Veteran Trader Peter Brandt Asks Macro Guru If Bitcoin Bull Has Finally Awoken From Deep Slumber

The Avalanche (CRYPTO: AVAX) foundation announced the eligibility criteria it has set for community coins, which it will consider supporting.

The announcement triggered AVAX to move 4% higher.

What Happened: After announcing its Culture Catalyst program to integrate memecoins in late December 2023, the Avalanche Foundation revealed its criteria for meme coins eligible for purchase in its $100 million Culture Catalyst program.

The foundation has already started purchasing memecoins without disclosing their names and investment amounts. The multiple eligibility criteria are set up around security, maturity, and popularity, among many other factors:

Fair launch of the tokens that are older than one month.
Tokens resistant to snipe bots or automated trading algorithms.
Tokens should be secured, verified, audited and have undergone due diligence.

While these are the characteristic eligibility criteria, the token should also satisfy certain requirements of minimum holders, supply and other factors:

The memecoin must report at least 2,000 unique holders, more than $200,000 in total liquidity, a market cap of at least $1 million, and an average daily trading volume exceeding $100,000 on Avalanche decentralized exchanges.
The top 100 holders must collectively own less than 60% of the total supply.
The token must have more than 50 liquidity providers.
