A look at the performance of our top five memecoin projects — Dogecoin, Shiba Inu, Baby Doge Coin, Floki, and Samoyedcoin.

Memecoin Prices Decline

In the past week, our top five memecoin protocols declined in price -- although there’s been a rally in the past 24 hours. Overall, the dog-themed projects continued innovating in the Decentralized Finance (DeFi) space.

Let's take a look at their progress during the past week as they continue to build in the bear market:

Bearish memecoin week

Dogecoin ($DOGE)

$DOGE remains the number one memecoin by market capitalization. In a bearish week, the token's market cap dropped from $8.6 billion to $7.9 billion.

  • $DOGE dropped by 9% in the past seven days. However, the token is up by 7.5% in the past 24 hours and is trading at $0.0606.
  • Amid the price decline, $DOGE embraced a new utility on Oct. 12.
  • According to billionaire supporter Elon Musk, $DOGE was accepted as a means of payment for his new product, Burnt Hair -- which is a perfume that is supposed to smell like, yep, burnt hair.
