Solana meme trader reaps 3800x gains: What about you?
- A trader turned $900 into $3.47 million trading a Solana-based memecoin
- Solana’s TVL hit $1.48 billion amid increasing liquidity
Solana’s [SOL] resurgence this year has not been limited to its price action alone. The entire Solana ecosystem has helped traders post major gains, as underlined by Lookonchain’s latest update.
One of the areas Solana has thrived in is memecoins built using the blockchain.
It’s meme season on Solana
The emergence of several memes has turned a few thousand into millions for traders willing to take the risk. However, it is also important to mention that some risk-takers have been rug pulled on the same ecosystem.
According to Lookonchain, one trader turned $900 into a whopping $3.47 million within five days, thanks to a memecoin called ANALOS.
The carnival on #Solana is still going on!
A gain of over 3800x!😱

According to the crypto-analytics platform, the trader in question spent 12 SOL worth $900 buying 2.6B ANALOS, before selling 1.45B ANALOS for 1.43M USDC.
While the trader has already booked a profit of $3.47M, the trader still has 1.12B ANALOS left with him.
However, ANALOS is not the first memecoin to give Solana traders such profits. The likes of Bonk [BONK], MYRO, and POPCAT have also had their fair share of dominance.
Meanwhile, AMBCrypto checked trading aggregator Birdeye to see what has been going on with the Solana ecosystem.
According to what we gathered, meme trading activity is very common on the blockchain. Also, a bunch of memes have emerged lately such as COPE, GFY, and DARK.
The interesting part is that some of these tokens have been following in ANALOS’ path. However, traders will do well to confirm if these tokens are not scams, as some have been deemed to be.
Careful with the excitement
As a result of these moves, trust has returned to Solana, as evidenced by the Total Value Locked (TVL).
A few months ago, Solana’s TVL was worth hundreds of millions of dollars. On the contrary, at press time, DeFiLlama showed that it had grown to $1.48 billion.
This growth, a hike worth 47.63% in the last seven days, was also the highest performance out of the top 10 within the said period.
The TVL is an indicator of a project’s health. When the value decreases, it means market participants are refraining from locking assets on a protocol.
However, Solana’s TVL performance suggests that players trust the project enough to deposit liquidity for increased yield.
How much are 1,10,100 SOLs worth today?
This is also one of the reasons Solana beat Ethereum [ETH] in terms of DEX volume. As it stands, it is likely for traders to start looking for the next gem on Solana, besides the native token.
At the same time, it is not guaranteed that any of these memes would replicate the performances of BONK, MYRO, or ANALOS.
