The crypto-verse is filled with constant shifts in rankings and market capitalizations. Recently, Shiba Inu [SHIB], a meme coin that started as a playful competitor to Dogecoin [DOGE], has been making significant strides. According to recent data, SHIB has surpassed Avalanche [AVAX] and Cardano [ADA] in market cap, prompting speculations about whether it could challenge Dogecoin next.

At press time, it was trading at $0.00002605 following a 6% daily drop. However, it showed a notable 3% increase over the past week and an impressive 11.59% gain in the last month. These statistics indicate a strong upward momentum for SHIB, even amidst the volatile nature of the entire market. Shiba Inu’s monthly gains can be attributed to several factors including the robust community, burn mechanisms, and increasing utility.


The Challenge to Cardano

Cardano, known for its different approach to blockchain development, has consistently held a place in the top 10. However, the recent surge of meme coins like Shiba Inu poses a significant challenge. Cardano is currently the 9th largest cryptocurrency by market cap. However, SHIB’s rapid growth suggests that it could soon rival ADA’s position more consistently.
