Dogecoin and Shiba Inu are leading a price rally in meme coins

Dogecoin and Shiba Inu are leading a rally in meme coins after recent commentary from Tesla CEO Elon Musk. Musk tweeted a picture of his Shiba Inu dog Floki and appointed him the new CEO of Twitter. 

The billionaire’s tweets garnered attention in the crypto community as it sparked an intense debate on which meme coin is represented in Musk’s tweet. Three Shiba-Inu-themed meme coins Dogecoin (DOGE), Shiba Inu (SHIB) and FLOKI are the top contenders. 

Musk’s tweet triggered a price rally in meme coin, adding as much as $500 million to DOGE’s market capitalization within a 15-minute period. This explains the impact of Musk’s comments on Shiba-Inu-themed cryptocurrencies. 

FLOKI yielded massive gains for holders overnight

FLOKI, the meme coin that derives its name from Elon Musk’s dog Floki, has yielded the highest single-day return to traders, compared to Shiba Inu and Dogecoin. FLOKI offered 42% gains to holders overnight, leading among the top three meme coin contenders.
