Internet joke cryptocurrencies (memes) were among the first debutants of this year’s bull run. Famous names like Elon Musk and Mark Cuban helped the Dogecoin (DOGE) price surge. The success of the DOGE coin led to the emergence of other dog-themed “meme” coins.
This week, the price of Shiba Inu (SHIB) hit triple-digit gains and took action once again when DOGE rose. The sudden movement of the price of Bitcoin (BTC) above the $ 55,000 level has signaled that “meme” tokens will rise.
Aside from the recent Bitcoin boom and protocol-specific announcements, it appears that the recovery of “meme” coins has started after Elon Musk shared a picture of a Shiba Inu puppy.

The Shiba Inu community is also paying special attention due to the upcoming Shiboshi NFT of the protocol.
SHIB may have had the highest percentage gain, but DOGE is still the top dog-themed coin with the longest reach and market cap of $ 33.26 billion.
