Dogecoin 'Killer' Soars 5% To Top Meme Coin Gains: What's Driving It?

Shiba Inu SHIB/USD topped intra-day gains on Wednesday, rising 5% and beating top meme coins by market capitalization such as Dogecoin DOGE/USD and Dogelon Mars ELON/USD.

What Happened: SHIB's rally can be attributed to two major catalysts – an overall crypto market in the green with Bitcoin BTC/USD breaching the $18,000 level, and Ethereum ETH/USD touching the $1,400 mark. 

The second reason is SHIB’s recent collaboration with the Bugatti Group luxury brand, which specializes in the manufacture, marketing and selling of baggage, purses, attaché cases and accessories.
