  • GME led the Solana memecoins gainers chart.
  • dogwifhat and Popcat were other assets that saw significant price increases.

Solana memecoins experienced a recent surge, largely fueled by a single post. Among them, the GameStop token [GME] took the lead in driving the uptrend despite previously exhibiting a stagnant performance.

Other memecoins on the Solana [SOL] network, such as dogwifhat [WIF], Bonk [BONK], and Popcat [POPCAT] have also benefited from the positive trends currently observed in SOL memecoins.

Roaring Kitty sets Solana memecoins rolling

A post made by the social media account “Roaring Kitty” on the 13th of May triggered notable movements in Solana memecoins.

“Roaring Kitty” is the account of Keith Gill, a trader whose videos have previously influenced spikes in memecoin values, particularly in GameStop (GME).

AMBCrypto’s analysis of the GameStop (GME) price movement revealed a significant surge on the 13th of May. The GME value skyrocketed by over 1,600%, reaching $0.009 from around $0.0005.

This surge marked an all-time high for GME, which was setting another record at the time of the analysis. As of this writing, it was trading at around $0.01, indicating a further increase of over 20%.
