Dogecoin (DOGE) & Shiba Inu (SHIB) Trending On Twitter, But Only One Gains

Both canine memecoins are at the spotlight, but things are going slower for SHIB.

The top dog memecoins Dogecoin (DOGE) & Shiba Inu (SHIB) are at the center of attention on Crypto Twitter this Friday. Both canine coins are trending on Crypto Twitter with hashtags #DOGE, #SHIB, along with #SBF_FTX, as the disgraced founder of Alameda Research & FTX, Sam Bankman-Fried, was just released on $250 million bail. Moreover, the buzz around Dogecoin (DOGE) is built by Bitstamp, as the top European crypto exchange welcomed DOGE with zero trading fees for a month.

DOGE Records A Green Day

For Dogecoin (DOGE), the social mentions reflected on its increased market price. At press time, the OG memecoin Dogecoin (DOGE) trades at $0.077781, according to CoinGecko. The canine crypto managed to shake off the snow of this frosty crypto winter and recorded a 3.9% increase in the last 24 hours. However, Elon Musk’s beloved DOGE is still 7.7% in the red since last week and some crypto analysts believe that troubles might not be over yet.


This is due to the fact that the top dog coin Dogecoin (DOGE) had been following a descending trend in monthly terms and the market capitalization shrunk by half since the early November hype, when Twitter was acquired by Elon ‘The Dogefather’ Musk. However, the Japanese guard dog-themed memecurrency surpassed Coinbase by total market capitalization thus strengthening the TOP 10 presence.

The Wait Continues For SHIB

On the other hand, rival dog-themed memecoin Shiba Inu (SHIB) also gathered a fair amount of social mentions on Crypto Twitter. Despite sliding by two positions in the crypto charts, the super popular canine coin Shiba Inu (SHIB) is the top held asset by TOP 1000 largest Ethereum (ETH) whales.

Shytoshi Kusama: “Shibarium Is Near”

Meanwhile, the wide and active Shiba Inu (SHIB) community keeps looking for Shibarium clues. Indeed, Shytoshi Kusama said on Discord that “Shibarium is near” and the beta phase is ready for launch. Of course, it’s natural that the mysterious leader of Shiba Inu (SHIB) developer team, Shytoshi Kusama, was asked the question “Wen Shibarium” repeatedly and some members of the SHIB Army expressed their discontentment.

The last incident was the misleading countdown, for which the cryptic lead coder of Shiba Inu Ecosystem later apologized. Firing back at the impatient ones on a regular basis, Mr. Kusama changed his profile bio once again. ‘Alone’ – his description reveals, while the location is the Hanukkah candle emoji.


Possibly taking a break from the fuss, Shytoshi Kusama’s spiritual holiday comes with support from the friendly Shiba Inu (SHIB) community. “Sir you’re not alone, entire #SHIBARMY is with you”, – replied a number of crypto enthusiasts, while popular crypto influencer SHIB Dream added:

"Needs to be said. ShytoshiKusama, you are not alone. You have so many in the $SHIB Family that are inspired by you.”

On the Flipside

  • The Shiba Inu (SHIB) burn rate is in monthly lows.
  • For instance, only slightly over $3M SHIB tokens were set aflame in the last 24 hours.
  • The lack of motivation for SHIB holders to burn the canine token mostly stems from the delays in upgrades.
  • However, some crypto enthusiasts argue that the canine crypto should be blazed in billions in order to have an effect on SHIB market price.
