DOGE Tapped an All-Time High a Year Ago Today, Meme Coin Value Is Down 82% Since That Point
Meme coin assets are down this week following the rest of the crypto economy’s downward spiral. Statistics show that dogecoin (DOGE) has shed 14% in value during the past month and 30 day stats show shiba inu (SHIB) is down 24%.
In the last day alone, the $28.3 billion worth of meme tokens lost 4.8% in value. DOGE lost 1.7% over the last seven days and this week SHIB has dropped by 6.8%. DOGE is also down 82.8% from the crypto asset’s all-time high on May 8, 2021, which was exactly a year ago today.

Both DOGE and SHIB make up most of the $28.3 billion meme token market capitalization by representing 95% with a combined market valuation of around $26.9 billion today.

Poodl token (POODL) is up 34.2% and dogefi (DOGEFI) is up 27.3% during the past seven days.

SHIB hit a 100 in October and GT data shows the search term “SHIB” has scored a four this week, according to worldwide statistics.
