SAFEMOON was on the fifth spot in CoinMarketCap’s list of trending cryptocurrencies at press time. The cryptocurrency traded 5.61% higher at $0.000003188 at press time. Against Bitcoin BTC/USD, SAFEMOON rose 1.92%.
SHIBA INU SHIB/USD: SHIB is styled as a so-called “Dogecoin killer.” A notable difference between the rallies that have fueled both DOGE and SHIB is the crowd supporting the respective meme coins. SHIB is fueled by Chinese social media influencers on platforms such as Weibo and WeChat, while DOGE finds backers on Twitter Inc’s TWTR social media platform and Reddit.
SHIB’s most recent boost came on Friday after Musk disclosed that his Shiba Inu dog will be named Floki. A new cryptocurrency called Floki also skyrocketed after the announcement.
At press time over 24 hours, SHIB traded 6.26% higher at $0.000007801. The meme coin is up 1.83% over a seven-day trailing period. FLOKI traded 46.4% higher at press time against Wrapped Ether WETH/USD.
Internet Computer ICP/USD: ICP is a token of a cloud computing project built initially by DFINITY. The token only listed on CoinMarketCap last month but emerged as a top coin in terms of market capitalization. The project aims to extend the functionality of the internet so as to allow it to host backend software, as per DFINITY. This pitches the project against cloud bigwigs such as Amazon.com, Inc AMZN and Microsoft Corporation MSFT.
ICP was the top gainer at press time on Monday on CoinMarketCap’s list. The coin traded 45.37% higher at $43.94 at press time. It also figured on Stocktwits list of ten top trending streams at the seventh place.
