Pepe Coin was seen as a money-making machine where $1,000 goes in and $1 million comes out. Truth (reality) is stranger than fiction and the new meme currency investors learned it the hard way. Agreed that it made early investors millionaires in a week, but it applies to holders who took an entry position within six hours of its release. An investor made $8 million with an investment of $251 after buying Pepe Coin within an hour of its launch.

Binance and other leading cryptocurrencies listed Pepe Coin at a time when it neared reaching its all-time high of $0.00000431.

The sell-offs and profits bookings have made new entrants sit with nothing but bags full of tokens heading south. Pepe Coin crashed during the weekend and is bleeding for the last five days. It is now down 60% from its ATH and is on the verge of adding an extra ‘zero’ if the slump continues. So will Pepe Coin survive the onslaught or will a new meme currency be born to repeat the cycle? Only time will tell. Remember to separate reality from fiction the next time around to survive in the crypto markets.
