New whale grabs 357 billion PEPE as price rises

Lookonchain reported that a fresh crypto whale withdrew 357.34 billion PEPE after a likely purchase on Binance. This amount of the meme coins comprises the equivalent of $2.9 million in fiat.

VanEck starts tracking meme cryptocurrencies

Major wealth funds manager VanEck, one of the spot Bitcoin ETF issuers, has extended its interest in the meme coin part of the cryptocurrency space. On Wednesday, it was widely reported that VanEck launched a new index to track the six largest and the most popular meme coins.

The new index is called MarketVector’s Meme Coin Index, and it trades under the symbol MEMECOIN. This index includes the following meme cryptocurrencies – DOGE, SHIB, PEPE, WIF, FLOKI and BONK.
