While the market cap of meme coins is significant, it is important to note that this is largely driven by Dogecoin – the cryptocurrency that has seen a major push from Tesla founder Elon Musk. In fact, according to dead-coin tracker Coinopsy, between 90-95 percent of all meme coins end up “dead”.

For context, the table above also shows that when it comes to ranking on the overall crypto space, Dogecoin is the only one in the top 10, while second-placed Shiba Inu is at 30, and the others rank below 200.

The Coinopsy site lists at least 2,126 entries of dead or defunct meme coins. Dead Coins refer to cryptocurrencies that have been abandoned, used as scam, their website is down, has no nodes, has wallet issues, doesn't have social updates, has low volume or developers have walked away from the project.
