Today’s price action in the world of meme tokens has generally been positive. For investors in ApeCoin (APE-USD), perhaps even more so. This top meme token has surged more than 6% over the past 24 hours, leading to tremendous interest in expert ApeCoin price predictions.
Like many other meme token surges, it appears Elon Musk is once again behind this move. Today, he changed his profile image on his Twitter profile to a collection of NFTs from the Bored Ape Yacht Club collection. Yuga Labs, which is behind the BAYC and associated with ApeCoin, remains the hottest brand in the NFT world. With the endorsement of Musk, this popularity has surged further.
Accordingly, speculation is now abounding as to whether Mr. Musk has any ownership in a BAYC NFT or ApeCoin. This weekend, a high-profile mint of NFTs for a Yuga Labs’ metaverse project, Otherside, took the market by storm. This mint led to surging Ethereum (ETH-USD) gas fees, and a number of disgruntled potential buyers who missed out on the mint.
However, it’s clear that Yuga Labs and the Bored Ape Yacht Club are here to stay. For ApeCoin holders, this is the latest in a series of speculative catalysts that has resulted in volatility in this token. Whether this surge can continue remains to be seen. But with that said, let’s take a look at how high the experts think this token can go.
