Bonk Adds Over $1 Billion to Its Market Cap Following to Binance Listing

The spot trading of Solana’s largest memecoin – Bonk (BONK), goes live on Binance, and the token has surged by 134%.

Less than a year ago, the meme coin BONK was created by an anonymous team. Remarkably, the token’s market capitalization has now surpassed $2 billion, securing its position among the top 50 cryptocurrencies based on market capitalization.

Binance Lists Bonk

The spot trading for BONK/USDT, BONK/FDUSD, and BONK/TRY went live on Binance from 8:00 AM UTC Friday. However, Binance applied a Seed Tag to the BONK trading pairs.

It explained:

“The Seed Tag represents innovative project that may exhibit higher volatility and risks compared to other listed tokens.”

Certainly, Bonk falls into the category of meme coins characterized by high volatility and minimal use cases. The identity of the teams behind most meme coins, including Bonk, remains largely unknown.

Nonetheless, due to the Binance listing, the price of BONK is up by 134% in the past 24 hours, adding at least $1 billion to its market capitalization. The screenshot below shows that it is trading at $0.00003393, ranking 44th based on market capitalization.

BeInCrypto reported that in 56 days since the lows, the token has surged by over 8,820%
