Before we dive into more statistics and technical analysis, let’s try and understand SHIB’s history and previous trends.
What is Shiba Inu?
Shiba Inu was launched amidst the pandemic in August 2020. It was created by creators who called them ‘Ryoshi’. Whether Shiba Ina’s creators are a single person or a group of people is not known, and their anonymity is maintained to date.
The token was originally launched to the public as meme coins. Meme coins are cryptocurrencies which go under a theme. In the case of Shiba Inu, the theme is a Japanese breed of hunting dog called ‘Shiba Inu’. In the crypto market, Shiba Inu (SHIB) is widely known as a popular alternative to Dogecoin, even though Doge was launched in the year 2013. So much so that, SHIB has been dubbed as ‘the Dogecoin killer’ by the supporters of SHIB who call themselves SHIBArmy.
Shiba Inu is an altcoin and is based on Ethereum. One year after its launch, in October 2021, SHIB’s price increased and it was successful in accumulating a massive market capitalization of more than $40 billion. Over the years, its market capitalization saw a drastic sharp drop and is currently at $7.5 billion. Luckily, this has not affected SHIB’s popularity in the market. SHIB is still acknowledged among the top 10 meme coin lists.
A Quick Look at the Shiba Inu Ecosystem
The creator of Shiba Inu (SHIB) mentioned their guiding principles in a joke version of the ‘white paper’ called the “woof paper”. As per the statement, Shiba Inu was created to see what would happen if a crypto current was launched, managed, and run completely and fully by the crypto community. Ryoshi states that Shiba Inu is an experiment in the spontaneous and decentralized creation of wealth by the community. Ryoshi believes that a decentralized community collectively can build something far superior to a centralized organisation.
Thus, the project of Shiba Inu started from the ground, with nothing, and aims to create something superior out of this nothing. It was not founded by a pre-determined team or organisation, it is 1005 spontaneous and gives the entire community full freedom to run it. The supporters of Shiba Inu were also bonded with each other for their collective love of Shiba Inu dogs.
Ryoshi also states in the “woof paper” why Shiba Inu was not based on its blockchain. According to them, Ethereum is an already established and secure blockchain. It facilitates projects to be decentralized. Thus, Shiba Inu is an Ethereum based altcoin.
SHIB is Shiba Inu’s native foundational currency. It started its journey in the crypto world with a supply of 1000 trillion. 500 trillion from that was kept away by Ryoshi in a decentralized digital currency exchange platform for liquidity requirements. The remaining 500 trillion was sent to Ethereum for safekeeping.
The other two coins of Shiba Inu’s ecosystem are: the second coin in the system is called Lease or LEASH. It has a worth of only a fraction of SHIB’s total supply. The third coin is called Bone or BONE. Bone’s value lies somewhere between SHIB and LEASH in terms of market capitalisation and total supply.
