Recent research has established that Shiba Inu has emerged as the fourth most sought-after cryptocurrency among searchers, surpassing the popularity of other well-known assets like Cardano (ADA), Litecoin (LTC), Tether (USDT), and Solana (SOL).
Highlighting the utmost significance of a resilient community and continuous user involvement within the cryptocurrency space, a comprehensive study conducted by Marketplace Fairness has illuminated the remarkable position of the Shiba Inu ecosystem.
The primary objective of this research was to uncover the most frequently queried cryptocurrencies on the widely-used search engine, Google, with Bitcoin, the most renowned crypto asset, deliberately excluded from the analysis.
Unsurprisingly, Ethereum emerged as the second most favoured Bitcoin alternative, garnering a substantial 3,260,000 monthly searches.
Ethereum’s well-deserved position as the second most recognized cryptocurrency vividly reflects the market capitalization gap between BTC and ETH. Bitcoin and Ethereum have asserted their dominance in the crypto market cap hierarchy for an entire decade, occupying the first and second spots, respectively.
As of the latest data, BTC and ETH collectively constitute 67.8% of the global crypto market cap, which currently stands at an impressive $1 trillion.
However, the recent insights offered by Marketplace Fairness underscore that market capitalization rankings don’t always perfectly mirror an asset’s popularity. For instance, XRP secured the third position as the most sought-after altcoin, boasting 1,250,000 monthly searches.
Nonetheless, this Ripple-affiliated cryptocurrency lags behind Binance Coin (BNB) and Tether (USDT) when considering the market capitalization hierarchy of the largest cryptocurrencies.
Out of a staggering array of over 23,000 digital assets in existence, Shiba Inu has managed to surpass them all, positioning itself as the fourth most frequently searched cryptocurrency.

Shiba Inu and Dogecoin Achieve Significant Success
Notably, Shiba Inu and Dogecoin both emerged as major success stories in the previous cryptocurrency bull market. Despite trading well below their 2021 peak values, these tokens continue to generate substantial interest, as per the most recent research.
Remarkably, Shiba Inu’s search metrics outperform those of Cardano (ADA) and Solana (SOL), even though the latter two boast higher market capitalizations than SHIB. Cardano garnered 677,000 searches, while Solana received 542,000 searches during the same period. In the same vein, Litecoin, Tether, and Polkadot round out the top ten positions in this crypto popularity ranking.
