Welcoming $SHIB to Zengo

Shiba Inu tokens (SHIB) are an Ethereum-based ERC-20 token created as a direct competitor to Dogecoin.

Originally welcomed as a memecoin, SHIB has grown a lot from its early days, and there is serious money, development, and focus on the growing ecosystem.

The devoted fanbase, affectionately known as the SHIB Army, has helped rocket SHIB from relative obscurity to the 11th largest cryptocurrency as of this writing: As an ecosystem, it is currently valued at about $28 billion dollars!

ZenGo’s very own Shiba Inu

The official SHIB Twitter account has almost 2 million followers, nearly double the followers as Solana and Cardano, and on its way to outpacing Dogecoin’s 2.5 million.

SHIB’s developer community is committed to making it more than the latest memecoin. In July 2021, the community launched Shibaswap, a peer-to-peer platform that allows SHIB token holders to trade, stake, and even earn interest on their tokens.

Large companies are starting to accept the Shiba Inu Coin, too; U.S. movie theater chain AMC recently announced it will accept SHIB as a payment (see below).
