Step into the world of memecoins as we unfold the top five performers of 2023. Discover their unique appeal, how they gained hype and potential future movements.

From being just a whimsical internet sensation, memecoins have emerged as significant players in the crypto market, endorsed by celebrities and fostered by vibrant online communities. Memecoins are a true showcase of the power of hype and community on the internet. However, they're certainly not without their own quirks and controversies. Let's take a closer look at the memecoin phenomena that have stormed the charts in 2023.


  • Pepe ($PEPE) - Extremely popular memecoin based on the beloved meme Pepe the Frog. $PEPE has seen its biggest price increase just two weeks after its release.
  • ArbDoge AI ($AIDOGE) is a Dogecoin-inspired deflationary cyberpunk-themed token in a versatile ecosystem.
  • Floki Inu ($FLOKI) - Initially a reaction to Elon Musk's dog has now evolved into a suite of DeFi, NFT, and charitable products.
  • Baby Doge Coin ($BABYDOGE) - A derivative of Dogecoin on the BNB chain offering deflationary mechanisms and charity projects.
  • Milady Memecoin ($LADYS) - A token associated with the Milady Maker collection of 10,000 generative profile picture NFTs inspired by neochibi esthetic.

Pepe ($PEPE) The Beloved Frog Meme

$PEPE, symbolized by the iconic frog meme, has leapt into the crypto market, garnering a dedicated fan base in 2023. This digital asset not only symbolizes a popular internet meme but also signifies a thriving cryptocurrency that owes its success to the lively and devoted community that supports it.

Since its stealthy launch on April 17th, the $PEPE token has experienced a meteoric rise. This community-driven project has attracted significant attention, with the token's value and trading volume increased by a staggering 29,000%, in just two weeks from its launch. In the following months, the hype naturally cooled off, but $PEPE continued to hold a significant market cap.

Pepe, while whimsical, has demonstrated potential in the unpredictable world of memecoins. Its innovative approach to fusing meme culture with the financial realm, coupled with strong community support, has turned this frog into a prince in the memecoin space.

ArbDoge AI ($AIDOGE) - Cyberpunk AI Ecosystem

ArbDoge ($AIDOGE) is the main token within the Dogecoin-inspired cyberpunk-themed ecosystem. The token operates on a total supply of 210 quadrillions with an 8% tax on every transaction. Part of this tax is burned, providing some degree of deflations, and the rest is redistributed to $AIDOGE stakers. 

The ecosystem also hosts an NFT collection, a staking module, and games of chance. The supplementary token of the platform is called $AICODE, which can be obtained through staking and later utilized for the purchase of NFT and reward distribution.

ArbDoge is based on Arbitrum, offering lower fees and faster transaction times. The token was listed on decentralized exchanges on 17th April and reached its all-time high around 1st May. Some early investors ended up even with a mindblowing 2900% gain.

Floki Inu ($FLOKI) From Musk’s Tweet to a Crypto Phenomenon

Named after Elon Musk's dog, Floki Inu ($FLOKI) initially started as a meme coin. However, its evolution into a comprehensive web3 project with an array of planned utilities and charity initiatives has bolstered its market performance in 2023. With a presence in both Ethereum and BNB Chain ecosystems, $FLOKI is positioning itself as a meme coin with real-world application.

Floki Inu offers utility within its ecosystem through projects like Valhalla (an NFT game) and FlokiFi (a suite of DeFi products). $FLOKI tokens serve as in-game currency and can be used to purchase assets in Valhalla. 

FlokiFi includes DeFi protocols for securing digital assets. Floki Inu also plans to launch a marketplace for NFTs and merchandise called FlokiPlaces, positioning itself as an alternative payment option.

Baby Doge Coin ($BABYDOGE) - Favorite Crypto Pup

Launched in 2021 $BABYDOGE seems to catch up with market trends quite well. From late January 2023 to mid-February, $BABYDODGE has seen exponential growth ranging almost to its last high. Since then, the price has declined slowly, holding a support level of $0.000000002. 

Baby Doge Coin draws inspiration from its father - Dogecoin and is built on top of the BNB Chain, which offers lower fees and faster transactions. Baby Doge is also built to be a deflationary asset, which means that for every transaction a 5% fee is applied. Part of this fee is burned and part is redistributed (reflection) to current holders, raising their $BABYDOGE balance.

The project also has burned liquidity in liquidity pools, its own NFT collection and a dedicated charity wallet that automatically collects fees and supports partnered projects.

Milady Memecoin ($LADYS) The Empowering Meme Queen

Derived from the captivating Milady Maker NFT collection, $LADYS stands as a meme coin that draws inspiration from its unique aesthetic. The collection itself comprises 10,000 generative profile picture (PFP) NFTs, boasting a neochibi esthetic influenced by street-style tribes. 

These one-of-a-kind digital assets can be acquired through the secondary market on OpenSea. Beyond their artistic appeal, these NFTs serve as a symbol of ownership and can be proudly showcased on social media profiles.

$LADYS has seen a significant price action in the Q2 of 2023. The token was listed on 9th May and in no less than 2 days has multiplied its price 1000X. This level of an all-time high was reached once more on 15th May. Of course, a presale process was involved, but we can't deny that the Milady Maker community has recognized this significant market interest. 

The Bottom line - Stay Cautious

In the last few months, we see various meme coins undergo extreme market fluctuations. Their value is typically driven by community sentiment and hype, which can be unstable. Investors should be mindful of potential scams, such as "pump-and-dump" schemes. 

Comprehensive research and due diligence are paramount before investing in this volatile sector. Despite the allure of potentially high returns, always consider your risk tolerance and ensure any investment aligns with your financial strategy.
