Memecoin Sector Surges 84% in Past Week, Outperforming Red-Hot AI Tokens

Amidst a buoyant crypto market, the memecoin sector has surged to prominence, surpassing even the fervor surrounding AI tokens.

Anticipated frontrunners in industry sectors like Layer 2s, pivotal for scaling blockchain for broader adoption, and the convergence of crypto and artificial intelligence were poised to dominate performance metrics.

Technological advancements such as restaking, modular blockchains, and DePIN projects were also primed as potential frontrunners.

However, contrary to expectations, it’s the whimsical world of cat-themed coins, dog-themed coins, memes, and fractionalized NFTs that have taken the lead.

Meme Coins Post Substantial Gains

Tokens such as Taylor Swift’s Cat, Banana Cat, and Pop Cat within the cat-themed coins segment have exhibited remarkable growth, with Taylor Swift’s Cat token soaring by 25 times over the past seven days.

Although the cat coin sector might appear modest with a market cap of $730 million, the meme category has emerged as a formidable entity. With an astonishing market cap of $55 billion, meme coins have surpassed liquid staking, Layer 2s, and gaming tokens in terms of valuation.

Within the meme category, dog-themed coins take the lead, with Doge, the pioneering meme coin, reigning supreme with a market cap surpassing $20 billion. The sector as a whole has witnessed an 84% surge in the past week alone. Notable performers such as SHIB, PEPE, BONK, WIF, FLOKI, and POPCAT have more than doubled in value, contributing billions of dollars to their market caps. Other significant gainers include MYRO and MOG.

Solana Emerges as Preferred Blockchain for Meme Coins

Solana, renowned for its minimal transaction costs, has become a favored platform for meme coin trading. The platform is experiencing an influx of new coins adorned with caricatures of notable figures such as Joe Biden and Donald Trump.

The viral tale of a trader turning $260 into nearly half a million dollars with ‘Jeo Boden’ prompted the creation of coins like ‘Doland Tremp’ and ‘Olen Mosk.’

Solana-based decentralized exchanges (DEXs) recorded trading volumes surpassing $2 billion on March 5, as reported by DeFiLlama. Solana’s share of DEX volumes has steadily risen to approximately 15% from less than 2% six months ago.

Presently, Solana ranks as the third largest blockchain network in terms of DEX volume, trailing behind Ethereum (ETH) and Arbitrum.

In the last 24 hours, Ethereum, home to the largest DeFi ecosystem, recorded approximately $4.7 billion in trading volume, marking a positive weekly change of 54%.

Conversely, Arbitrum DEXes witnessed a surge in daily trading volume, totaling $2.1 billion, reflecting an 85% increase over the past week.

According to the Solana Foundation, the Solana ecosystem now boasts over 2,500 monthly active developers. The foundation emphasized that the network has consistently maintained this range, ranging from 2,500 to 3,000 monthly active developers over the past year, underscoring the ecosystem’s ability to attract and retain talent.

This heightened developer activity coincides with Solana’s ongoing impact in the crypto community, marked by several notable achievements. For the first time, the network has surpassed Ethereum in 7-day stablecoin trading volume.

What we write about

I want to save money. Will cryptocurrency work?

Cryptocurrency is essentially virtual money that operates in a decentralized manner, not through a bank but directly on multiple independent computers.

Every cryptocurrency has two main components: the units of digital exchange called “coins” and the network within which the exchange takes place. These units can be transferred between wallets and exchanged on exchanges. The networks in which these coins exist are called blockchains, which translates to “chains of blocks.”
