Dogecoin and Shiba Inu-led meme economy has seen a sharp rise in trading volumes over 24 hours. According to CoinMarketCap data, trading volumes for the meme sector have risen by 71.99% in comparison to that of DeFi's 16.87% and Metaverse's 21.06%.
This may suggest that more traders are turning to meme tokens to seek out gains as the crypto market rebounds. This may also signify that investors still have faith in the meme cycle, despite flat price action reported for several tokens.
Generally, a spike in trading volume might imply that more holders are currently shifting their coins around. This kind of trend could prompt large price swings as traders are useful in sustaining such moves.
