Memecoin’s bullish surge over the past two weeks has helped the Shiba Inu

Memecoin’s bullish surge over the past two weeks has helped Shiba Inu dislodge Cardano from the top 10 cryptocurrencies by market capitalization.

Memecoin mania has seen another upward trend over the past couple of weeks, with Pepe (PEPE), Shiba Inu (SHIB), Dogwifhat (WIF) and several others hitting all-time highs (ATH). Many of these memes have dethroned several major cryptocurrencies.

Cardano (ADA), which was ranked third in the cryptocurrency rankings during the 2020-2021 bull run, is currently ranked 11th behind SHIB. Shiba Inu currently has a market cap of $16.4 billion, while Cardano has a market cap of $16.3 billion.

Cardano is trading at $0.45, 80% below its all-time high of over $3.10. While Bitcoin (BTC) and other altcoins have recovered most of their losses from the last cycle and some are creating new ATH coins, Cardano, similar to Ripple (XRP), appears stuck in a price range.

Besides SHIB, Pepe overtook Polygon (MATIC) to temporarily take 18th place as memecoin reached a new all-time high. However, within a few hours, Pepe’s price experienced a correction and fell back to 19th place. WIF, another popular and new memecoin, overtook Hedera (HBAR) to take 28th place as it regained its $4 billion market cap.

Two meme coins, Dogecoin (DOGE), with a market capitalization of $23.8 billion, and newcomer SHIB, are currently in the top 10 of our cryptocurrency rankings.

The 2021 bull cycle saw memecoin rebound at different stages. However, this bull cycle is led by a new era of meme coins that are only a year old. Pepe, WIF, Book of Meme (BOME) and other companies have posted double-digit gains over the past year.

The OG memecoin DOGE and the popular coin from the last bull run, SHIB, have also seen strong gains during this bull cycle, but they pale in comparison to newer memecoins or even their recent highs.

While Bitcoin and the majority of altcoins saw sideways price momentum, with most of them in the red, memecoins not only thrived but also reached new highs, posting double-digit gains. Six of the top ten gainers over the past 24 hours are memecoins, and the weekly charts paint a similar picture.
