Understanding BONK’s 68% spike: Is this just the beginning?

    BONK saw social metrics expand as prices soared higher in the past two days.
    The 78.6% Fibonacci level was a make-or-break level.

Over the weekend, the popularity of BONK, the memecoin, experienced a significant increase, soaring fivefold in just two days. According to AMBCrypto’s interpretation of Santiment data, this surge in interest was driven by market participants, although not all of it was favorable.
