Since Slim Jim began furiously promoting Dogecoin on Twitter in February, the number of followers on its account has quintupled.
United States-based meat snack Slim Jim is the latest food brand to jump into the crypto space by promoting the meme-centric cryptocurrency Dogecoin.
In a tweet today, Slim Jim announced it was launching its own nonfungible token, or NFT, featuring the Dogecoin (DOGE) Shiba Inu on the face of the moon underneath a rocketship with the body of the slender meat snack. The NFT offering follows a fury of tweets since February — the sheer number of which might even make Elon Musk jealous — in which Slim Jim has posted pro-DOGE memes, messages, rocketships, and crypto-related hashtags in advance of Doge Day to its more than 96,200 followers.
Since it’s #Doge420 I gotta say that it’s been an honor to be a part of all the insane memes, the all-powerful and always positive #DogeArmy, and the mission to #DoOnlyGoodEveryday We’re going to do a lot of good together and you better believe, we’re just getting started — Slim Jim (@SlimJim) April 20, 2021
At the time of publication, the highest bid on Slim Jim's NFT, available through the OpenSea online marketplace, is currently 0.06 Ether (ETH), or roughly $136.
