The price of SOL increased by more than 13% during the day, which at first seemed to happen for no apparent reason. However, it turned out that the reason for the growth of token quotations, which a couple of days ago broke through another bottom, was a new meme coin, which suddenly blew up the media around Solana.
Of course, this token, called BONK, again has an avatar in the form of a dog, those are the rules of the game. The name of the token refers to a famous meme, and it is probably the first meme coin on Solana to make such a splash. BONK volumes in the last 24 hours have grown by more than 6,500%, and its price by almost 120%.
Always love me some dog money— Austin Federa (@Austin_Federa) January 1, 2023
At the same time, the token is starting to be accepted by various marketplaces on Solana as payment, and Solana Foundation's Head of Strategy and Communications Austin Federa admits that he has always loved some dog money.
Despite the hype and double- and triple-digit metrics growth, something already forgotten during the last year of harsh crypto winter, it is worth being careful with investment decisions regarding such crypto assets. The hype will pass, but the risk of being left with nothing in the portfolio balance or worse, getting into some honeypot scam is always there.
