Shiba Inu ranks 12th among cryptocurrencies, beats Ethereum-killers and Chainlink
Shiba Inu, a memecoin created anonymously by Ryoshi in August 2020, is now trending as the most traded cryptocurrency across top exchanges. The three tokens SHIB, BONE and LEASH from Shiba Inu’s ecosystem have observed a spike in demand over the past two weeks.
The launch of Shiba Inu’s decentralized exchange platform ShibaSwap and implementation of the “burn mechanism” triggered a rally in the memecoin’s price. The memecoin currently ranks 12th in market capitalization on CoinGecko, the world’s largest independent crypto data aggregator.
Several developments in the SHIB ecosystem have contributed to the ongoing rally. The key factors are the implementation of the burn mechanism, the announcement of the launch of 10,000 Shiboshis on ShibaSwap and the rise in the number of token holders.
Analysts have compared SHIB’s ongoing rally to DOGE’s run to its all-time high. @HsakaTrades, a pseudonymous cryptocurrency analyst, recently tweeted,

As Shiba Inu prepares to venture into gaming, holders are expecting a boost in its demand. To begin with, SHIB was facing two key challenges – a lack of liquidity and a lack of ecosystem updates.
With its recent listing on Coinbase, SHIB has overcome the challenge of liquidity to a large extent, seeing how its daily trade volume exceeds $15 billion.
