The Melanin Stock Symbol

Recently we published a blog post refuting the myth of the melanin stock market. One aspect of that urban legend which stuck is the idea of a melanin stock symbol.

The Melanin Stock Symbol was devised to draw energy from the Melanin Stock Market urban legend.

We took the legend of a melanin stock market and ran with it. Could a melanin stock market exist? How would the melanin economy function? How would melanin be traded as a commodity? How would a melanin stock symbol look?

For the last we present the image of the melanin stock symbol. Remember, humans are not earth’s only source of melanin. Melanin being sold at $350 a gram more than gold comes from sepia officinalis, the common cuttlefish. Melanin is the output of a chemical process known as Melanogenesis. It starts with an amino acid known as tyrosine which when oxygenated by an enzyme called tyrosinase becomes first dopa then dopaquinone and lastly melanin.
