The recent surge in meme coins has undoubtedly created a frenzy in the cryptocurrency market. As more meme coins are being traded, the increased demand has led to a significant rise in Ethereum gas fees. This increase in gas fees benefits Ethereum, as it becomes the primary platform for meme coin transactions. Consequently, Ethereum may emerge as the ultimate winner in this meme coin craze.
However, it is crucial for investors to be cautious and aware of the potential risks involved in this volatile market, as well as the impact of high gas fees on their investment returns.
