WHAT IS THE SHIBA INU COIN?
Shibu Inu are cryptocurrency tokens and allow users to hold trillions of them, according to its website.
Shiba tokens are listed and incentivized on ShibaSwap, its own decentralized exchange.
The tokens feature the same Shiba Inu dog as Dogecoin, which has rocketed in popularity recently.
Susannah Streeter, senior investment and markets analyst at Hargreaves Lansdown, told The Sun previously: “The Shiba Inu coin appears to have been created just to give Dogecoin a run for its money.
“It features the same dog which became a meme, and aims to replicate Dogecoin’s success of turning a joke into a money making machine.”
This is something to be aware of when you’re considering its legitimacy when making an investment.
The Shiba token website said: “Nicknamed the DOGECOIN KILLER, this ERC-20 ONLY token can remain well under a penny and still outpace Dogecoin in a small amount of time (relatively speaking).”
