The price surge follows a June 30 burn and precedes International Cat Day on Aug. 8.
The Cat’s Meow
Move over, Rover – there’s a cat coin that has taken center stage on BNB Chain: The value of CateCoin ($CATE) has soared 425% in just 10 days to $0.000002264 at the time of writing, according to CoinMarketCap data.
On July 27, CateCoin’s market cap stood at around $14 million. As of Aug. 6, it was more than $70 million.
The CateCoin team defines the project as a “Community based Cat-themed utility project.” The utility includes games, Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs), mobile wallets, and community Decentralized Apps(DApps). Additionally, the team recently released version 2 of their game “Rise of the Cats,” which included several updates.
Some community members in the Catecoin Telegram channel argue that the upcoming International Cat Day on Aug. 8 might be a catalyst for the recent price rise. Additionally, CateCoin burned 34% of its total supply in a major deflationary event on June 30, which could be another contributing factor.
Investing in memecoins, of course, comes with risks as they can be quite volatile. Most memecoins rely totally on community support for their survival. Therefore, it is crucial to set your priorities and invest only what you are willing to lose.
BSC News reached out to the CateCoin team to learn what the team has to say about the recent price rally, but we didn’t get an immediate reply.
