Coinbase, the leading American crypto exchange, has seen a major increase in trading volume. Over the last 24 hours, the exchange’s trading volume skyrocketed 82.18% to stand at $1,214,821,992, placing Coinbase 3rd in the global market behind FTX Exchange and Binance.
Popular dog-themed meme coin Shiba Inu (SHIB) had a huge influence on the increased trading volume, as 87% of users chose to buy SHIB. The strong bullish sentiment towards the meme coin may have been inspired by Shiba Inu’s recent push to remove a zero from its decimal valuation, even despite the crypto crash. Having said that, there are a multitude of other factors contributing to the crypto community’s faith in SHIB, including:
- SHIB holds the lowest price per coin among the top 20 cryptocurrencies.
- Free crypto giveaways on social media and earning apps.
- Partnerships with celebrities, e.g. designer John Richmond.
For much of the community, it comes as little surprise that Coinbase, which paved the way for small crypto transactions, has made it easy for both advanced and amateur crypto enthusiasts to hold at least a symbolic amount of the beloved Shiba Inu (SHIB).
Hark SHIB Army! Shytoshi Kusama Has Something to Say
“Today I write. Tomorrow I will have a LOT to say #Shibarmy”, stated Shytoshi Kusama, the main developer of the Shiba Inu Ecosystem, who has been teasing a major update on Twitter, mystery-box style. The update was intially expected to be posted on Medium on 4th of July, but the Lead Developer of Shiba Inu (SHIB) didn’t want to interrupt the national U.S. celebration, and elected to postpone the publication.
Shiba Inu’s (SHIB) popularity among Coinbase users is partially being driven by the huge wave of hype currently going around social media, with many crypto enthusiasts even believing the SHIB Army to be the largest crypto community in the industry. @shibtoken, the official Twitter account of Shiba Inu (SHIB), has surpassed 3.4 million followers, matching the count of rival meme coin Dogecoin (DOGE).
Nevertheless, the Shiba Inu project boasts support from a great number of social influencers, such as MILKSHAKE who has 331K followers, so it’s unsurprising that hashtags like #Shibarmy and #SHIB are constantly trending on Twitter’s top searches.
