It’s been a tame start to the week for cryptocurrency markets, with most major coins locked within recent ranges, though admittedly close to multi-week highs, and with traders hunting top crypto gainers today instead turning to the more volatile and unpredictable on-chain altcoin markets.

Bitcoin (BTC) was last trading in the $68,000s, having dipped back from above $70,000 on Mt Gox wallet movement jitters.

Ethereum (ETH), meanwhile, was last in the $3,800s. Traders continue to wait for word on when recently approved Ethereum ETFs will actually launch.

Core PCE inflation data out later in the week could shake things up in the market.

The data is expected to show that MoM core price pressures declined to 0.2% in April from 0.3% in March.

That would be a relief to the market, and bolster confidence that Fed rate cuts are coming later this year.

Politics/the regulatory landscape is also a tailwind for the market right now.

US Presidential candidate Donald Trump was out with more pro-crypto commentary last week.

And the SEC’s recent u-turn to approve Ethereum ETFs indicates the anti-crypto crowd in the US is losing power.

Major cryptos could soon retest recent highs. Traders looking for faster gains will be drawn to the risky on-chain markets, however.

New meme coins and shitcoins are launched every single day. If traders can get in early on a coin that gains traction, they can make quick 10x or more gains.

Of course, traders must remember that most of these newly launched coins are scams or pump-and-dump tokens.

Almost none retain any long-term value. Traders must do their own research and never risk more than they can afford to lose.

That being said, here are some of the top crypto gainers today as per the DEX analytics tool DEXScreener.

Top Crypto Gainers Today

King of Memes (KING)

A newly launched Solana meme coin, King of Memes (KING), went up nearly 750% in the past 24 hours.

DEXScreener shows the token has already achieved a market cap of $642 million.

But something seems very fishy with this token. It only has $670,000 in locked liquidity.

And it has only seen $2.4 million in trading volume since its launch.

DEXScreener’s community of users also appears not to trust the coin.

It has only one rocket and fire emoji vote but 12 red flag votes, suggesting low trust.

The meme coin’s X account has also been restricted.

This token is very likely to be a scam. Traders should probably stay away.

Swapuz (SWAPUZ)

Another fishy-looking coin, Swapuz (SWAPUZ), also achieved a massive market cap shortly after launch.

According to DEXScreener, SWAPUZ’s market cap was last around $420 million, and the token has increased by 640,000% since launch.

Like with KING, this upside has been achieved despite relatively low trading volumes of $4.8 million, however.

The coin’s X account also hasn’t seen any notable activity since last year.

Things don’t look right. Traders would do their best to stay away.

MOJO The Gorilla (MOJO)

A recently launched Ethereum meme coin, MOJO The Gorilla (MOJO), has risen nearly 80,000% since launch.

As per DEXScreener, that’s taken its market cap to $3.1 million, with $250,000 in locked liquidity.

Go+ Security identifies two aspects of the token’s contract that are concerning.

Just because this meme coin looks less scammy than the first two in this list doesn’t mean it’s without risk.

Traders must always remember most newly launched tokens are pump-and-dumps schemes.
