Bonk leads Shiba Inu in trading volume

Data from CoinMarketCap showed that Shiba Inu [SHIB]  and Bonk [BONK] have experienced an uptick in trading volume over the past 24 hours. As of the current data, BONK’s volume has risen by over 13%, while SHIB’s has increased by over 14% during this period.

Interestingly, despite SHIB registering a higher percentage increase in the last 24 hours, BONK has demonstrated a higher overall trading volume.
