Recent analysis from IntoTheBlock highlights a striking surge in the number of addresses holding meme coins for under thirty days, reaching an all-time high last month. This surge is a telling sign of the massive influx of new traders embracing meme coin investments. CoinGecko’s latest report further solidifies this trend, revealing meme coins as the standout performers in Q1 2024, boasting an astonishing average return of 1,312.6% across leading tokens.

Notable Entries in the Meme Coin Arena

Among the top 10 meme coins by market capitalization at the close of the quarter, three newcomers – Brett (BRETT), BOOK OF MEME (BOME), and Cats in a Dogs World (MEW) – made their debut around March.

BRETT stole the spotlight with an impressive 7,727.6% return by the end of Q1, outshining its peers. Following closely was dogwifhat (WIF), which garnered a remarkable 2,721% return quarter-to-date (QTD) after going viral and igniting the ongoing meme coin fervor.

Interestingly, the meme coin narrative significantly outpaced other cryptocurrency narratives, such as real-world assets (RWA) and Layer 2, by 4.6 and 33.3 times, respectively, in terms of profitability during Q1.
