The parody altcoin Dogecoin grabbed attention earlier in the year as it made big gains in the crypto market. Now, another altcoin, called Shiba Inu, has the attention of traders.
Shiba Inu launched in August 2020. It has grown by more than 70,000,000% in the past year and 960% just this past month, according to. The coin reached a record high of $0.000086 Wednesday afternoon and currently sits at $0.000073 as of Wednesday, up from $0.0000000001 from last October. This gives the altcoin a $30 billion market cap, making it No. 11 on the CoinMarketCap’s list. It’s right behind Dogecoin at $31 billion.
Shiba Inu’s rise in value is partly due to a rumor of it being available to trade on the investing app. A Change.org petition requesting Shiba Inu to be added to the app currently has more than 360,000 signatures.
Robinhood tweeted on Oct. 19 that it had no announcement regarding adding the coin.
