PEPE, the memecoin that faced a prolonged slump from July 14 to October 3, has recently roared back to life.
This resurgence has caught the attention of the cryptocurrency market, and here’s what you need to know.
The primary driver behind PEPE’s resurgence is Bitcoin (BTC). Bitcoin surpassed the $35,000 mark, creating a positive ripple effect throughout the market.
This uptrend is largely attributed to the anticipation of a spot Bitcoin exchange-traded fund (ETF) approval, which could potentially inject significant capital into the cryptocurrency space.
A significant development within the PEPE community is the announcement of a record-breaking token burn.
The PEPE development team shared on X (formerly Twitter) that approximately 6.9 trillion $PEPE tokens, equivalent to around $6,000,000, have been burned.
Moreover, the project has brought in new advisors to provide guidance for PEPE’s future.
The remaining 3.79 trillion tokens, held in the Centralized Exchange (CEX) multi-sig wallet, are earmarked for strategic partnerships and marketing efforts.
In recent market data, PEPE stands out with an impressive price surge.
The coin is currently valued at US$0.000000930549, with a 24-hour trading volume of $455,035,042.79.
Over the last 24 hours, PEPE has seen a remarkable price increase of 25.83%.
Over the past 7 days, the increase is even more striking at 43.63%.
These numbers have resulted in a market capitalisation of $398,014,904 for PEPE, with a circulating supply of 420 billion tokens.
