The cryptocurrency market experienced a sharp drop recently amid geopolitical tensions in the Middle East over the weekend. However, given the reduction in tension between countries and the approval of spot Bitcoin and Ethereum exchange-traded funds (ETFs) in Hong Kong on April 15, the sector has achieved a remarkable recovery.

Following most cryptoactives, memecoins are showing a very significant price increase. Are Memecoins back? Given this scenario, the Cat in a dogs world (MEW) token emerged on the rise, positioning itself as one of the biggest gainers on the market. MEW memecoin exploded 86.1% in the last 24 hours alone, trading at $0.005408.

The memecoin Degen (DEGEN) is also attracting attention in the market with its appreciation of 28.2% in the last day, trading at US$0.03034. The three largest memecoins, Dogecoin (DOGE), Shiba Inu (SHIB) and Dogwifhat (WIF) showed important increases, rising almost 7% each.

In the last 24 hours, both Brett and Floki Inu (FLOKI) have also risen notably, gaining 6.6%. The Brett memecoin is standing out and attracting attention, even being placed as a crypto trend in the market today.

The market capitalization of memecoins is currently US$53,196,586,178, showing growth of
9.6% in the last 24 hours. Furthermore, volume recorded in 24 hours was US$8,279,238,716.

It is worth noting that the memecoin sector has been greatly impacted in recent days and many popular cryptocurrencies of this type ended up recording losses of more than 20%.

Bitcoin recovers and returns above US$66,000 after a sharp drop over the weekend

The recent conflict between Iran and Israel generated more than geopolitical tensions. The impact extended to the cryptocurrency market, which saw a sharp slowdown. The largest cryptocurrency on the market, Bitcoin (BTC), experienced a sharp drop, reaching a price of US$60,800. On Friday, April 12, the price of BTC was in the $70,000 zone.

However, following a reduction in tension between the countries and the approval of exchange-traded funds (ETFs) in Hong Kong, Bitcoin managed a notable recovery, propelling its price above $66,000.
