Both tokens still represent two of the top five largest meme coins by market cap. They could soon be joined by another from the same network. Indeed, Solana’s Billy has become the latest meme coin to surge in value. The asset is up more than 52% in the last week, as it looks to compete.

The token was launched in June of this year. Shortly after, the token’s were sold by the developer, with the community taking over the project. All of the project’s social media accounts are controlled by that community, with the original developer completely absent.

Those tokens were sold just 20 minutes after BILLY was launched, SolScan data shows. That took place in one transaction, with the tokens offloaded for just $1,116. That amount of Billy would now be worth more than $6 million following its incredible rise. Time will tell if the token can follow other Solana meme coins, and continue rising over the next several weeks.
