PEPE vs SHIB vs DOGE – who’s winning the meme battle?
- PEPE’s supply on exchanges increased while its supply outside of exchanges declined.
- SHIB, however, registered a price uptick of more than 4% in the last 24 hours.
The latest altcoin bull rally seemed to have come to an end already, as most cryptos’ daily charts were in the red at press time. Pepe [PEPE] was also a victim of the latest price decline, as its declining value nullified last week’s gains.

PEPE bears are taking over
After a comfortable bull rally, the good days for investors came to an end as the bears took over. As per CoinMarketCap, PEPE’s price declined by over 8% in the last 24 hours. At the time of writing, the memecoin was trading at $0.000001623 with a market capitalization of over $635 million.
To add to the disaster, Lookonchain’s tweet revealed that investors have already started to sell their holdings. As per the tweet, whale 0xa54d deposited 3.94 trillion PEPE, worth $7 million, to Binance to make a profit of around $650k.

A similar trend of sell-offs was also noted on Santiment’s chart. PEPE’s supply on exchanges increased while its supply outside of exchanges declined, suggesting high selling pressure.
Additionally, the memecoin’s exchange inflow spiked while its price started to decline, which was a bearish signal. Interestingly, whale activity remained high during the entire episode. Despite the hike in selling pressure, the total number of holders continued to rise.
The declining price trend might continue for longer as the memecoin’s 1-day price volatility registered an uptick. After a spike, PEPE’s MVRV Ratio also went down, further increasing the chances of a continued downtrend in the days to follow.
