Navigating the world of Solana memecoin trading can seem daunting at first, but with the right information and strategy it is possible to explore potential gems while avoiding unnecessary risks. This comprehensive guide aims to provide clear insights for memecoin beginners, building a strong foundation to make informed decisions in the exciting but volatile memecoin space.


Setting Up a Solana Wallet

Let's start with the basics - setting up a secure Solana wallet. The Phantom wallet is a top choice, available on mobile devices via the Playstore or Appstore.

For PC, visit and click "Download." In the new window click "Install" then confirm the installation.

Now create a new wallet or import an existing one, being sure to keep the recovery phrase or private keys safe and secure. Never share these with anyone.

Getting SOL Tokens

With the wallet ready, the next step is acquiring some SOL tokens. These native coins are needed for transactions on Solana.

Purchase SOL from an exchange like Binance, FTX or KuCoin, then withdraw to the Phantom wallet. Small amounts like 0.1-1 SOL are enough to get started.

Connecting to a DEX

Now it's time to connect the wallet to a DEX (decentralized exchange) on Solana. Raydium is a leading choice.

In Raydium, click the wallet connect icon in the top right and choose Phantom from the menu. Approve the connection when prompted.

Buying Memecoins

Once connected, memecoin trading can begin! First get the contract address of the memecoin you want to buy. Solana memecoin addresses are typically found on Twitter, Telegram groups and websites like SolScan.

Paste the contract address in the bottom field on Raydium, with SOL selected in the top field. Enter the amount to spend and click Swap. The new memecoins will show in the Phantom wallet shortly after.

Finding Promising New Launches

Finding promising new memecoin launches is crucial. Check Dexscreener or Dextools to view recently minted tokens, focusing on those less than 12 hours old, preferably 1 hour or less.

When evaluating new memecoins, look for these key parameters:

  1. Market cap under 1 million, preferably 300-500k
  2. Trade volume 600k to 1 million
  3. 5,000-8,000 transactions
  4. More buys than sells

Coins that meet these criteria have the highest chance of reaching 3-5 million market cap quickly after launch.

Vetting Memecoin Contracts

It's also vital to check the contract address in tools like Soul_Scanner_Bot on Telegram. Look for:

  • Large team token shares
  • Suspicious source of LP funds
  • Other vulnerabilities

Legitimate projects will have active social channels too, especially Telegram and Twitter. A Telegram growing by 2k+ members daily is a good sign. Under 500 members in a day is concerning.

Entering Early

With a solid memecoin target identified, plan to enter early under 1 million market cap, ideally 100-500k.

From launch to 500k cap should take minutes, while 1 million cap should be reached within a few hours. Anything longer than that is often a red flag.

Taking Profits

Once in a promising coin, be ready to take profits on the way up. As investment doubles, consider taking out the initial capital at minimum.

Lack of an exit strategy is what gets many traders in trouble in the highly volatile memecoin space.

Exercising Caution

Most importantly, exercise extreme caution with memecoin investing. While spectacular gains are possible, these are high risk tokens with a likelihood of complete loss. Thorough due diligence is essential. Avoid investing more than you can afford to lose. And be prepared for extreme price swings along the way.


With the right mindset and game plan, navigating the memecoin waters can be exciting and profitable. Follow safety measures, capitalize on opportunities early, take profits often, and manage risk well. There are hidden gems out there with memecoin potential. With some diligent digging those 100-1000x unicorns can be found!
