What’s the Lifespan of a PEPE Token? – Blockpour On-Chain This Week

  • The new $PEPE token price peaked at +4300%.
  • $SG from SharesGram SocialFi platform seems to have rugged.
  • A DC court ruling about Bitcoin ETF approvals sent on-chain metrics soaring.

A New PEPE Token Hops Onto the Scene

Everyone in the crypto markets has heard of the original $PEPE token at this point, but they haven’t heard of all the copycats. The most notable token among them, also with the $PEPE ticker, has been trending since the weekend due to the amount of trades Blockpour shows it has logged (73,923) and total volume it has racked up ($125M). It launched on the 26th and the price rose 4300% by the 29th to $0.044. It has since settled to about $0.017 with decent volatility from bottom to top. Volatility makes (some) traders happy.

Everyone’s Talking About the Bitcoin ETF

News that the DC Circuit Court rejected the grounds on which the SEC denied Grayscale’s Bitcoin spot ETF application jolted the market into buy-mode. The news even sparked presidential hopeful Vivek Ramaswamy to note that the decision “clears a path” to keeping Bitcoin innovation in the US. On-chain from the 27th to the 29th on Ethereum and Arbitrum, daily trade volumes were up 213% and 553% respectively. Average trade sizes jumped 152% and 247% respectively.

The Anatomy of a Rugpull

DeFi traders in the crypto market are no strangers to the rugpull - when the team behind a token rapidly removes liquidity from their token. This week saw $X from X Coin, yet another X memecoin, and $SG from the SharesGram SocialFi platform rug users. The rug on $X took less than 24 hours, which is a unique characteristic of the modern rugpull. The $SG rugpull took about 3 days, and may have been caused by a sleepy developer.
