Billionaire Mark Cuban Shuts Down Dogecoin Critic

SHIB pushed back to 14th place, down 22%

Despite the constant burns of substantial amounts of SHIB and the fact that 41% of the initial quadrillion supply has been locked in an unspendable address already, the second-most popular meme cryptocurrency has by now fully retraced its October rally.

Since Jan. 2, SHIB has lost 21.34% of its value, dropping from $0.00003422 to the $0.00002642 level. By now, the token is changing hands at a slightly higher price - $0.00002693 - on the Binance exchange.

The meme cryptocurrency promoted as the "Dogecoin killer" has now been moved from 12th place on CoinMarketCap to 14th. Its market capitalization now totals $14,755,840,488.

Polygon's MATIC now holds the 13th spot and Dogecoin sits in 12th place.
