What Is Shiba Inu Coin?
It is said that Shiba Inu was created to answer one single question: What would happen if a cryptocurrency project was 100% run by its community? According to that community, Shiba Inu focuses on the collective power of individuals, called the ShibArmy, as a way to promote social harmony. The ShibArmy is built on the concept of “collective decentralization” that empowers and unites a community around the SHIB coin.
The project’s pseudonymous founder Ryoshi launched the SHIB token by sending 50% of all coins to Ethereum founder Vitalik Buterin and making the other 50% of tokens available for trading on the popular decentralized exchange Uniswap. On May 12, 2021, Buterin donated an estimated $1 billion dollars worth of his gifted SHIB holdings to the India Covid Relief Fund before burning ~40% of the total supply of SHIB tokens (worth about $6.6 billion at the time).
Why Buy SHIB?
To support Shiba Inu is to support the mission of the ShibArmy. Through inclusive cooperation and devotion to its mission, the community aims to attain financial independence outside of centralized control.
Beyond the community participation, the Shiba Inu project also offers mechanisms for token holders to stake their SHIB to earn additional crypto rewards, and to use it on Shiba Inu’s decentralized finance infrastructure.
