Bonk Outperforms Meme Segment With 7% Spike, Parent Chain Solana Continues To Remain In The Green


Popular dog-themed token Bonk BONK/USD turned out to be one of the best-performing memecoins Tuesday, while the native currency of its parent blockchain, Solana SOL/USD, also traded in the green. 

What Happened: Bonk surged more than 7% in the last 24 hours, taking its gains since the beginning of this week to 27%. The canine coin recorded a 24-hour trading volume of $390 million. 

Alongside, the fifth-largest cryptocurrency, Solana, gained 1.86% in the last 24 hours, mirroring the trajectories of Bitcoin BTC/USD and Ethereum ETH/USD. SOL logged a trading volume of $2.27 billion.

Why It Matters: BONK's latest bullish pivot effectively erased all the losses endured during last week's market bloodbath. Over the month, the memecoin was still down 10%.

However, a noted cryptocurrency analyst, going by the pseudonym, World Of Charts, forecasted a 2x surge for the Solana-based token in the coming days. 

Another well-known analyst, The CryptoBull, described BONK as the “most ‘obvious coin to pump from here,” with other memecoins following suit. 

Price Action: At the time of writing, BONK was trading at $0.00002564, while Solana was exchanging hands at $140.42, according to data from Benzinga Pro
