Inu Corner: Memecoin Roundup (Sept. 16)

Popular memecoin protocols -- Dogecoin, Shiba Inu, Baby Doge Coin, Floki and Samoyedcoin -- continue to build out their core utilities.

Weekly Memecoin Progress

Memecoin projects continue to build momentum in the industry. After last week's impressive performance, the dog-themed protocols lost some ground in terms of value. However, there was some progress in developing core utilities and engagement.

Here is an overview of their development from Sept. 9 to Sept. 16:

Weekly Memecoin Performance

Dogecoin ($DOGE)

The number one memecoin by market capitalization, $DOGE, saw its market cap drop from $8.4 billion to $7.8 billion during the past week. Also, its social engagement growth rate dropped to 1.02 billion from 1.28 billion.

The popular dog-themed memecoin did not make any significant moves last week, as it prepares for the maiden Dogecoin Hackathon event:

  • In contrast with the market cap decline, the $DOGE price increased by 0.25% in the last seven days. The token is currently trading at $0.05993 with a 24-hour price dip of 0.98%.
  • The memecoin has moved further along with preparations for the Dogecoin Hackathon after partnering with MyDoge Wallet.
  • Its partnership with the self-custodian Dogecoin wallet will provide free flights and accommodations to three lucky developers attending the event.

Shiba Inu ($SHIB)

Shiba Inu -- a growing powerhouse with a Non-Fungible Token (NFT), Decentralized Exchange (DEX), GameFi and Metaverse utilities -- also experienced a decline in market capitalization last week. $SHIB market cap decreased from $7.3 billion to $6.3 billion.
