However, beyond the hype, how does SHIB compare to other meme coins such as PEPE and DOGE? PEPE is the newly hyped memecoin in the crypto market. With the token doing over 20x since its creation, it has attracted many traders and investors. Dogecoin (DOGE), on the other hand, is known as Elon Musk’s favorite.

Other meme coins, such as PEPE and WOJAK, require an initial investment of $158,312 and $175,330, respectively, making them far less accessible to the average investor in 2023.
