In a dramatic surge in the previous week, the price of $SNEK, a meme cryptocurrency rooted in the Cardano (ADA) ($ADA) ecological system, has escalated by greater than 200 percent in a leap that took place predominantly over the weekend, a time traditionally characterized by reduced trading volume.
SNEK is, at the time of publication, currently worth $0.00038 after experiencing a slight decline from a high near $0.0005. The digital currency was earlier this coming week trading t around $0.00015, representing a whole lot of boost in several days.
With the surge in value, SNEK has evolved the fourth- largest crypto token within the Cardano (ADA) ecological system, with a market cap of around 80 Million ADA, equivalent to over $30 Million. With a gap of merely $2 Million separating it from the third position, SNEK is not far from another whole lot of leap in the rankings.
Remarkably, the SNEK crypto token is less than a 30 days old. It resurfaced on April 30 in a cryptocurrency market awash with Meme Coin crypto tokens, riding the wave ignited by the popularity of rival meme-inspired digital currency Pepe Coin ($PEPE).
Self-proclaimed as “the chillest meme cryptocurrency on Cardano,” SNEK’s primary aim is to foster community, stimulate the (DeFi) sector within Cardano (ADA), and reward its holders.
Regardless of the lack of a defined roadmap or headline-making announcements, the success of SNEK in its inaugural 30 days suggests it has found fertile ground within the Cardano (ADA) community.
