Meanwhile, Ethereum-based meme coins are left scratching their heads, wondering why their numbers are falling apart. Perhaps they should have added more DOGE.

Solana Memecoins Led The Way Followed by ETH and AI Meme coins

Over the past eight months, the Solana (SOL) ecosystem has topped the charts, proving that even memes need a lightning fast blockchain that can handle 10,000 transactions per second. 

Trailing behind, trying to catch up, are Ethereum (ETH) and artificial intelligence (AI) tokens. Because nothing says "cutting-edge technology" quite like programmable smart contracts on a layer 1 or meme about superintelligent tech.

Memecoins on the Solana ecosystem are proudly clinging to a 9.64% market share. Amazingly, these meme coins have stayed stable and in the green for the past week. It's almost as if the market has found the “greenest” patch of pasture.

Dogwifhat jumped 40.17% In 7-days

After a painfully long nap, Dogwifhat (WIF)price miraculously jumped by 40.17% over the past week and gained 12.34% in the last 24 hours, thereby becoming one of the most prestigious meme coins across the overall memecoin ecosystem.

Furthermore, the report pointed out that most SOL memes, those late bloomers from 2023 and 2024, completely embarrassed their elder ETH meme siblings by boasting a staggering average return of 8,469%, leaving ETH memes with a measly 962% in the dust. 

Apparently, WIF and BONK rallies sparked this surge, creating a snowball effect of not only  interest but also growth. Because, as we all know, nothing drives traction in the cryptoverse like a good dog meme, even if it wears a hat.

BILLY is the Highest Grossing Meme coin on

Recently, Billy (BILLY), a Solana-based meme coin launched through, hilariously smashed through the $100 million market cap. That's right, folks, a coin named Billy is now the second-largest token on, which recently crossed the $50 million revenue mark this week.

The token's journey began in early June when the developer sold all his tokens within 20 minutes. Despite the developer's Houdini-style exit, the community swooped in and took over the project. The community’s deux-ex-machina tireless input helped push Billy to new heights. 

Billy’s market cap danced around $72 million over the weekend, taking a graceful dip to $60 million as the week kicked off, only to launch itself 97% northwards to $117 million by Tuesday. Meanwhile, decided to one-up Ethereum in daily revenue, raking in a cool $2 million on June 30, 2024.
