BONK rises following token burn approval

BONK, alongside fellow Solana meme coins, saw a huge boom during the meme frenzy in early March. However, the dog-themed token suffered a heavy decline following the crypto market correction in early April.

After the fourth Bitcoin halving over the weekend, BONK witnessed a huge surge, recording more than a 77% gain in the past week.

While the Bitcoin halving is partly responsible for the rally across several meme coins, key events surrounding BONK pushed its price to rally higher. BONK DAO had earlier proposed to burn nearly 280 billion BONK from its Treasury. The tokens "represent 100% of the BONK earned by BONK DAO from its revenue sharing agreement with BONKBot since its launch in late 2023," said BONK DAO. BONK recorded an impressive upward move after the announcement.

Token burns are generally considered bullish factors as their supply shrinkage could trigger a price rally if demand stays the same or increases. The proposal, which allowed all BONK holders to vote, was passed via council vote on Wednesday. In an X post, BONK DAO said, "The community vote ended with 418,625,159,192 votes in favor, which represented a 99.9% support of the proposal."

Following the proposal's approval, BONK continued rising, posting nearly a 12% gain in the past 24 hours. While the general crypto market dip affected it slightly, BONK is still in profit on Wednesday.

Listing on European Fintech company Revolut may also have contributed to BONK's rise, considering the move exposed the meme token to its over 40 million users.

Other meme coins are also seeing price boosts amid key integrations

BONK isn't alone in its rally. Several meme coins have also been experiencing impressive price gains amid key integrations surrounding them.

This indicates increased attention in the meme sector, hinting at a potential resumption of the meme coin frenzy.
