:
“PEPE builds upon the popular “Pepe the Frog” meme created by Matt Furie in the early 2000s. PEPE continues the tradition of giving the control of money back to the people. We’re here to empower you with greater choice, independence, and opportunity, as we continue on our mission to unlock the next era of financial, creative, and personal freedom.”

Coinbase Avoiding PEPE Listing
Crypto exchange Coinbase is likely to avoid listing PEPE amid their disputes with the US SEC about listing securities. Meanwhile, the community has asked the exchange to list PEPE in response to its misinformation about the meme coin. Top exchange Binance is expanding its support for PEPE and FLOKI after listing last week.
PEPE price fell 9% in the last 24 hours, with the price currently trading at $0.0000017. The 24-hour low and high are $0.000001762 and $0.0000020, respectively. Furthermore, the trading volume has increased slightly in the last 24 hours, indicating an interest among traders.
