DogWifHat (WIF) & PEPE Plunge: Whale Sell-Offs Spark Fears, Investors Question Meme Coin Mania

The past week has been a wild ride for meme coins, with Dogwifhat (WIF) and PEPE taking a nosedive amidst market turmoil. WIF, a popular Solana token, took a staggering 25% hit, plummeting from its weekly high of $3.4. Similarly, fellow Solana meme coin POPCAT suffered a brutal 34% drop, reaching lows not seen since mid-April.

Meanwhile, Ethereum-based PEPE, which enjoyed a brief rally earlier in the week, faced a harsh reality check with an 18.5% sell-off, leaving investors shaken. But the story goes deeper than just market fluctuations. Recent revelations about the actions of major holders, often referred to as “whales,” have fueled fears and cast a spotlight on their influence.

Whales Shedding Weight: WIF ‘s Woes

On-chain data analysis by Lookonchain paints a concerning picture. A whale seemingly panicked, dumping 1.7 million WIF tokens at a loss. They then swapped these tokens for other Solana meme coins, including BONK, in the aftermath of the price drop. This fire sale not only impacted WIF but also triggered a ripple effect, influencing the prices of other meme tokens within the Solana ecosystem.
