You might not know Dreesus, but if you’ve been following crypto the last few months you’re likely familiar with his work.
Following the launch of his Simple Cool Automatic Money ($SCAM) token, the pseudonymous developer garnered coverage from a seemingly endless list of mainstream and cryptomedia publications, including Vice, The Wall Street Journal, Benzinga, Mic, The Verge, The Week, and CNBC, among others.
Launched in early May at the peak of the memecoin bubble, SCAM was part experiment — Dreesus had never launched a token before — and part an effort to make fun of other, overhyped shitcoin. However, in the mania it somehow managed to improbably take off, and now its creator is tasked with leading a Frankenstein crypto project that he started essentially by accident.
“There’s so much that’s bigger than me right now… people put money in this, so now I have to make this something useful,” Dreesus told Cointelegraph in an interview in Miami.
