Dogecoin was introduced in 2013 with an idea for a cryptocurrency that would appeal to a wider demographic than just Bitcoin users. Developers used a well-known dog meme as inspiration to inject humor and playfulness into Dogecoin.

Notably, Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, has expressed his affinity for Dogecoin through multiple tweets, further adding to its popularity.

As of writing, Dogecoin (DOGE) is the largest meme coin on the market by market cap. It also holds the 8th position by market cap in the overall crypto space.

DOGE saw an extreme surge in May 2021, hitting an all-time high price of $0.7376 on May 8, 2021. Musk’s tweets about DOGE played an irreplaceable role in making DOGE a household cryptocurrency.

Pepe overview

Launched into the market on April 16, 2023, Pepe is an Etherum-based meme coin. It has grown to become the third most valuable meme coin on the market.

Pepe was created as a tribute to Pepe, the Frog meme, which was popular in the early 2000s. The project’s objective is to boost the popularity of meme coins like Dogecoins and Shiba Inu.

Its initial surge made it hit a remarkable milestone of $1.6 billion in market cap. However, Pepe is in a downtrend for a month now while being one of the most trending coins on the market.

DOGE vs PEPE: A comparative analysis

Market sentiment and events

If we compare the market sentiment of the two meme coins, the Pepe coin wins this battle. Since its launch into the market, Pepe has been trending on CoinMarketCap and Twitter much more often than Dogecoin. The Frog meme coin has also gained significant media coverage, fueling its spotlight in the market.

Furthermore, despite having a much smaller market cap than Dogecoin, Pepe coin’s trading volume has consistently matched that of Dogecoin. This demonstrates that Pepe’s market engagement has been fairly high over recent months.

However, the crypto market vibrated quite intensely following the SEC’s lawsuit against Binance, the world’s largest crypto exchange. This has had an impact on the overall crypto market, with Pepe suffering more than Dogecoin.

Following the lawsuit, Robinhood, a renowned crypto-supported exchange, announced to delist Polygon (MATIC), Solana (SOL), and Cardano (ADA). This further fueled the overall crypto crash.

For now, it is quite uncertain to speculate on the recovery of the market to be very soon. However, once the market restores its green status, it is likely that Pepe will outperform Dogecoin.

As per CoinGecko’s recent tweet, Pepe is the most trending coin in early June, and Dogecoin is not even on the list. This signifies that the market movements for Pepe will likely be higher throughout the month and it will probably show quick price fluctuations, necessitating investors to always keep an eye on it.


As of writing, Dogecoin is trading in the red. Indeed, DOGE has been in a long-term downward trend. In the context of its past 30-day statistics, it reached a high of $0.07531 and is currently trading at $0.06884, representing an 8.5% decrease.

Like DOGE, Pepe is also trading in the red with the current price of $0.000001166. It is still 43.2% down since its past 30-day high of $0.000002055.

Although it seems that Pepe is losing this battle against Dogecoin, it should be remembered that the former is showing much more volatility, leading to a steep hike and down in its price. So, it would not be wrong to expect that Pepe will rise again rapidly.

In contrast, the Dogecoin chart is in a steady downtrend and is not likely to rise significantly until another exhilarating news or Tweet from Elon Musk or other supportive celebrities circulates.

The technical aspect of DOGE and PEPE

From a very simple technical perspective, let’s analyze the price trend of both meme coins.

DOGE’s 1-day chart shows a downtrend and it looks to continue for a few more days. The EMA 9 is below EMA 21 and EMA 55 for a considerable number of days and it still tends to be in the same status, indicating a downtrend in the upcoming few days as well.

Meme coins are driven by hype in the market and the hype of Pepe is undoubtedly higher than that of Dogecoin. This also supports our analysis and indicates that Pepe will likely shine this month.
