What's the goal?
The goal is to imagine a new economic system that applies selective pressure to the content and users in order to have a great flow of original content that gets sorted through offer and demand.
Votes, likes, retweets, etc. are infinite so of low value by nature. Giving limited action potential makes the act of 'liking' by buying a more pertinent indicator of interest. Also having to sell to reinvest should better illustrate current felt trends.
What's a meme?
  • A meme is 'an idea, behavior, or style that spreads from person to person within a culture'.
  • A meme acts as a unit for carrying cultural ideas, symbols, or practices that can be transmitted from one mind to another through writing, speech, gestures, rituals, or other imitable phenomena with a mimicked theme.
  • Supporters of the concept regard memes as cultural analogues to genes in that they self-replicate, mutate, and respond to selective pressures.
  • What's EuroKeks?
  • Eurokeks is a experimental parody stock exchange. It is a fully functional stock exchange market for memes.
  • Offer and demand apply selective pressure on memes and let the best win.
  • Unlike 'likes' and 'upvotes' you show appreciation and interest by buying shares and selling them. Watching is free!
  • No cheating! All transactions are public. Anyone can monitor themarket health.
  • Democracy?
    • Every user will be polled for every decision on how the economy is tailored.
    • If he isn't present or wants to refer to another more experienced user he can delegate his decision to a delegate of his choosing.
    • Pretty much all the information is available and displayed nicely so everyone can take an informed decision.
    • If economists are interested in the birth of an open realtime economic system, feel free tojoin the Discord.
