Top Story 🎤

Is Memecoin Season Already Over?

$PEPE, the famous froggy coin we covered two weeks ago, has more than 10x'ed since then to a peak of $0.00000420 thanks in part to a Binance listing, before crashing back down to $0.00000287 as of yesterday.

The number of on-chain $PEPE transactions has surged, and with it came a surge in Ethereum gas prices, jumping above $15.82 for a single transaction last Thursday.

And, on top of that, multiple new tokens have come out trying to ride the meme hype, such as SPONGE, TURBO, BOB, and TRBNR.

So what's the problem? Well, there's still the matter of low on-chain liquidity. And the lack of utility. Meme tokens are fun but what do you do with them? Buy and hold until you sell them to someone else at a higher price? Doesn't seem very sustainable.

Two days ago was a major pullback, with these memecoins losing 50% in a day. It's all fun and games until things start going the opposite direction. However you decide to approach memecoin season, know the risks and be ok with whatever outcome happens.
