Why It Matters: Traders were vocal about the poor performance of meme coins. Crypto trader WazzCrypto noted, "I think I’ve lost money on all meme coins I’ve held longer than 1 day for the past entire month." He emphasized that with the dilution speed, the average lifecycle for these meme coins will be very short.

Content creator Jake Gagain tweeted that “generational wealth” will not come to those who sell during a dip, but trader Wizard Of SoHo is questioned if the bull market has ended and whether the “banana zone” was still to come.

With the market still caught in two minds whether this is a bearish turn for meme coins or a short-term “scam dump,” investors may want to remain cautious.
