Per the DWF Labs, the LADYS team will “unlock more opportunities for development, collaboration, and community engagement.”

According to the press release, this collaboration will “unlock new avenues for development, collaboration, and community engagement within the LADYS and meme ecosystem.”

Controversial MOTHER Goes on a Meme Coin Volatility Ride


The MOTHER coin is just five years old, but it quickly entered the meme coin volatile machine.

The coin, which is connected to hip-hop artist Iggy Azalea, was launched on May 29 on the Solana blockchain.

MOTHER initially dropped in the first two days of its existence. It went down 73% from 0.01840925 on May 29 to 0.01840925 on May 31.

It then jumped a whopping 1641.4% to 0.086022 on June 1.

Since then, up until the moment of writing, it is down nearly 21%.

It’s currently trading at 0.06812.

Furthermore, the 24-hour trading volume went from $111,326,489 on May 29 to $49,988,936 on June 3.

The trading volume saw a 29.1% decrease in a day, signaling a recent fall in market activity.

The coin was faced with controversy at its launch, with accusations of insider trading.

According to Bubblemaps, insiders bought a whopping 20% of the MOTHER supply before its launch on Wednesday. Hence, they reportedly dumped $2 million worth of the token.

Azalea replied to subsequent Bubblemaps’ tweets, stating: “Meanwhile, because this is my concept/coin – I’m somehow supposed to bare responsibility for what random ppl do with their wallets. When in reality them dumping only makes it harder for me to achieve my goal of is having a coin that is actually part of pop culture.”

PEPE the Most Profitable Coin in May, DOGE Whales Buy $112M in 72 Hours


PEPE was the most profitable among the major meme coins in May, according to the blockchain market intelligence platform IntoTheBlock.

A whopping 96% of PEPE holders were in profit at the end of May, it said.

The coin fell to its all-time low on April 18, 2023, rising 27,567.5% since.

Meanwhile, Dogecoin (DOGE) grabbed quite a lot of crypto investor attention last week.

On May 31, crypto analyst Ali Martinez posted on Twitter that the DOGE whales had bought over 700 million DOGE in the previous 72 hours.

This was worth around $112 million, the analyst pointed out, utilizing the data provided by the blockchain analytics platform Santiment.

Popular analyst Michaël van de Poppe predicted “a massive breakout” for the coin.

DOGE’s current price is $0.1621.

It’s up 2.1% in a day, down 2.8% in a week, and up 2.6% in a month.
