BONK Memecoin Rockets: Surpasses 100% Surge and $1 Billion Market Cap


Solana's BONK memecoin experienced a rapid surge, surpassing 100% in the last 24 hours and reaching an all-time high. This propelled its market capitalization to over $1 billion, making BONK the third-largest memecoin after Dogecoin and Shiba Inu, with a current market cap of $1.8 billion. Notably, BONK's trading volume surged by an astonishing 331% to $1.16 billion in the past day, surpassing the combined volumes of other top memecoins like DOGE and SHIB. Early BONK investors reaped substantial profits, with one trader selling 52.3 billion units for $927,000, securing $784,000 in profits.


BONK's Soaring Value: Exchanges, Ecosystem, and Saga Phone Airdrop Boost Momentum


The recent surge in BONK's value can be attributed to its listing on major exchanges, including Coinbase, Binance, and KuCoin. Exchange listings traditionally drive price increases by expanding accessibility within the crypto community. Positive sentiment around the Solana ecosystem has also contributed to BONK's momentum. Additionally, BONK's value has been positively influenced by increased sales of Solana Saga phones. Purchasers of Saga phones receive a 30 million BONK token airdrop, valued at over $700, exceeding the phone's $599 price. This has led to a surge in demand for the device, prompting consideration of potential price adjustments by Solana Labs' co-founder, Anatoly Yakovenko.


Saga Phone Sales Surge: A BONK Airdrop Boost


Solana's Saga phone has seen a recent spike in sales, fueled by the growing popularity of the BONK memecoin and the exclusive 30 million BONK airdrop for Saga users. In a post on December 15, Solana's co-founder Raj Gokak highlighted a tenfold surge in Saga sales within 48 hours, indicating a potential sell-out before the new year. To ensure broader access, Solana Mobile has implemented a one-per-household limit on Saga purchases. Solana’s CEO, Anatoly Yakovenko, has noted the need for a potential price increase in response to the rising demand.


Saga's Journey: From Hardware Launch to BONK Airdrop Success


Launched in April 2023 with hardware specifications and a $1,000 price tag, Saga was officially introduced in May 2023. The launch included a $10 BONK airdrop, initially garnering minimal attention when BONK was valued at around $0.0000004. However, the current BONK airdrop has captured the community's interest, driving Saga's recent rise. BONK is currently trading at $0.00003042, exhibiting significant growth of 105.1% in one day, 142.72% in seven days, and 1,147.27% in 30 days.
