Shiba Inu maintained its upside stance after surpassing Avalanche (AVAX) to rank among the top ten cryptos by value.

Meanwhile, the memecoin sector flourished over the past day. The 8th-ranked Dogecoin saw a slight 2.5% surge over the past day.

Dogwifhat gained 21%, with BOME and BONK among the meme assets that saw double-digit gains.

Meanwhile, PEPE loses momentum as investor confidence fades, down 1.51% on its daily chart.

The market cap of all meme coins increased by 10% over the past 24 hours, nearing the $70 billion mark.

Cardano’s dire state

Cardano’s current outlook displays struggle, with ADA failing to retain its bullish pace after a recent dip beneath the 50-EMA.

ADA was among the tokens with poor performance during the ongoing bull rally, failing to overcome the 200-EMA.

Negative developments such as zombie allegations dented Cardano’s sentiment.

A modest 1.59% gain over the past day places ADA’s price at $0.4615. However, massive resistance from 50-EMA, 100-EMA, and 200-EMA suggests downside continuation.
