The token, which continues to secure listings on exchanges, is a favorite for X and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk, who reportedly had a dog that shared the name.

Analysts and traders have also observed that when cat coins run, it is usually a peak of the cycle. If there is truth to this statement, then it explains why Bitcoin price is dumping.

At the time of writing, cat-themed tokens’ market capitalization is $1.98 billion, up nearly 2% in the last 24 hours.
