Data shows that DOGE addresses increased 32% over the last 10 days, while SHIB addresses increased 35% over the same period.
Santiment noted that address activity for both these coins had hit a seven-week high as of June 30.
The increase in network activity is despite the meme coins trading 85% below their all-time highs. As per data from Benzinga Pro, SHIB was trading at $0.00001009 at press time, 88% lower than its peak price. Meanwhile, DOGE was trading at $0.065, 91% below its all-time high.

Industry watchers believe that the next cycle of cryptocurrency will be devoid of any meme coin hype, and as such, these assets will be non-existent over the next few years.
In May, a panel of fintech specialists predicted the death of SHIB by the year 2030. Last week, Dogecoin co-founder Billy Markus expressed a similar sentiment, telling his followers that DOGE may never hit $0.74 again.
