Shiba Inu, the self-proclaimed Dogecoin killer lived up to that title last week when its market cap crossed $38 billion. Dogecoin fell behind in the dust of Shib’s success with a market cap of $34 billion. You know what? It’s not a competition….or is it? 🌚 In this war of the woofs, will Dogecoin reclaim its spot as the 9th most relevant cryptocurrency or will it be thrown back into the doghouse? We’ll see 😅

Big Bits

Bitcoin is still leagues ahead of many cryptocurrencies this week. After briefly sinking to a low of $58,417, it quickly recovered to a high of $63,556 before settling at a sweet $61,540. Thank goodness 🕺🏾.

Ethereum is slowly but steadily inching towards a soft $5000 and it’s great but have you seen these gas prices??? 😫 These days, the average transaction on Ethereum could cost anywhere between $30 and $150 💔
