JUP’s price action comes as Jupiter has consumed more than $888,000 worth of gas in the past seven days, making it the second-largest DeFi protocol on Solana, a sign of substantial trading on the platform, per blockchain analytics firm Artemis.

In March, Jupiter’s trading volume surged, in part, because of a sharp rise in the trading of memecoins on Jupiter.
