Social Media Hype Has Helped Pump Notcoin’s Bullish Activity

One key driver influencing Notcoin’s bullish performance and interest among retail traders is the hype it’s receiving on social media platforms. With only 2 weeks after launching, the altcoin accumulated the second-largest number of social mentions within a 12-hour timeframe. On 3rd June 2024 alone, the cryptocurrency accumulated over $4 billion in trading volume, thereby overtaking Circle’s USDC stablecoin.

Whales Have Significantly Increased on Telegram’s TON Ecosystem

The cryptocurrency’s rising social sentiment has attracted large investors and whales to invest and, at the same time, brought large numbers of users to the Telegram ecosystem. According to X technical analyst Ali Martinez, Telegram’s Toncoin has recorded a 237.5% increase in transactions of over $100,000 within a 24-hour span.

The parent game behind the $NOT token, Notcoin, has attracted over 30 million users to its Telegram-integrated play-to-earn game. According to the team behind the game, their goal is to introduce a new generation of mainstream cryptocurrency adopters. The game managed to amass such numbers within a short duration thanks to its simple play mechanics of tapping to a screen to generate $NOT coins. The game consistently recorded large daily active users (DAU), with a staggering 6 million DAU at its highest. 

A boost feature was available to accelerate earning potential since the earnings were set at 1 $NOT per tap. Users could also purchase an auto-tapper that could tap and earn coins for a continuous 12 hours. However, every mechanism in the game was meant to create a fair distribution to all of Notcoin’s mining phase’ participants. On 9th May 2024, $NOT listed on Binance after premiering on some of the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchanges.
