Recently, the meme coin SHIB has been rolling uphill in a bullish trend that began Thursday amid strong buying pressures while Bitcoin struggled to stay afloat the $48k price levels.
Shiba Inu is an Ethereum-based cryptocurrency that mimics Dogecoin, a meme cryptocurrency. Elon Musk’s cryptic endorsements of the Shiba Inu token boosted the token’s popularity.
Reason behind SHIB boost
Elon Musk, the world’s most influential billionaire in the crypto world, earlier tweeted about the arrival of a new Shiba Inu puppy called Floki, which boosted Shiba Inu.
The announcement awaken a slight boost in the fast-rising crypto, further continuing Musk’s influence on tokens featuring dogs, such as Dogecoin (DOGE), BabyDoge and Floki Inu.
Shiba Inu’s future success hinges on adoption, not utility. In the same way that Dogecoin grew its community by attracting thousands of traders, SHIB aims to grow its community by attracting hundreds of traders. This technique has led Shiba Inu to launch its own decentralized exchange, ShibaSwap, based on its popularity.
To boost investment demand for SHIB, ShibaSwap burned about $25,000 worth of tokens in mid-August, nairametric revealed.
Half of the token’s supply was gifted to Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin. In the end, he donated much of the money (about $6.7 billion) to a COVID-19 charity in India after burning some of it to a dead wallet.
