Highlights

  • New crypto assets continue to be added to the cryptocurrency world every day
  • ApeCoin has been trending of late, probably because of its connection with the BAYC NFTs
  • Cryptos are very volatile, and in the case of new cryptos, extreme caution is best

Though Bitcoin, Ether, Shiba Inu and a few other high market cap cryptocurrencies seemingly dominate the cryptocurrency world, tens of thousands of crypto assets are in presence. As of writing, CoinMarketCap tracked over 18,000 such assets.

Despite a subdued phase in cryptos in 2022, new assets are being launched. Not every such asset makes it to CoinMarketCap, and today, let’s take a look at the two recently added assets.

1. ApeCoin (APE)

ApeCoin seems to have caused a frenzy among crypto enthusiasts. Though this cryptocurrency has only recently come into existence, it is tied to the Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) NFTs, which may be one of the reasons behind the rage.

BAYC is competing in the NFT sector that has players like Axie Infinity’s Axie, Beeple, and CryptoPunks. NFTs linked to the last two have sold for millions of dollars each.

That said, ApeCoin is a very new cryptocurrency, which has risen sharply over the past 24 hours. Its intended purpose is to make the project decentralized by giving governance powers to token holders.

The holders of the BAYC NFTs are said to have received some initial ApeCoin tokens.

2. Shiba Predator (QOM)

Not much is known about the Shiba Predator project, but as of writing, its trading volume over the past 24 hours was in millions of dollars.

The cryptocurrency seems to have borrowed a part of its name from the popular meme token Shiba Inu and this may be one of the reasons behind a surge in the trading of the QOM token. What the project intends to do and which particular sub-category like metaverse or DeFi it relates to might become clearer in the coming days.

Bottom line

A new cryptocurrency may come into play at any time. The above two have recently been added to the CoinMarketCap list.

While the APE token has links with the famous BAYC NFT project, not much is known about the QOM token. It is best to remain cautious when it comes to newly launched cryptos, especially when we know that the price of even the high market cap cryptos like BTC is very volatile.
