What Is the Shiba Inu Coin?
The SHIB cryptocurrency is a token of the Shiba Inu ecosystem, which from the very beginning received the nickname ‘the Dogecoin killer’. In a few weeks of its existence, the SHIB price has risen by 27,000%, although its rate still does not reach even one-tenth of a cent. This is the first token to be listed on the ShibaSwap decentralized exchange after its launch.
At the end of summer 2020, SHIB was released on the Ethereum blockchain as an ERC-20 token. In total, 1 quadrillion coins were created. Half of them were transferred to the Uniswap DEX, and the keys were destroyed. The second half of the coins was transferred to the founder of Ethereum, Vitalik Buterin. The creators of the project explain this as follows:
Vitalik Buterin burned 90% of the Shiba Inu tokens that were stored in his wallet by sending them to a non-existent address. In total, Butein destroyed 410 trillion tokens worth $6.5 billion. On May 13, Buterin donated $1 billion to fight COVID-19 in India. The developer transferred 500 ETH and more than 50 trillion Shiba Inu tokens worth about $1.14 billion to the India COVID-Crypto Relief fund at the time of the transaction. Buterin also promised to donate the remaining Shiba Inu tokens for charity, but for longer-term purposes.
The Shiba Inu project intends to become a full-fledged decentralized ecosystem. The main idea of the project is to give the community 100% rights to manage the protocol. The project is similar to Dogecoin and even parodies it, but the developers of Shiba Inu declare much more serious plans. At the moment, the entire Shiba Inu ecosystem is under development, which, according to the creators of the project, will include an asset exchange, an NFT marketplace and a decentralized exchange ShibaSwap.
Several leading cryptocurrency exchanges announced the listing of a new SHIB token. According to CoinMarketCap, SHIB hit its all-time high of $0.0000388 on May 10. This happened after the crypto exchange Binance added the option to trade SHIB. On the same day, SHIB’s market capitalization hit a record high of more than $13.5 billion. However, it has weakened its position and, at the time of writing, is in 31st place with a market cap of $2.72 billion.
Now the token is trading on major exchanges: Binance, Coinbase, FTX, OKEx, and even the Indian equivalent of Binance – WazirX.
