  • All non-stablecoin top 10 cryptocurrencies have experienced growth, some reaching triple digits.
  • Meme-based cryptocurrencies have dominated the charts.
  • Analysts have warned of a potential market correction despite the bullish sentiment.

The cryptocurrency market has seen significant movement in the top 10 rankings this week, with several newcomers and impressive gains. This follows a period of explosive growth, with all non-stablecoin cryptocurrencies in the top 10 experiencing gains and some even reaching triple digits.

Shiba Inu Blasts into the Top 10

Leading the charge is Shiba Inu, a newcomer to the top 10 list. This meme-based cryptocurrency saw a massive 130% gain in market capitalization, surpassing established names like Chainlink, Polkadot, and Tron. Fellow memecoin Dogecoin followed closely behind with a 64% gain.

While the overall sentiment remains optimistic, some analysts are concerned about potential overheating. The fear and greed index, a measure of market sentiment, indicates an overheated market, and some technical indicators also suggest the potential for a correction.


Despite these concerns, most of the top 10 cryptocurrencies experienced significant growth this week. BNB and Tron exhibited the smallest gains at 7.55% and 2%, respectively, while others like Solana, Cardano, and Bitcoin saw gains exceeding 20%. Rounding out the top 10 were Avalanche, XRP, and Ethereum, all registering impressive double-digit surges.

On the Flipside

  • These meme-based cryptocurrencies are known for their extreme price fluctuations, making them risky investments for some.
  • Despite this week’s gains, the cryptocurrency market is still known for its volatility, and future price movements are uncertain.

This widespread bullish trend signifies a potentially prosperous period for the crypto market.
