    2. Research

    If you have recently just chanced upon another new memecoin on crypto Twitter and want to find out if it is one that you should buy into, one way to do your research would be to check if the coin is safe or fraudulent.

    You can do so by searching the name of the coin on either Dextools or Dexscreener to obtain the official contract address. The general rule is to stick to the contract on the Ethereum chain as any pairing on other chains like Arbitrum could likely be a honeypot.

    After searching the contract address on Dextools, it will bring you to the trading page for that specific coin you are looking for. On the side, it will display a DEXTscore, which gives a rough gauge of how reliable or safe that coin is. The higher the DEXTscore is, the safer the coin is more likely to be and has a lower chance of being a honeypot.

    3. When to Buy?

    The general rule of whether you should buy a memecoin is to look at the total market cap of that specific coin. The lower the market cap, the higher chance there is for your investment to grow.

    However, you have to also ensure that the volume trading is greater than the market cap.

    These information can all be obtained from Dextools as it is displayed at the top left corner of the specific coin you are looking at.

    Various memecoin projects also have their own community and they often have their own Telegram chat group. You can get a sense of the community by joining these groups before making your decision to buy into the coins.

    4. Where to Buy?

    Uniswap is currently the most commonly used exchange to purchase memecoins.

    To find the coin that you are interested in, just copy the contract address from either Dextools or Dexscreener and paste it into the token search. If the contract address and coin is valid, you will be able to swap Ethereum in exchange for the memecoin, and you’ve made your purchase!

    Do note that the gas fees can become very high when swapping, so it is important to take that into account when considering to buy a memecoin.
