Solana-based tokens have seen a sudden surge in popularity. Last year, BONK, an SOL-based memecoin, began to take the market by storm. BONK has since gained a reputation as a potential Shiba Inu (SHIB) and Dogecoin (DOGE) rival. The memecoin has rallied by over 1100% since January 2023. Dogwifhat (WIF) is another SOL-based memecoin that made waves recently. The token’s price skyrocketed after a listing on Binance, the world’s largest crypto exchange by volume. WIF’s price is also up by more than 70% since December 2023, outperforming many top projects. Earlier this month, another SOL-based memecoin called MYRO rallied by 488%.

SOL’s price spike led many other tokens in the network’s ecosystem to follow suit. However, SOL’s price has taken a beating since its December 2023 highs.
