Over the last two weeks, the cryptocurrency community has been focused on a meme-based cryptocurrency called baby doge (BABYDOGE).

The volume is spread across Pancakeswap versions 1&2, Xt.com, and Lbank. On Monday, the BABYDOGE market valuation is $1.2 billion after dropping from $1.925 billion a week ago. While the baby doge token has shed enormous value, the social community has nevertheless grown significantly.

The community also helped the organization Furkids Animal Rescue and Shelters obtain a new van for the shelter’s “Transfur” program. The Furkids’ van sports the BABYDOGE logo and website as well.
Baby Doge Goes to NASCAR
Following the Dogefather’s lead in NASCAR, the baby doge token team had also partnered with NASCAR racer Brandon Brown and Brandonbilt Motorsports. This past weekend in Atlanta, Brown’s car featured the babydogecoin.com domain name and the baby doge logo as well.
At the Atlanta Motor Speedway, Brown took the checkered flag from the 31st position on Saturday. Brown’s Camaro sustained “heavy right front damage” while only a handful of laps remained.
“It was a tough break for Brown as the No. 68 Chevrolet Camaro ran in and around the 10th position for the majority of the event,” Brandonbilt Motorsports said. Brandonbilt added to the statement by thanking some of its new sponsors:
“Nonetheless, we would like to thank Baby Doge Coin, The Erosion Company – TEC and Furkids Animal Rescue and Shelters for joining us this weekend for their very first NASCAR Xfinity Series race.”
The Collision Course of This Week’s Meme Coin Markets
The famous meme token dogecoin (DOGE) had entered the NASCAR scene long ago when DOGE fans decided to raise 68 million DOGE in order to sponsor Josh Wise’s Ford Fusion in 2014. The dogecoin emblazoned vehicle recently made headlines on June 19, 2021, when Stefan Parsons crashed it at the Nashville Superspeedway race. On Monday, July 12, data shows that meme-based cryptocurrencies have also crashed in value over the last week.
Shiba inu (SHIB) is down over 12% this week and dogecoin (DOGE) is down 14.6%. Baby doge’s 42.4% loss is much larger than these two but a coin called alaska inu (LAS) has lost 70% this week and jejudoge (JEJUDOGE) dropped over 60%. However, elon doge token (EDOGE) has gained over 48% this week and keanu inu (KEANU) jumped 35.4% in value.
