BONK Coin Surges on Solana Network: Binance Announces Futures Offering

In a surprising turn of events, BONK, the meme coin on the Solana network, has experienced yet another significant spike in value. CoinGecko reports that BONK has risen by over 25%, adding to its already impressive surge earlier this week. What makes this pump even more noteworthy is the recent announcement by Binance, the world's largest cryptocurrency exchange, that it will be launching BONK futures offering, along with one for PYTH, a decentralized finance (DeFi) network of oracles that made waves with a massive PYTH token air drop valued at 255 million. This move by Binance, amidst the departure of its high-profile CEO and significant outflows, is being seen by industry watchers as an early market-making play by the new CEO, Richard Teng. Binance Futures is set to launch the USD 1000BONK and PYTH Perpetual Contracts with leverage of up to 50x on November 22, 2023, at 14:00 UTC and 14:30 UTC, respectively. The growing popularity of BONK seems to be closely tied to the recent surge in the price of SOL, as developers rediscover the strengths of the Solana blockchain. While SOL has seen a 90% increase over the past 30 days, BONK has outperformed even further, making it the network's top meme coin.
