Many people are trying to relate the rise of this coin with Elon Musk’s tweet on Saturday, which states that he is much interested in SHIBA now. Whatever the reason is, it is indeed a piece of good news for their creators because the coin is drastically increasing its value since then.
SHIB is the first token by the ShibaSwap and is more of a kind of experiment in decentralized community building. It is a token based on ERC-20 and is nicknamed ‘Dogecoin Killer’. Notably, it has locked its 50% supply to the Uniswap, and the rest is burned to Vitalik Buterin, according to its official website. The Shiba Inu aims to build the best-decentralized ecosystem globally and provide a safer place for trading valuable cryptocurrencies.
SHIB coin is definitely evolved much beyond an experiment; however, it is comparatively a new token, and indeed, it poses a more significant amount of risk. Although its price is skyrocketing for few days, investors need to be careful and do proper risk management before investing in it.
