At the time of writing, dogecoin was trading at $0.085, up more than 21% over the past seven days, according to CoinGecko. Tuesday’s price move comes as dog-themed memecoins have rallied over the past week, with some jumping more than 28%.

Shiba inu is up 29.66% over the past week, trading hands for $0.0000157 at the time of writing. Elsewhere baby doge coin is up 19.1% in the same period, while dogelon mars rose a modest 7.9%.
