There is more to the story

Thanks to the sudden price surge, FLOKI also became the most traded highlight web3 project in the BNB Chain in the last 24 hours, reflecting the memecoin’s popularity among traders.

However, the growth was short-lived as soon as FLOKI underwent a price correction. According to CoinMarketCap, FLOKI’s price declined by more than 4% in the last 24 hours. At press time, it was trading at $0.00003523 with a market capitalization of over $341 million.

What went wrong for Floki Inu

A look at FLOKI’s on-chain metrics gave an idea of what went against Floki Inu in the last couple of days. For instance, negative sentiments around FLOKI spiked a few days ago while its price registered a decline.

After spiking during the uptrend, Floki Inu’s network growth also declined, suggesting that fewer new wallets were used to transfer the asset. Additionally, FLOKI’s MVRV Ratio also declined, which was bearish.

Floki Inu’s Relative Strength Index (RSI) registered a slight downtick and was hovering below the neutral mark. The memecoin’s Chaikin Money Flow (CMF) was also considerably down, further increasing the chances of a continued downtrend. In addition to that, the Bollinger Bands revealed that FLOKI’s price was about to enter a less volatile zone, decreasing the chances of an unprecedented price surge in the near term.

How are the other players doing? 

The hype around memecoins seemed to have halted as most of the coins’ performances were negative. For example, PEPE, the current talk of the town, registered a price decrease of over 16% in just the last 24 hours.

At press time, it was trading at $0.000001948, with a market cap of $763 million. The same remained true for the two biggest memecoins, Dogecoin [DOGE] and Shiba Inu [SHIB], as their prices declined by 2.7% and 1.8% in the last 24 hours, respectively.
