Why It Matters: Besides the MAGA coin, the MAGA Memecoin TRUMP/USD surged off the back of former President Donald Trump ramping up his pro-cryptocurrency rhetoric.

Since Trump said, “If you're in favor of crypto, you better vote for Trump,” the TRUMP coin has skyrocketed from a market cap of just over $180 million to an all-time high of nearly $550 million.

It easily outpaced the growth of other meme coins like Dogecoin DOGE/USD and Shiba Inu SHIB/USD, positioning it as one of the top-performing meme coins, rivaled only by Pepe PEPE/USD in the past month.

Trump's promises to foster a favorable environment for cryptocurrencies in the U.S. and the looming U.S. elections may keep political meme coins in the spotlight in the near future.

What’s Next: The impact of meme coins is expected to be thoroughly explored at Benzinga’s upcoming Future of Digital Assets event on Nov. 19.
