The top meme coin traded down 4.8% against the U.S. dollar today as the cryptocurrency market carnage wreaked havoc on the entire digital currency economy. While Dogecoin has had a stellar 2021, it has lost 82.8% against the U.S. dollar over the past 12 months.
DOGE hit its all-time high a year ago today, and the value of the Meme coin has fallen 82% since then
Meme token assets fell this week as the rest of the crypto-economy spiraled downward. Statistics show that Dogecoin (DOGE) is down 14% in the past month, while 30-day statistics show that Shiba Inu (SHIB) is down 24%.
On the last day alone, the value of $28.3 billion in meme tokens fell by 4.8%. DOGE is down 1.7% over the past seven days and SHIB is down 6.8% this week. DOGE is also down 82.8% from the crypto asset’s all-time high on May 8, 2021, which was exactly one year ago today.
At the time, DOGE’s ATH reached around $0.731 per unit. Six months ago, the ATH price of SHIB was $0.00008616 per unit, and today is down 78% since that price point. DOGE and SHIB make up the majority of the $28.3 billion meme token market cap at 95%, with a combined market cap of around $26.9 billion today.
Google Trends data shows low interest in Dogecoin and SHIB
While most meme coin economies have depreciated significantly recently, a relatively unknown meme coin called litedoge (LDOGE) is up 400% this week. POODl token (POODL) is up 34.2% over the past 7 days and dogefi (DOGEFI) is up 27.3%. However, jejudoge (JEJUDOGE) is down 44.6% for the week, Let go Brandon (LETSGO) is down 43.3% and the shiba fantom is down 28.9% against the dollar.
Meme tokens were all the rage last year, but interest seems to be dwindling rapidly. After hitting a Google Trends (GT) score of 100 in May last year, this year the search phrase “dogecoin” scored 3 points in the same weekly time period. According to global statistics, SHIB reached 100 points in October, and GT data shows that the search term “SHIB” received 4 points this week.
