This came after Buterin criticized celebrity meme coins in early June. In his response to a post about Azalea’s newly launched Mother Iggy (MOTHER) token. The Ethereum co-founder said that he was “quite unhappy” about the latest meme coin craze. He opined that celebrity crypto projects should have some sort of public-good goal while also featuring”fun mechanics.” 

While many cryptocurrency enthusiasts took the meme in jest, Uniswap co-founder Hayden Adams was seemingly riled up by Azalea mocking the “best builder” in the crypto space as a needy hungry baby. “Iggy could have responded positively, and used profits to donate to a social cause or something. Instead, she condescends the best builder in the entire space, proving his point,” he said in a post on the X social media network.
