Shiba Inu (SHIB) is a community-led cryptocurrency meme coin that shocked the world. From its humble beginnings, SHIB has overcome plenty of fear, uncertainty and doubt to become a financial phenomenon and a cultural icon for thousands of crypto enthusiasts.
Despite beginning it’s life as a quiet puppy amongst dozens of Dogecoin (DOGE) doppelgangers, Shiba Inu has defied all the odds to become a thriving cryptocurrency ecosystem with one of the most passionate communities the space has even seen.
Born from the mysterious mind of Ryoshi, SHIB’s enigmatic founder, Shiba Inu was unleashed upon the Ethereum network with a rebellious spirit and a grand vision. It wasn’t just about creating another cryptocurrency; it was about establishing a decentralized community, governed by no one and open to everyone.
When Ryoshi vanished, it looked as though Shiba Inu had lost it teeth. However, the SHIB Army wasted no time in getting the project back on its feet. Led by Shytoshi Kusama, another mystical anonymous figure in the Shiba pantheon, Shiba Inu rallied and built out a swathe of tools that put other meme coins to shame.
While most meme coins fizzle without leaving any lasting impact on the blockchain world, Shiba Inu has continually shocked its detractors by delivering genuine products enjoyed by thousands of cryptocurrency users. Here’s how Shiba Inu separates itself from its weaker canine rivals:
Make no mistake, Shiba Inu has a bite to match its bark. Led by Shytoshi Kusama, the SHIB Army is just getting started.
Launched in the midst of the DeFi summer of 2020, Shiba Inu made its debut on the Ethereum network with a mere $3,000 worth of liquidity on Uniswap. There were no venture capitalists, no pre-sales, and no grandiose marketing campaigns. It was a grassroots movement, a coin for the people, by the people. Trading at an almost negligible price, SHIB was the epitome of a high-risk, high-reward asset.
Fast-forward to 2021, and the winds of change began to howl. Driven by bull market hype, SHIB started its historic ascent. In May, just when pure euphoria kicked in and SHIB exploded to new heights, it’s mysterious founder Ryoshi vanished, prompting SHIB fudsters to declare the project yet another tombstone in the graveyard of crypto memecoins.
Not to be undone, Shytoshi Kusama steadied the ship and reset it’s course. By November, it had not only given early investors 1,000x returns and shattered all expectations, SHIB broke into the top 15 cryptocurrencies by market cap, with an all time high of $0.00008845 USD.
With Shibarium finally a reality and SHIB: The Metaverse just around the corner, the Shiba Inu era might just be beginning…
