Speculation is sparked by Beeple’s remark at Roaring Kitty amid the GameStop hysteria

  • The contentious artwork from the record-breaking NFT artist, which features Roaring Kitty, stokes the intense discussion on meme coins and stocks.

Famous digital artist Beeple, who made history with a $69.3 million NFT sale, has sparked debate with his most recent piece of art, CURIOSITY KILLED THE CAT.

The artwork, which shows a cat that looks like Keith Gill’s online persona—also known as DeepFuckingValue or Roaring Kitty—being slaughtered, has provoked discussion over the inspiration behind the graphic content.

The unveiling of the artwork follows the much awaited, three-year break from the spotlight of Roaring Kitty. After becoming well-known during the GameStop short squeeze scandal, Gill is a financial analyst and investor. He recently presented a livestream that attracted more than 700,000 views.

With Gill’s comeback, interest in GameStop and the larger conversation about cryptocurrencies and decentralized finance have rekindled.

Gill gave a thorough overview of GameStop’s future during the webcast, highlighting the company’s continuous change and expressing faith in the management group. He also disclosed his GameStop holdings, which had seen paper losses in the company throughout its erratic price swings of almost $235 million.

Retail investors have shown fresh interest in meme currencies, such as GameStop (GME), Dumb Money (DUMB, also GME), and Roaring Kitty (KITTY), which were primarily launched from Solana and have some connection to Roaring Kitty.

With its apparent intended allusion to Roaring Kitty, Beeple’s artwork has heightened the already intense discussion about the nexus between digital assets, decentralized movements, and traditional banking. 

There have been conjectures that the composition might serve as a critique of the hazards linked to the exaggeration and conjecture around meme stocks and cryptocurrency.

Despite this, considering Roaring Kitty’s significant influence in galvanizing individual investors and influencing market dynamics, some have questioned the timing and motivation behind Beeple’s artwork. 

Concerns have also been expressed regarding the potentially negative effect on GameStop’s already erratic stock price due to the offensive picture. Experts have also speculated that the sudden reappearance of Roaring Kitty may portend the impending supercycle of meme coins.

Beeple is a well-known artist whose politically charged and thought-provoking digital creations are well known. His apparent remark on the GameStop frenzy has further added to the examination of his work.
