The week kicked off with both DOGE and SHIB registering minor market cap rises. However, this exuberance was swiftly met with a broader downturn as the entire crypto market experienced a decline of over 1.6%, wiping out a staggering $18 billion in total capitalization.

Interestingly, before this flush came, Santiment warned that such high levels of social buzz could signal localized highs, and it turned out that way.

The Shiba Inu token was hit harder, printing a significant red candle and falling by 4.3%, pushing it into the red zone. In the other corner, despite the tumultuous market conditions, DOGE managed to remain in the green, trading at a modest 3% above the day's opening price.
