The “Dogecoin killer” is stealing Bitcoin’s thunder with an eye-popping rally
According to data provided by CoinMarketCap, the daily trading volume of the Shiba Inu cryptocurrency has now eclipsed $14.5 billion.
Notably, it has surpassed Ether, which has recorded $14.3 billion worth of trading volume over the past 24 hours.
At the time of writing, Shiba Inu is the third most traded cryptocurrency overall (behind only Tether and Bitcoin).
SHIB is dominating spot cryptocurrency trading volumes on the Binance exchange. It is also the most traded digital asset on Coinbase by a big margin.
As reported by U.Today, Shiba Inu hit a new all-time earlier today for the first time since early May, capturing the attention of the cryptocurrency community. After reaching a lifetime peak of $0.00004432, it has since shed some of the gains.
In the meantime, Bitcoin recently dipped below the $60,000 level. The leading cryptocurrency has become vulnerable to a steeper correction after bulls failed to hold onto recent gains. The flagship cryptocurrency is now on track to record its first weekly drop since September.
Market analyst Ben Caselin told Bloomberg that speculation is likely to be the key reason behind Shiba Inu’s wild price action.
As of recently, the community has been abuzz with rumors about Robinhood listing Shiba Inu, which is likely to be another catalyst for the ongoing rally.
At the time of writing, SHIB is up a staggering 435% this September.
