The BONK meme currency has impressive price fluctuations and a massive concentration of holders

After hitting all-time highs in 2021, suffering the Luna implosion in 2022, and seeing countless crypto-currency companies go bankrupt, we have a newcomer to the meme currency scene, launched on the Solana network. The crypto-asset bonk inu (BONK) has an outstanding token pool of about 41.5 trillion and has managed to gather a market capitalization of about $63 million.

BONK sees its market capitalization climb to $204 million before dropping to $63 million within 24 hours.

The crypto-currency community has discussed a new meme token called bonk inu (BONK) a competitor to dogecoin (DOGE) and shiba inu (SHIB). According to the BONK development team and its “one pager Bonk” is “Solana’s first dog coin, for the people, by the people, with 50% of the total supply flown to the Solana community“.

Airdrop has been driving up Solana’s (SOL) price lately, after the project faced negativity stemming from its former relationships with Sam Bankman-Fried, Alameda Research and FTX. “Bonk contributors were fed up with Alameda’s toxic tokenomics and wanted to create a fun memecoin where everyone had a chance“, explains Bonk’s one pager.
