The Funniest Crypto Memes 2023
Fancy a few chuckles? It's the perfect moment to take a stroll down memory lane and revisit what had us all tickling in 2023 — from 'explain blockchain' memes to the latest Elon antics and Pepe's space adventures. Here is your healthy dose of the top 10 funny crypto memes of 2023.
Here's a big ol' helping of oh-so-funny crypto memes of 2023! Not that you asked it, but let's be real, we know you love them!
Crypto memes ain't just silly jokes — they shape the culture. From Bitcoin to Ethereum, memes spread ideas that move through our minds quicker than a pig greased for the county fair. These memes got more power than a moonshine still explosion. And don't take our word for it, scroll down and see for yourself. Or as crypto folks say: “DYOR” or “Don't trust, verify." You get the idea.
Now 2023 has been a real rollercoaster ride. More than ever we need a few healthy chuckles! Because, let’s face it — who knows what tomorrow brings?
So to finish off the year, we thought we'd try something fun and lighthearted to brighten things up.
The HODL meme has got itself a backstory! Back in 2013, a fella called GameKyuubi was fixin' to post he was "HOLDING" his coins on BitcoinTalk, even with prices skyrocketing. But after one too many cold ones, he mistyped it as "HODLING". From that fateful moment, Bitcoin enthusiasts no longer 'held' their coins — they 'hodled' them!
But that ain't the end of it, no sirree. As fresh faces unfamiliar with this inside joke entered the crypto world, the meme morphed into an acronym for 'Hold On For Dear Life'. It served as a rallying cry for Bitcoiners to keep their grip tight and 'hodl' onto their coins amidst market whirlwinds.
Fast forward to the present, and HODL memes are everywhere. Each passing year churns out fresh, inventive spins on the original. Our favorites this time are these funny fellas right here:
Well, since we've got the Doge ball rolling with the previous picture, why not keep the momentum going with some fresh Doge meme additions? Now for you greenhorns, Doge itself is a meme that took the internet by storm in 2013. As you can glean from the picture, it features a Shiba Inu dog, most often known by the name Kabosu, though variations with other Shiba Inus have enjoyed their share of fame.
In fact, Doge got so big, it inspired some techies to whip up a coin just for that meme pooch — Dogecoin! Started as a joke but got serious when Elon Musk took a shining to it, shooting it up faster than popcorn in a hot pan. As a result, Doge paved the way for a whole litter of spinoffs, including the Ethereum-based Shiba Inu (SHIB).
Sadly, the viral Shiba Inu dog that lent its name to the meme passed away this year after a battle with cancer. But the legacy of this adorable creature will continue to live on in our hearts and memes, undeniably.
And now, without further ado, here are our favorite picks this time:

The Musk Effect
Since we've been on a roll with all things Elon, let's continue the trend and dedicate this meme to him as well. 2023? More like 'Elon-O-Twenty-Three', right? After snatching up Twitter in October 2022, Elon went full throttle — he crowned himself Mr. Tweet, morphed the logo into Doge and then into X, took a whirl at AI, and made the audacious claim that Grok would outdo ChatGPT. He showed the door to the blue checkmarks, only to usher them back in for a price, and so much more! And let's not forget crypto — this man has a knack for fueling a price rally, doesn't he? It's safe to say that Musk's sway in the crypto world is no joke. But when it does get humorous, it's absolutely hilarious!
And... something new into the bargain:
Trying to explain Bitcoin to friends who don't know a lick about it can be trickier than herding cats! Do you start with the nitty gritty of sending and mining the stuff? Or wax poetic about decentralization? Don't matter which way you slice it, your friends have probably looked at you like you got two heads at some point. Anyway, half the time we start ramblin' about crypto, our buddies end up with glazed eyes like they ate a whole mess of Mama's pecan pie. I guess you gotta start simple and slow with new folks. But regardless of your approach, you sure felt like the person in the memes below. Like … they’d never get old!
Ah, 2023! It wouldn't be what it is without the rollercoaster that was 2022, all thanks to the notorious SBF and FTX. Post that episode, the crypto market resembled a tempest in a teapot, albeit briefly, but the aftershocks are still being felt. Who's to say where these lingering waves will take us? But as with every significant crypto calamity, the internet was awash with memes about the FTX fiasco.
From claims of Sam Bankman-Fried being entangled in a Democratic money laundering plot to the timeless market crash memes that never fail to amuse. Here are our top picks, guaranteed to make you chuckle:
Markets move in cycles like the seasons — winter, spring, summer, fall. After a big ol' crypto winter like we just had, you'd naturally expect a prosperous spring to follow, right? Flowers bloomin', birds chirpin', everything turning green again.
But these markets ain't so predictable as the weather. Still, folks keep right on hoping for that boom after the bust. And hey, we got some sunshine on the horizon — bitcoin halving, ETF approvals, greener charts. Signs of spring!
But remember, after spring comes summer, and after every boom comes a bust. It’s just how the world works. Nothing to do about it, really… Except? KEEP HODLING, BRO!
Buy the Dip Meme
After that last meme, it's practically begging for it – the 'Buy the Dip' meme, a perennial favorite that sees a flurry of spinoffs cropping up across the web whenever traders get the itch to plunge headfirst into the latest crypto crash or perhaps bitcoin itself! For you greenhorns, buying the dip means snatching up crypto when prices drop. Then when they bounce back up, that dip looks like a tasty bargain on the chart!
Now how do ya buy these tasty dips? Some folks buy bit by bit on the way down. Others wait for prices to settle before going all in. Or you can use Bitsgap's handy Buy the Dip bot, custom-made for downtrends! Intrigued? Check it out here: Earning in the Falling Market with the BTD Bot. Otherwise, enjoy the following memes:
Pepe Coin Meme
2023 was also the year of the Pepe! That green frog went hoppin' into crypto with Pepe Coin and leaped its way into the top 100 faster than a bullfrog in mating season. Sho' nuff ribbited to over $1 billion in just weeks — while it took Doge years to hit that mark!
Now, as thrilling as it might be to join the Pepe Coin bandwagon, it's crucial not to overlook the inherent risks that come with memecoins. Pepe Coin, much like its meme counterparts, lacks intrinsic value beyond what folks will pay for it. But let's be real, watching this frog coin soar and plunge is amusing (when you don’t have a bag in it, naturally), much like scouring the web for Pepe Coin memes!
Stop Doing Meme
Y'all remember that "Stop Doing Math" meme? That silly infographic said to quit your arithmetic for all kinds of nonsense reasons. The format got copied every which way in 2020, telling folks to stop studying and whatnot. Shoot, and how those memes spread! Now here we are in 2023 and that meme's still kicking like a mule on Monday morning! Just take a gander at the gems below. No matter how wonky the advice, telling folks what not to do just tickles us for some reason! We get a real kick outta memes poking fun at our daily grinds, whether it's math, crypto charts, or whatever else we're trying to wrap our heads around.
Crypto Bro Meme
For you greenhorns out there, a "crypto bro" is a fella who's real fired up about digital coins. He's usually gotta be right and talks down to folks — more cocky than a prize rooster. These bros got some common traits across the memes: obsessed with Elon Musk, love them libertarian politics, and have NFT avatars they paid a pretty penny for. Shoot, they're always going on about "moons," "lambos," and getting rich. Even when the markets crash, these bros say they're "in it for the tech." Or they "just liked the picture" of their million-dollar monkey NFT. Riiight, bro, sure thing.
We hope y'all enjoyed this little collection of crypto memes. Some are timeless classics, and others are fresh as spring daisies.

What Are Meme Tokens?
Meme tokens are digital coins just like any other crypto. They live on the blockchain, get stored in wallets, and can be used for buyin' stuff. But here's what makes 'em special — they come from viral memes and internet jokes. The granddaddy of all meme coins is Dogecoin, born way back in 2013. Its creators, Jackson Palmer and Billy Markus, wanted to poke fun at all the Bitcoin copycats floodin' the market. To make the most outrageous parody coin, they slapped the famous Doge meme on it, and that pup took off quicker than a coonhound on a scent. Nowadays, folks make meme coins for all sorts of viral laughs — grumpy cats, baby yodas, even spaghetti monsters. The sillier, the better when it comes to meme coins. Now hold on, we don't wanna leave y'all with the wrong idea. Some of these meme coins are actually dang exciting projects with real uses!
