Dogecoin is a very old coin launched in 2013 as a meme coin to mock Bitcoin, ever since it has been treated as a shitcoin with no value.
Shiba Inu was launched in August 2020 as a Doge killer, when its market cap was just $117 million.
Though Dogecoin was not based on any use cases, it became popular after Elon Musk started tweeting about it and since January 2021, Doge prices have increased from $0.005 per token to $0.68 per token on 5th May 2021, which is now hovering at $0.17 per coin.
However, prices of Shiba started to increase in May 2021, when the developers announced that they have sent 500 trillion Shiba tokens to Ethereum founder, Vitalik Buterin. The price of the Shiba token on 1 April 2020 was $0.00000005 per token, which touched $0.00008 on 27 October 2021 with a market cap over $41 billion.
After this announcement, Vitalik announced that he has burned 400 trillion Shib tokens and 50 trillion he has donated to the India Crypto Fund set up to help during the COVID-19 crisis. During that period, India was witnessing a second-wave coronavirus which was first reported in China.
Since then, both dog-based tokens have been gaining traction. For a brief period, Shiba overtook Doge in market capitalization that touched $41.09 billion on 29 October 2021, against $37.97 billion of Doge.
