Zinger Key Points
  • An investor turned a modest $5,879 into $7 million with strategic WIF token trades.
  • Memecoins defy crypto market trends, with some like WIF delivering four-figure percentage gains.

Popular Solana SOL/USD meme coin Dogwifhat WIF/USD is up 34% over the past seven days, allowing a trader to cash out their substantial gains.

What Happened: On-chain analytics firm Lookonchain shared on Wednesday that the trader initially spent $5,879 to acquire 6.1 million WIF tokens on Dec. 8, 2023. As the value of WIF surged, the investor strategically sold 4.7 million WIF tokens for $1.57 million.

Despite these sales, the investor still holds 1.4 million $WIF tokens, currently valued at $5.47 million. Lookonchain noted that the total profit from these transactions amounts to approximately $7 million, representing a 1,197x gain.

Why It Matters: Meme coins like WIF are resurgent, posting double-digit gains despite dips in major cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum.

Dogwifhat has seen its value increase by over 30% over the past week, alongside other “Dogecoin killers” like Floki FLOKI/USD.

Cryptocurrency traders like Cold Blooded Shiller see more upside for WIF playing out:
