- BONK, a Solana-based meme coin, has become the 3rd largest dog-themed cryptocurrency by market capitalization after seeing massive 876% gains in the past month.
- BONK now sits among the top meme coins Dogecoin and Shiba Inu, though it has a long way to go to match their multi-billion dollar market caps.
- BONK’s growth is partly attributed to renewed interest in Solana, its parent blockchain, which has nearly tripled in value since October. A Solana resurgence could further boost BONK.
The meme coin market continues to see massive gains, with Solana‘s canine-themed BONK token reaching new heights. BONK has now entered the top three dog coins by market capitalization after surpassing Elon Musk-inspired FLOKI token.
BONK’s Meteoric Rise
BONK has seen tremendous growth over the past month, with gains of 876% propelling it up the market cap rankings. From late October to late November, the token surged an astounding 1,700%, hitting multiple all-time highs along the way. Its latest milestone comes after a 24% daily increase to $0.000000731.
Top Dogs: DOGE and SHIB
BONK now sits among the top dogs of meme coins, alongside Dogecoin (DOGE) and Shiba Inu (SHIB). However, BONK still has a ways to go to catch the two dominant dog cryptos, with DOGE boasting a $13 billion market cap and SHIB commanding over $55 billion.
The Solana Factor
Much of BONK’s success is attributed to the renewed momentum of its parent blockchain, Solana. After a brutal 2022, Solana has nearly tripled in value since October as the network aims to rebuild from last year’s crash. A revitalized Solana ecosystem is fueling speculation in related altcoins like BONK.
The Road Ahead
BONK maxis remain bullish on the meme coin’s future potential. At Solana’s peak in late 2021, the SOL token came close to $260. While still early, a full-blown Solana comeback could provide the rising tide to lift BONK to even greater heights.
In the fickle world of meme coins, BONK continues to gain momentum. The altcoin’s parabolic growth shows no signs of slowing down as mania takes hold in the crypto dog token niche. As Solana rises from the ashes, BONK may have room to run before catching the top dogs.
