Some analysts have cautioned against buying Bonk at the current levels, including the ‘Dogecoin millionaire’ Glauber Contessoto.


Bonk has now flipped Pepe to take the #3 meme coin spot behind Dogecoin and Shiba Inu, and is at approximately the market cap Pepe reached at its own all-time high in April, before a deep correction.
