top meme coins by market capitalization

Meme coins are cryptocurrencies originating from internet jokes, which have evolved into valid, yet volatile, digital assets. Dogecoin (DOGE), the first meme coin, was created in 2013 as a parody of the surge of new cryptocurrencies. Despite its humorous origins, DOGE quickly gained popularity, increasing its market cap by over 400% shortly after launch. Meme coins have come a long way since then. There are now over 340 meme coins, including popular ones like Shiba Inu and PEPE, and humorously named ones like Useless Ethereum Token and HarryPotterObamaSonicInu.

Top 10 meme coins

Memecoins are a fascinating subset of the crypto economy. They are blockchain projects based on popular memes, cultural figureheads, or comical characters to grow a community. Most meme coins deliberately have an unserious model being parodies of established cryptocurrencies, memes, and much more.

Regardless, crypto enthusiasts have embraced meme coins, with some rising to a billion-dollar market capitalization. This sector has only continued to grow since the first meme coin launched ten years ago. Here are the top ten meme coins in the market today:

Dogecoin (DOGE)

Dogecoin (DOGE) launched in 2013, the brainchild of software engineers Billy Markus and Jackson Palmer. The project took after the Shiba inu dog meme, a popular internet meme and parodied Bitcoin, the only notable coin at the time. Dogecoin remained irrelevant for years before gradually rising in the late 2010s and had its breakout moment in 2019 when it appreciated tremendously.

It continued to rise into 2020 with the help of some promotional tweets by Elon Musk. Dogecoin then had periods and corrections but has consolidated its position as one of the most popular cryptocurrencies in history. Today, Dogecoin remains the biggest meme coin, twice the size of its nearest competitor. The DOGE is synonymous with meme coin growth and will likely retain this position for some time.

Shiba Inu (SHIB)

Dogecoin’s success in 2020 inspired the rise of Shiba Inu (SHIB). This project came from the pseudonymous group Ryoshi and sought to challenge DOGE for meme coin supremacy. Shiba Inu takes Dogecoin’s likeness closely, and its name derives from Dogecoin’s meme symbol. Notably, SHIB runs on the Ethereum blockchain.

Shiba Inu rose fast as it rose in a bull market. There was soon chatter about Shiba In being the DOGE killer. However, this prediction failed to materialize, and SHIB remains in second position. Shiba Inu sought to pivot in 2023 to introduce some utility to the project and create its unique identity from Dogecoin.

PepeCoin (PEPE)

Pepe the Frog is one of the most popular internet memes, particularly among right-wing circles. In 2023, a meme coin taking the likeness of this meme launched using the name Pepe. PEPE soon catapulted into the top echelons of meme coin charts and became the breakout meme coin of 2023. It is also an ERC-20 token

Pepecoin is, in many ways, the quintessential meme coin. It took a popular internet meme and used it to launch a cryptocurrency into the limelight overnight. PEPE’s value experienced the typical meme coin upheaval of a great rally followed by correction. At press time, it was third in meme coin rankings by market capitalization.

El Hippo (HIPP)

Hippos are meme-able creatures, with their broad faces, large bodies, and fearsome teeth creating a formidable presence. El Hippo seeks to grow a meme coin community the size of a hippo. HIPP has gained some traction as a transparent ERC-20 token with a community-centric vision.

El Hippo prides itself on fair tokenomics and an active community. These are qualities that transcend the blockchain industry, and the project is looking to leverage them to ensure $HIPP goes to the moon. Accordingly, El Hippo has the fun ethos of memecoins and also adds value through deflationary tokenomics, community development and a future NFT collection. The team hopes that these features will create an unstoppable force worth the name.

Floki (FLOKI)

One cannot overstate the influence of Elon Musk in the meme coin sector. Musk got a puppy naming it Floki, after a legendary Viking figure. Behold a new meme coin emerged by the name of Floki. The project seeks to have more dimension to distinguish it from existing meme coins. Floki implements a broader ecosystem consisting of an NFT marketplace, decentralized finance, and crypto education content. The success of these side ventures will get the test of time, but Floki is notable first for its meme coin origins.

Whether to remain a pure meme coin or add utility will be in developers’ minds moving forward. Floki’s success with its utility credentials could encourage other creators to take this route.

Baby Dogecoin (BABYDOGE)

Well, you probably think this is yet another Dogecoin copycat. That is true for the name, but Baby Dogecoin seeks to achieve more. Baby Dogecoin looks to improve on Dogecoin by improving transaction speeds and adding better deflationary economics.

Notably, BABYDOGE runs on the Binance Layer-1 blockchain and benefits from association with the mega-exchange. Baby Dogecoin launched in 2021 and has certainly benefited from the name of the pioneer meme coin in giving the project visibility. Unlike some of the more recent meme coins, it has retained its pure meme coin credentials without attempts to add more forms of utility.

HarryPotterObamaSonic10Inu (INU)

The inspiration for meme coins is as varied as the market can allow. Harry Potter books became arguably the most popular book franchise ever. Barack Obama’s election was also a pivotal point in American political history. Well, these two became the inspiration for a meme coin.

This meme coin also runs on Ethereum. The meme concept can seem like a stretch because somehow Barack Obama and Harry Potter meet in the absurd universe. They use magic spells and political maneuvering to launch their crypto project, which inspires this project. It launched strongly in 2023, with the INU token getting into the top ten meme coin rankings and remaining there.

Dogelon Mars (ELON)

Dogelon Mars is yet another example of Elon Musk’s influence on this sector. Musk is notable for having a space exploration company and has long sought to land on Mars. Well, Dogelon Mars shares similar dreams and piggybacks off both Dogecoin’s success and Musk’s ambitions. Unsurprisingly, the token name is ELON.

Notably, Ethereum founder Vitalik Buterin donated 43% of ELON tokens to a charitable foundation in 2021, which stated that it would lock the tokens for a while to preserve value. It runs on the Ethereum blockchain and seeks to be a focal point among crypto enthusiasts keen on space exploration and meme coins.

WallStreet Memes (WSM)

Wall Street is synonymous with financial markets and investments. WSM aims to become the symbol of a movement against the cutthroat capitalist tendencies synonymous with Wall Street. This project has taken a bold approach with a robust social media team aiming to build a community. The project has even embarked on marketing campaigns on crypto media and websites.

WSM is an ERC-20 token making it broadly compatible with Ethereum wallets. It does not come with shiny promises of utility but instead aims to build a movement around anti-capitalism, and perhaps become a worthy successor of the Occupy Wall Street movement.

DogeKiller (LEASH)

2021 was a pivotal year for meme coins and yet another token emerged during that epic market. Dogekiller also aims to replicate Dogecoin’s success and is another member of the “Dog family” of meme coins. It is a part of the Shiba Inu ecosystem that comprises SHIB, LEASH, and Bone Shibaswap (BONE).

LEASH shares the same developer as SHIB (Ryoshi). The token was initially launched as a rebase token, capable of changing its supply with demand. However, that idea was discarded with a relatively low token supply settled upon. It is no surprise that LEASH prices are highest among meme coins even with a comparatively lesser market capitalization.

Conclusion

Memecoin inspiration can come from a variety of places. Dogecoin was a Bitcoin parody; many others launched to replicate Dogecoin’s success, Elon Musk’s vision, and even anti-capitalist sentiment. The cumulative industry is the creation of a sub-sector unique to the blockchain sector. This list presents the ten biggest meme coins in the market. It will be fascinating to track changes and opportunities that emerge in this space in the future.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Are meme coins safe to invest in?

Memecoins are as safe to invest in as any other cryptocurrencies but experience noticeably more price volatility. However, one should be careful to only invest in established meme coins as rogue creators can run scams pretending to be meme coin projects.

Which is the top meme coin in 2023?

Dogecoin is still the largest meme coin by market capitalization. Its status as a pioneer is primarily the reason for its continued dominance at the top of this market. Shiba Inu, which is very similar to Dogecoin, takes the second position while new entrant PEPE has risen to third.

Which meme coins will explode in 2024?

PEPE was the most visible new entrant in 2023. For 2024, the fortunes of individual meme coins could be remarkably better if the entire market rebounds. Dogecoin notably had its breakout moment around the same time there was an epic market rally in 2020.

Which meme coin will overtake Dogecoin?

It is unlikely that any meme coin will overtake Dogecoin soon. Shiba Inu looked like it would surpass its more prominent cousin at some point, but Dogecoin has retained an advantage. Dogecoin may face a challenge from newer entrants like PEPE in the future, but it is likely to keep its top position for a while.

Does Elon Musk own a meme coin?

Elon Musk exerts considerable influence over the meme coin sector and was instrumental to Dogecoin’s rise. His tweets have created significant rallies for some meme coins in the past. However, Musk does not directly own any meme coin.
