WIF now available on Coinhako

WIF now available on Coinhako

We are thrilled to share that dogwifhat (WIF) is now listed on Coinhako.

What is WIF?

A popular meme coin built on the Solana blockchain, dogwifhat launched on 20 November 2023 and gained instant popularity due to its unique identity: a Shiba Inu wearing a pink hat. This crypto has no utility — the creator has stated on the website that it is “literally just a dog wif a hat.”

Utility aside, WIF token has already outperformed prominent meme coins like Shiba Inu and Pepe Coin in terms of price gains. The community has also been extremely active, with members fundeding a campaign to project dogwifhat onto the Las Vegas Sphere.

As of 19 March 2024, it reached a market capitalisation of over US$2.9 billion and has a max supply of 998,920,173 WIF.

How does WIF work?

WIF is an SPL token, the token standard on the Solana blockchain not unlike what ERC-20 is to Ethereum. Other memecoins may offer staking and burn mechanisms, but dogwifhat keeps their tokenomics simple:

Fixed supply: There is a maximum supply of 998.9 million WIF tokens and no plans for further token creation.

No staking or burning: WIF keeps things simple with no ecosystem or utility functions — it is literally just a token.

Community: WIF’s community determines its value — price appreciation depends on community and market sentiment.

Why does WIF stand out?

With thousands of memecoins in the market and thousands more on the way, the success of WIF cannot be understated. Meme-based cryptocurrencies are designed to capture the attention of enthusiastic online communities with their light-hearted and fun nature, and it’s safe to say that WIF has done that spectacularly well.

In WIF’s case, timing might have also on its side — the token launched back in November just as the crypto market appeared to be turning bullish again. In addition, the honest and easy-to-understand nature of this meme is unpretentious — just a token of a dog with a hat.

What is a Memecoin?

A memecoin is a type of cryptocurrency that is inspired by or based on internet memes, popular culture references, or jokes. Memecoins often have playful or humorous branding and marketing strategies, leveraging the viral nature of memes to attract attention and build a community of supporters. These coins may also serve as a form of digital collectibles, with unique designs or themes that appeal to meme enthusiasts.

Some examples of popular Memecoins that are already on Coinhako include:
