The meme cryptocurrency Bonk (BONK) is emerging as a notable phenomenon. Launched in 2022, this new coin based on the Solana blockchain drew attention not only for its curious timing but also for its impressive subsequent performance. Bonk price charts reveal a climb of more than 50% in the last 24 hours, a feat that has brought new vigor to the Solana ecosystem.
At the time of publication, the price of BONK was quoted at US$0.00000174, up 54% in the last 24 hours.
According to the meme website, Bonk is a project that was born from the voice of the community, aiming to expand and enrich the Solana ecosystem with its multiple functionalities. This community feature was strategic for Bonk’s rapid establishment in the market, which, in turn, generated a series of partnerships with platforms operating on the same blockchain.
With the promise of being the “true community currency” of Web3, Bonk did not hold back on ambition. There are already more than 131 integrations across 9 different blockchains, showing growth that goes beyond the limits of Solana itself. Bonk adoption accelerated by leaps and bounds, with reports that 20,000 new wallets were created on the Solana ecosystem in the days following the token’s launch.
Despite the known volatility of memecoins, Bonk has defied expectations with 260.4% growth over the last 14 and an 823.4% increase month-to-month. This increase reinforces the interest and possibility that meme coins can be more than just a passing joke, gaining a legitimacy and value that many did not expect.
