Pepe’s Market Cap Falls Below $1 Billion After Investors Withdraw Profits

Pepe’s market cap below $1 billion – Trending meme coin Pepe (PEPE) saw a dip in its market cap after investors withdrew their profits. During the early hours of May 8, the market cap of the coin dropped below $1 billion. Pepe’s price has decreased by over 24% in the last 24 hours as a result.

Pepe (PEPE) market cap loses more than $300 million

Recall that Pepe (PEPE) had been in the news for the right reasons as its market cap crossed $1 billion a few days ago. However, the market cap dropped as low as $827 million at the time of writing. This means that it has lost over $300M from its previous $1.2 billion.

It was reported that during its price surge, several people made profits in the millions, and they might now be cashing out their ROI. According to Santiment, a blockchain analytical firm, PEPE investors were withdrawing profits and converting them into Ethereum (ETH).

The firm further reported that active deposits on the Ethereum network reached over 20,000 on May 5, making it its 18-month high. See the screenshot below:
