What is Shiba Inu?

     The Shiba Inu Cryptocurrency is a token based on the Ethereum network that uses the image of a Shiba Inu dog as its symbol. It was created in 2020 by an anonymous person named Ryoshi, who wanted to compete with Dogecoin, another cryptocurrency inspired by a dog meme of the same breed.

     Shiba Inu calls itself the "Dogecoin Destroyer" and has a fan community called SHIBArmy. Shiba Inu has a total supply of 1 quadrillion tokens, of which 50% were locked on the Uniswap platform and 50% were burned by Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin.

     Shiba Inu is also developing its own ecosystem called ShibaSwap, which includes two other tokens: LEASH and BONE. LEASH is a limited supply token of 107,646 units that offers incentives and rewards on ShibaSwap.

     BONE is a governance token that allows users to vote on proposals for the project. Shiba Inu also supports dog-inspired artists and Shiba Inu dog rescue institutions.

Is it worth buying Shiba?

     Buying a Shiba Inu is a personal decision that depends on several factors, such as your risk profile, your investment horizon, your knowledge of the project and the cryptocurrency market, among others. We cannot make an investment recommendation, but we can provide you with tips on Financial Education.

     Shiba Inu also faces some challenges and risks, such as high market volatility, competition from other cryptocurrencies, uncertain regulation, technical issues, fraud and scams, among many others.

     Furthermore, Shiba Inu has a very large supply of tokens, which may limit its upside potential. Therefore, it is important to be aware of the news and events that may affect the project and its price.

     Many investors (or speculators) believe in "token burning" to drive the price of Shiba up, but the amount of tokens issued is so large that this will have little effect on the price of the cryptocurrency. So be careful what you read out there.

     According to some web sources, shiba inu price prediction varies greatly depending on the methods and scenarios used. Some sites are more optimistic and others are more pessimistic, which is why it is important to do your own analysis and expose yourself little to the asset if you want to buy.
