It’s been a strong week for cryptocurrency with the world’s premier crypto – Bitcoin – finally cracking the US$55,000 mark.
As Bitcoin’s fate usually trickles down to many other digital currencies on the market, there have been many which have made impressive gains throughout the week.

Let’s take a look.
Shiba Inu +218%
By far the biggest performer this week, Shiba Inu (SHIB)! has grown a whopping 218% in the past seven days.
As Shiba Inu is one of the dog-inspired memecoins, along with Floki, Baby Doge and, of course, Dogecoin, Shiba Inu benefited from tweets from Tesla billionaire and dog lover, Elon Musk.
Last Sunday, the eccentric space adventure tweeted a picture of his Shiba Inu puppy, who he named Floki, to Twitter. This resulted in a price hike for both Dogecoin and Shiba Inu marking yet another example of the influence Musk has over this niche of digital currency.
Shiba Inu currently sits at US$0.00002292 as of October 8 at 5:40 PM AEDT.
Fantom + 82%
Also making considerable gains, Fantom (FTM) has grown 82% this week, making it the second biggest grower in the past seven days.
