What is Shiba Inu Token (SHIB)?

SHIB is a meme coin that uses the Shiba Inu dog breed as its mascot just like DOGE. It recently shot into the limelight on the backdrop of increasing interest in its cousin DOGE and the perceived interest of TESLA CEO Elon Musk in DOGE. As well as the headline generated when Ethereum co-founder Vitalik donated the SHIB coins that were gifted to him in an Indian charity. The meme coin has gained popularity and interest from a wide range of users and investors and its community presence is growing very strong.

DOGE was created as a joke crypto to Bitcoin. Well, we can say SHIB is created as a joke crypto to DOGE making it a joke of a joke. Shiba Inu crypto is part of a horde of dog-themed tokens, which include DOGE, Alaska Inu (LAS), BabyDoge, JIND, and LASM.

Key features of the Shiba Inu token

Based on Ethereum

While DOGE is based on the same technology that powers Bitcoin, Shiba Inu coin cryptocurrency is based on Ethereum technology. It is created as a fungible token in the ERC-20 standard.

Fixed Supply

The total supply of the Shiba Inu coin is fixed at 1 quadrillion, which is still a lot of SHIB coins. Although the token cannot be classified as scarce which is key in driving up value. However, about half of the tokens are held by Vitalik who has decided to burn 90% of it.

Three tokens in the same ecosystem

The Shiba Inu ecosystem features three tokens which are SHIB, LEASH, and BONE. The Shiba Inu Crypto is the basic token and investors can buy it in thousands, millions, billions, or even trillions and keep it in their wallet. The SHIB coin is relentless in its goal to expand its reach.

We also have LEASH, which is what we can call the scarce one out of the three as its total supply is capped at 107,646. It was initially designed as a rebase token but it has since then been repurposed to achieve its full potential. The LEASH token is labeled the other end of the Shiba Inu ecosystem.

Lastly, we have BONE, which is the next leg in the journey of the Shiba Inu coin cryptocurrency. It will mark the launch of the SHIB Defi ecosystem and it will require users to stake their SHIB token to dig for the BONE token.

SHIB token

As of October 5, 2021, the Shiba Inu crypto is trading at $0.00001835 with a daily trading volume of $10,564,490,197. The market cap is currently $7,114,792,944 and it is ranked number 26 on CoinMarketCap. It has a verified circulating supply of 394,796.00B SHIB coins. The total supply is capped at 1 quadrillion, which means there can never be more than that in circulation. Report has it that the Ryoshi locked half of the total supply away and destroyed the key. While a huge chunk was also sent to Ethereum co-founder Vitalik.

Vitalik was also reported to have burned about 90% of the tribute sent to him as well as sending some to a charity organization in India to help cushion the effect of Covid-19. Unlike DOGE, the tokenomics for the Shiba Inu coin is more complex as a portion of the coin is burned every time an investor buys SHIB. This will eventually make the coin scarce over time. You can also earn the BONE token on the Shiba Inu platform by staking your Shiba Inu crypto.

Community

Since the Shiba Inu coin cryptocurrency was launched in 2020, it has amassed a strong following in the crypto market. This is evident in the way the token has been able to break into the top 30 tokens in the world according to CoinMarketCap. It has a strong online presence on social media too.

Why are meme coins worth considering?

Meme coins as the name indicates start as a joke, which nobody thought will ever be taken seriously. As it turns out, that assumption was wrong and now investors believe they are not to be joked with in terms of return on investment. So, are meme tokens like the Shiba Inu coin worth considering for your portfolio? Is Shiba Inu a good investment?

Well, meme coins have turned out to be a good source of short-term profit for most investors. The way they are able to gain popularity in such a short time due to rigorous drive by retail investors and influencers ensures you can make a short-term profit. However, the feasibility of long-term profit is not yet clear as meme coins are based mostly on a speculative drive.

The highly volatile nature of the coins also means you can easily lose your investment if care is not taken. There are tons of meme coins with CoinMarketCap reporting that we have over 5000 of them. These coins tend to pump big and dip big giving you an insane margin of loss and profit.

Only careful and precise planning can ensure you gain and make a quick ROI, as you have to know when to buy and sell at the right time.
