Is PEPE making a comeback?

Being a memecoin, PEPE relies a lot on the online buzz for relevancy. According to LunarCrush, the meme coin’s social mentions have dropped by 28.9%. However, social engagements have gone up by 9.6%. With that being said, PEPE’s latest rally could be shortlived as the token has very high volatility.

Moreover, without any real use cases or much adoption, there is not much to help the memecoin move forward, apart from the hype. Hence, the frog-themed crypto may see a massive correction very soon. At press time, PEPE was trading at $0.00000149, down by 2.1% in the last hour.
