Buy The Dip: Despite often being snuck into our Twitter feeds without credit or attribution, the popular phrase-turned-meme "buy the dip" has a recorded history in the crypto community.

HODL: When ‘GameKyuubi’ posted on the Bitcoin BTC/USD Talk forum in 2013, he wanted to say "I AM HOLDING" to illustrate his steadfast commitment to his coins despite their tendency for price volatility. However, due to a typo, the phrase "I AM HODLING" was born, unleashing a wave of memes, and ultimately becoming a rallying call for crypto investors everywhere.

Vitalik Buterin: Ethereum ETH/USD co-founder was easily one of the most widely-memed characters in the industry this year. 

Do Kwon: In May, Do Kwon, the CEO of Singapore-based Terraform Labs and the parent company of Terra blockchain, UST and LUNA tokens, tried to preemptively downplay rumors that UST was about to slip its dollar peg with a lighthearted meme. 

Little did Do Kwon know that his efforts would be in vain and that he would be “roasting” himself with this meme in the future.

Sam Bankman-Fried: The collapse of the centralized crypto exchange FTX FTT/USD was undoubtedly the most memed crypto event of 2022 on Twitter.
