Morning Minute | Crypto Majors Rebound, Memes Rally Harder

TylerD's Market Summary

๐Ÿ“ˆ The Memes Aren't Dead Yet

Many victory lapped the "death of memecoins" during the last few weeks of big draw downs.

Leaders like WIF fell nearly 70% from ATH during the past weeks and months, and things were looking dire.

But calls for their death seem to be premature.

What Happened?

Crypto alts and memes showed a major rebound overnight after Bitcoin dominance fell majorly.

Solana led the rally, jumping 9%.

And its memes absolutely cooked on the day.

Notable winners on the day:

  • PEPE +13% to $4.97B (ETH)
  • WIF +23% to $1.91B
  • MOG +39% to $520M (ETH)
  • POPCAT +71% to $426M
  • MICHI +61% to $78M
  • MOTHER +28% to $71M
  • BILLY +38% to $63M

PoliFi was hot as well.

Daily gains from the PoliFi majors:

  • TRUMP +25% to $405M
  • MAGA +15% to $125M
  • boden +40% to $97M
  • tremp +20% to $67M

It was a very green day.

Why It Matters

This new memecoin sector of crypto is still in relatively early stages, and many expect it to fail.

Strong rebounds in the meme majors show resilience and inspire confidence in the rest of this sector.

And with new pump dot fun competitors now being launched (see Moonshot from Dexscreener), it doesn't appear we will be seeing a shortage of new options to choose from.

The question that stems from the pump dot fun craze is - can any majors make it in this new paradigm (1M tokens launched in the past 3-4 months) or will liquidity be too sparse to support them all.

We are seeign early signs that the "majors" will be just fine.

Oh, and as for PoliFi - the first U.S. Presidential debate is coming this Thursday at 9 pm ET.

So expect some major action in that sector in the days to come.

The memes are still very much alive, despite reports of their death.
