Here’s some more information about the tokens:

Internet Computer (ICP) is a “world computer,” which was created to enable the full decentralization of Web3 services. Developers can build online services exclusively using the blockchain without needing to rely on traditional IT services which are centralized, insecure, subject to censorship and often unreliable. ICP is the Internet Computer’s native token and is used to encourage network participation and serves as a governance token that allows holders to vote on decisions affecting the future of the protocol.

Pepe (PEPE) is a memecoin built on the Ethereum blockchain. Inspired by the well-known Pepe the Frog character, the token quickly gained traction after it launched in April 2023. Pepe positions itself as a people-oriented digital asset that aims to challenge the dominance of Inu-themed memecoins.

Shiba Inu (SHIB) is an Ethereum-based memecoin inspired by Dogecoin (DOGE), launched in 2020 by an anonymous developer known as Ryoshi. They state that the project was created as a response to a single question: What would happen if a cryptocurrency project was 100% run by its community?

Dogwifhat (WIF) is a memecoin on the Solana blockchain, featuring a Shiba Inu dog wearing a hat. It’s a playful token inspired by Dogecoin (DOGE) that focuses on community engagement through meme contests and charity events, rather than serious financial investment. In the project team’s words, it’s literally just a dog wif a hat.
