Analyst Says Shiba Inu (SHIB) Is Impossible to Overlook. Here’s why

Asiwaju Lerry, a crypto analyst with teeming followers on X, recently highlighted the growing influence of meme coins like Shiba Inu (SHIB), Dogecoin (DOGE), FLOKI, and BONK. Lerry’s statement underscores the undeniable presence of these meme coins within the broader crypto landscape, prompting investors to consider their potential impact.

The four meme coins mentioned by Lerry share a common theme – their branding revolves around dog imagery. Interestingly, all four have surpassed a billion-dollar market capitalization, a metric indicating their overall value within the crypto market. Dogecoin, the leader of the pack, boasts an impressive $21.37 billion market cap.

Shiba Inu follows closely behind at $14.06 billion, solidifying its position as the second-largest memecoin. Floki and Bonk hold the fifth and sixth spots, respectively, with valuations of $2.8 billion and $1.92 billion.

This sustained investor interest in meme coins is further fueled by the activity of large investors, often referred to as “whales.” These whales can significantly impact the market by moving substantial amounts of cryptocurrency. Last month, crypto analyst Ali Martinez revealed that large investors transferred a staggering 4 trillion SHIB to exchanges within two weeks.

Additionally, Lookonchain, a blockchain analytics platform, revealed that nine wallets, two of which belonged to whales, collectively acquired a significant amount of SHIB tokens (1.35 trillion) in a mere twelve hours, representing an investment of $35.2 million.

More recently, on June 5th, a whale on the Ethereum blockchain made a noteworthy purchase of 715.9 billion SHIB, valued at $18.44 million. These significant transactions highlight the growing enthusiasm surrounding meme coins, particularly Shiba Inu.

Shiba Inu (SHIB) Stands Out from the Crowd

Lerry’s recognition of Shiba Inu’s prominence is echoed by other prominent figures in the crypto space. Just recently, Ethereum researcher Justin Drake commented on Shiba Inu’s quality and market dominance.

In his analysis, Drake emphasized that Shiba Inu stands out from the multitude of meme coins, especially those launched on the Solana blockchain, due to its superior quality. He pointed out the illogical comparison of the combined market capitalization of all Solana-based meme coins (approximately $10 billion) to the singular value of Shiba Inu, which sits at $15 billion (before a recent market downturn).

The rise of Shiba Inu and other meme coins presents a fascinating development within the cryptocurrency market. While their origin may lie in internet memes, these tokens have garnered considerable investor interest and continue to hold influence.


The significant investment activity by whales and the recognition from crypto experts suggest that Shiba Inu, in particular, may have a more substantial role in the evolving crypto landscape.
