The study also found that the US leads the world in memecoin interest overall, followed closely behind by India and the United Kingdom.
“The US is unsurprisingly leading the meme coin craze, accounting for 23.6% of the interest in 2023 so far with over 2 million views of the top meme coin pages.
The most popular meme coin in the US this year is Shiba Inu, which generated 60.7% of US interest in meme coins. Recent trending crypto Pepe drove another 11.8% of meme coin interest in the US, followed by Bonk and Volt Inu.”
Globally, Shiba Inu is also the most popular memecoin on the market, followed by Baby Doge Coin (BABYDOGE), Pepe (PEPE), a meme asset that launched last month, Floki (FLOKI), and Solana-based (SOL) Bonk (BONK), according to the study.
