Ddablons are the latest trend on Tik Tok
Have you seen the word “dabloons” or doubloons a lot lately and confused as to what’s going on?
Don’t worry. You’re not alone.
A new trend is sweeping TikTok and leaving some people in the dark.
Here’s everything you need to know about the “Dablon” movement.
Maybe you know the word better duplicates from the history pages (or pirate movies). These are gold coins from Spain in the 16th century that were used as a means of payment for centuries.
In its modern incarnation, the reference originated with a 2021 meme (or course) showing a cat putting out a paw and the phrase “four dabloons.” Each toe was worth a “Dablon”. Website Know Your Meme says that this post originally originated on Instagram but has become just as popular on TikTok.
Unsurprisingly, the trend has now evolved. “Dabloons” now refers to an imaginary currency making the rounds on TikTok, which launched in November 2022.
It is a fictional currency used for trading fictional items. A bit of fun. It doesn’t really exist, so don’t confuse it with cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin.
It’s all one big game, basically: people collect “Dabloons” simply by counting how many times they’ve seen Dabloons online. When you see dabloons, you literally get dabloons, and each meme is worth four dabloons.
People concoct this Dabloon economy down to the last detail. They can get into Dabloon debt, Dabloon theft, some are chasing Dabloon inflation, and there are even claims from a Dabloon IRS.
Dabloon stores have popped up, such as B. @dabloongrocerystore, which sell items as harmless as eggs and flour. You may come across videos of cats saying “Hello Traveler” as if you were a weary adventurer navigating the internet. They will then offer you a variety of items with prices in Dablons that you can choose at your convenience.
You need to keep track of your own Dabloon outputs, which some people do with Excel spreadsheets.
TikTok user @britedragon explained it as everyone plays the Neopets game and everyone just plays along.
Some people started giving away infinite Dabloons, but this has started to devastate the economy.
The hashtag Dabloons has been viewed 520 million times on TikTok at the time of writing.
Singer Loren Gray, who has 54.5 million followers on TikTok and is also following the trend, posted a video saying, “I can’t remember how many Dabloons I have. Every other TikTok I see, “Here’s a Dabloon checkpoint, here’s 100 Dabloons. Oh no, the Dabloon economy is collapsing.’”
