Friday, December 28th, 2023 – Altcoins like Ethereum are hotting up and Meme Kombat is joining the party too, after raising more than $5 million to pass the 50% milestone in its ICO. As the new meme coin enters the latter half of its presale its fundraising run rate is accelerating as whales pile in.
Meme coins remain one of the most popular segments in crypto, providing traders with the chance to snare gains that can often be measured in the thousands of percent. Meme Kombat is well-positioned to be among the big hitters when it launches. The token has a $10m hard cap target.
Among the meme coin heavyweights that Meme Kombat aspires to emulate are the likes of Pepe and Shiba with their multi-billion dollar market capitalizations.
But in the meme coin space, even more so than elsewhere in crypto, new coins are being launched every day in a hyper-competitive market. Pawswap (+225%) and Baby Grok (+75%) and Spurdo (+85%) are just three of the coins that have been setting the pace for meme coins over the past seven days, for example.
Across crypto as a whole, buyers are back in the driving seat as the expected approval of a spot bitcoin ETF fuels a new bull run for the industry. Bitcoin is the best-performing financial asset of 2023 and altcoins are beginning to catch up.
Meanwhile, the ETH price was nearly 10% higher yesterday, blasting past $2,400. Earlier in the week it was the turn of Ethereum competitor Solana to lead the pack, at one stage chalking up a daily gain of 20%.
Helping to propel Solana higher was the remarkable rise of BONK, a meme coin that runs on its blockchain. It is no surprise then, as meme coin fever continues, that Ethereum-powered Meme Kombat has raised $5 million in double-quick time.

Meme Kombat brings together all the top meme coins in a battling arena where players bet on the outcome of the bouts. Its unique design means it has appeal across the meme coin space, regardless of which of the coins a user might actually hold.
Altcoin season is hotting up and meme coins like Meme Kombat continue to be all the rage. $MK token is just about to enter Stage 9 in which it will be priced at $0.268. In a week’s time, on January 4 the price rises to $0.272. It means there will only be a week to go to grab the lowest price available – and then it is the final price in presale until the hard cap is reached.
There is a strong chance that the current price stage will sell out before the one-week window closes, so there’s no time to lose to conduct due diligence before deciding to buy.

Meme coins continue to act as a magnet for traders seeking to pocket large alpha returns, but the space has matured beyond just chasing short-term price movements.

According to crypto data site CoinGecko, GameFi has a market cap of $20.6 billion while gambling tokens are valued at $796 million and growing. CoinGecko values the meme coins sector at an impressive $23.7 billion. Meme Kombat is perfectly positioned to pitch into this expanding total addressable market of $45 billion.

All of those communities will have an interest in how their favored meme coin fares in the Meme Kombat Arena. Many will want to partake of the fun and profits to be had from involvement in the ecosystem.
Meme Kombat’s Season 1 will be available after the presale is sold out and the project launched. There are 11 meme characters you can battle with in Season 1: Milady, Baby Doge, Doge, Floki, Kishu, Mong, Pepe, Pepe2, Shiba, Sponge and Wojak.
Season 2 meme characters will be out just before Season 1 wraps up.

In the final analysis, meme coins live and die by the strength of the communities that they can build. Success can depend on subjective elements such as the humor and the artwork a project creates.
But Meme Kombat has the advantage of riding on the coattails of the popularity of the coins that will feature in its games, so it has plenty of strings to its bow.
Still, on artwork and humor alone, Meme Kombat knocks it out of the park. Ultimately, its strong utility value as a battling arena that blends gambling and gaming is the clincher.
