Shiba Inu Overthrows Binance USD, SHIB Leaves Innovation Zone

Shiba Inu’s market capitalization is now worth more than BUSD, the world’s top crypto platform’s stablecoin.

  • Shiba Inu reclaimed its #14 position by market cap.
  • Paxos-issued Binance stablecoin BUSD continues reduction. 
  • Binance acclaimed Shiba Inu as a high-level standard coin.

The popular Japanese guard dog-themed memecoin Shiba Inu (SHIB) is climbing up the charts once again, as SHIB flipped the stablecoin Binance USD (BUSD). The leading crypto exchange’s stablecoin dropped to #16 by global market capitalization with a $6,67bn market cap.

Also giving way to Avalanche (AVAX), BUSD has gradually decreased its market share since the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) labeled Binance’s stablecoin an unregistered security and imposed a ban for the issuer Paxos to mint more BUSD.


Shiba Inu is changing hands at $0.00001159, according to CoinGecko. Hitting an upper resistance line at $0.0000115, SHIB recorded solid gains of 5.6% in the last seven days. Even so, the monthly charts suggest a 3.4% increase, which is very slim compared to the rival canine coins, especially after DOGE skyrocketed 25% after Musk’s Twitter stunt.

Shiba Inu Growth Acknowledged by Binance

On the same note, Binance released an announcement declaring the removal of Shiba Inu, 1 inch (1INCH), Frax Share (FXS), and Trust Wallet Token (TWT) from the Innovation Zone. Ultimately, this means that these blockchain projects cleared the first hurdle in the ecosystem and meet “the high level of standard that we expect,” – the official announcement reads.

Indeed, the Shiba Inu Ecosystem has a lot going on. Shibarium, the Layer-2 scaling solution is testing ‘puppynet,’ a testnet that keeps track of average block time and uses $tBONE to conduct transactions. Recording three million wallets in three weeks, Shibarium’s mainnet is likely to be a success, but on exact launch date has been given by the developers yet.

On the Flipside

  • Shiba Inu (SHIB) benefited the least from the DOGE Twitter logo bull run, which saw Dogecoin (DOGE), Floki (FLOKI), Baby Doge Coin (BABYDOGE), and Bonk (BONK) gaining double-digits.
