    Following an over 87% weekly rally, Dogwifhat became the third-largest memecoin with a $4.3 billion market cap, surpassing the Pepe token’s $3.4 billion. This makes WIF the 31st largest coin among all cryptocurrencies.

    Despite WIF rising over 431% during the past month, the largest holder is still not selling.

    The wallet is holding a total of $139.5 million worth of WIF tokens, bought at an average price of $0.32, with a current unrealized profit of $127.3 million, according to Coinstats.

    Dogwifhat’s price hit its previous peak of $3 on March 14 after fans raised over $700,000 to advertise the token’s logo on the Las Vegas sphere. WIF’s price rose 25% immediately after the crowdfunding effort was announced.

    Can WIF price rally to $10?

    Shortly before hitting the $3 mark for the first time, Arthur Hayes predicted that the Solana-based memecoin would rally to the $10 mark. Hayes, the former CEO of BitMEX and current chief investment officer at Maelstrom, wrote in a March 14 X post:

    Dogwifhat is not the first dog-themed memecoin to reach multibillion-dollar valuations despite being based on an internet meme. Dogecoin (DOGE) reached a record $75.2 billion market capitalization in May 2021 and is currently worth $30.2 billion.

    Dogwifhat price would be $30.8 per token to match DOGE’s market cap, an eightfold increase, which isn’t uncommon in the memecoin world.

    During the 2021 bull market, Dogecoin price rose over 892% in the month leading up to its all-time high, from $0.07433 on April 12, 2021, to $0.7376 on May 6.
