Nigeria’s meme coin interest has a relatively different profile than the other 8 countries. Floki and ArbDoge AI captured the highest interest at 24.2% and 20.8% respectively. Dogelon Mars generated 17.4% of Nigeria’s interest in meme coins, despite receiving limited interest share elsewhere.
This suggests that people in Nigeria are also keeping an eye on the less well-known meme coins, instead of aping into those that are already trending.
On the other hand, pioneer Dogecoin generated 61.1% of Morocco’s interest in meme coins, but received only minor interest among the rest of the countries.
The top ten countries are; 1) USA. 2). India. 3) United Kingdom. 4) Philippines. 5) Nigeria. 6) Australia. 7) New Zealand. 8) Canada. 9) Malaysia and 10) Morocco.
The US is unsurprisingly leading the meme coin craze, accounting for 23.6% of the interest in 2023 so far with over 2 million views of the top meme coin pages.
