The exchange’s announcement

What else is known? The asset has been added to the platform with a Seed Tag. It is assigned to new projects that may show increased volatility and therefore carry higher risks.

Dogwifhat launched on the Solana blockchain last November. The project uses a Shiba Inu dog as its mascot, as do several other highly capitalized meme tokens including DOGE, SHIB, FLOKI, and BONK.

The project is fully decentralized and community-driven. In January, Binance launched perpetual asset futures with up to 50x leverage. On February 27, an unknown holder of WIF earned $1,4 million due to the growth of its rate with an initial investment of $310.

The asset occupies the fifth line of the meme token ranking and 70th place in the overall cryptocurrency ranking with a capitalization of $1,7 billion. It has increased in value by 190% in a week and by 989% since the beginning of the year. It is also the second most capitalized such asset in the Solana ecosystem, second only to BONK.

Earlier, Santiment analysts named WIF as one of the leaders in terms of yield growth as a result of the redistribution of traders’ profits from bitcoin investments.

On January 11, a trader invested $9 million in WIF and immediately lost 63% of funds on slippage.
