It was announced Wednesday that Bybit would list Solana’s meme cryptocurrency BONK. Despite massive demand for the meme cryptocurrency by the crypto community, the decision to list the BONK token immediately resulted from the drop in trading volume from rival dog coins Shiba Inu (SHIB) and Dogecoin (DOGE).
BONK Token is listed immediately by Bybit
The crypto exchange Bybit announced the listing of Solana’s meme token BONK on January 4 without any prior announcement.
BONK will be available to trade on Bybit’s Spot market from January 4 at 11 AM UTC. Furthermore, the meme cryptocurrency is also available to trade on Bybit Spot Grid Bots. It is described as the first Solana dog coin made for the people.
In just a few hours after listing on Bybit, the trading volume escalated to $112 billion. The BONK token was listed at $0.0000010 and is now trading at 0.00000023, up more than 130%.
Meme token BONK relies on the airdrop to Solana NFT, anti-Alameda Research sentiment, and the revival of Solana DEX culture to improve the community. In comparison to Dogecoin and Shiba Inu, which both experienced massive rallies during the bull market, the BONK rally is driven by a broader sentiment.
The price of BONK will also give better profit in the future, according to some, and developers have also promised many integrations, staking, raffles, and trading contests in the near future.
