Meme coins still an effective profit source for Smart Money

Scopescan’s Smart Money feature reveals the entities that consistently manage to extract value through unconventional trades. In this report, we will unveil the array of actions undertaken by these astute investors over the past week, with the aim that you glean insights that may prove illuminating.

The data presented in this article is derived solely from Smart Money transactions from January 11-18, 2024. This implies that any purchases and holdings made before January 11 are not taken into consideration.

Smart Money’s Top Performing Tokens

Here are the tokens through which Smart Money has captured the most value this week. The tokens are ranked based on Smart Money’s profit amounts.

Elon Musk inadvertently propels meme coin to $13.4M in profits

When Elon Musk changed the bio of his account on X (formerly Twitter) to "(CTO) Chief Troll Officer," crypto degens took this as a signal to buy the Troll ($TROLL) meme coin en masse. This drove the price of $TROLL up by almost 17x during the past week and 288x from last month. From this major upswing, 437 Smart Money investors gained an average of $30,746.26 in profits, or about $13.4M in total, at an average ROI of 402.58%. However, the token's net outflow of $6.1M likely signals that Smart Money investors are exiting this token once they have made their profits.

Other meme coins that made their marks on Smart Money's gains this week are Jungle ($JNGL) with $11,486.53 in average profits for 27 addresses and Byte ($BYTE) with $5,765.24 in average earnings for 31 investors.

Crypto derivatives token's bullish January benefits 20 Smart Money holders

ApeX ($APEX) started 2024 at $0.33; about three weeks later, it jumped as high as $2.84. This huge leap is likely connected to the crypto derivatives platform's integration of smart contracts from Stacks to scale Bitcoin, putting $APEX into a boom cycle that many other projects associated with the Bitcoin ecosystem have seen in recent months. For Smart Money addresses, their $APEX holdings brought them an average of $24,810.08 in profits this week, at an average ROI of 48.92%.

NFT index project brings $775,000 in gains amid new token mechanics

Floor Protocol ($FLC) recently rolled out an update that links the value of its token to the performance of the top NFTs on Ethereum and other blockchains. Over the past 7 days, $FLC increased by 47.9%, resulting in $21,548.02 worth of average profits for the 36 Smart Money investors that held the token.
