Shiba Inu Up 250% in a 30 Days: Can it Outpace Dogecoin and Lead the Memecoin Charge?


The memecoin market is on fire, with both Dogecoin (DOGE) and Shiba Inu (SHIB) experiencing significant gains. But with the “bull season” in full swing, a question lingers: which Shiba Inu or Dogecoin will lead the pack?

Shytoshi Kusama, the lead developer behind Shiba Inu, has thrown his hat into the ring, confidently claiming SHIB will be the champion. This comes amidst a debate sparked by popular crypto exchange KuCoin, which suggested the token with the “loudest community” will prevail.

Kusama disagrees. In a recent tweet, he emphasized that a successful memecoin needs more than just vocal supporters. He listed “dedicated supporters, robust tech, a well-crafted vision, strategic partners, and effective execution” as key ingredients for a dominant memecoin. He concluded the tweet with the #SHIB hashtag, implying Shiba Inu possesses all these qualities.

This bold claim comes with some backing. Looking at recent performance, Shiba Inu has been the outperformer. According to Robinhood data, SHIB skyrocketed a staggering 154.1% in the last week, dwarfing Dogecoin’s 35.9% gain.

SHIB’s vibrant community undoubtedly plays a role in this success. Enthusiastic supporters have been instrumental in driving adoption, convincing new investors to join the SHIB movement. Furthermore, the Shiba Inu team has actively collaborated with other prominent crypto projects, fostering a sense of legitimacy and growth.

While Kusama’s prediction remains to be seen, Shiba Inu’s recent performance and strategic moves suggest it’s a serious contender in the memecoin race. Only time will tell if it can dethrone Dogecoin and become the undisputed king (or queen) of the memecoin season.
