According to DEXTools, the new meme token was launched on the Ethereum network on the morning of May 8th. At the time of writing, the coin has a daily trading volume of $68.3 million and a market cap of $33.6 million.
Probably, the name of the token refers to the “fourth rule” of the head of Binance, Changpeng Zhao – do not pay attention to FUD.
According to Etherscanfees for simply transferring coins on the Ethereum network currently range from $4.77 to $4.88.
Recall that an analyst at Scimitar Capital under the nickname Alex reported that holders of the Pepe (PEPE) meme-token realized $160 million in profit. The main amount comes from users who purchased the asset in the first week after launch.
