SHIB’s Advantages Over DOGE Shared by Top Bloomberg Journalist, Bitcoin Critic

Published

on

Joe Weisenthal, a Bloomberg TV and podcast host who often criticizes Bitcoin, has touched on the difference between Shiba Inu and Dogecoin in his Twitter thread, claiming that SHIB has something that DOGE does not. Here’s what he is talking about.

“DOGE is a boomer meme coin”

Weisenthal tweeted that today he dedicated his regular newsletter to Dogecoin. The red thread in it is that, according to the crypto critic from Bloomberg, DOGE has turned into a “boomer meme coin.”

He has enumerated the major advantages of SHIB that Dogecoin does not have: the coin is being developed in accordance with a fast-moving roadmap, it has its own decentralized crypto exchange and there are NFTs based on Shiba Inu and advanced capabilities for smart contracts.

Further, the Bloomberg TV host stated it is a lot cheaper to buy than DOGE. He believes that SHIB is about to flip Dogecoin in terms of position in CoinMarketCap’s top 10. At the moment, SHIB holds 11th place, preparing to take 10th place away from DOGE, he believes.

“DOGE’s low price is its USP against BTC and ETH”

Joe Weisenthal also stated that, as for Dogecoin, its low price at the moment is a major selling point compared to Bitcoin and Ethereum. The author is a Bitcoin critic, so he does not seem to take into account the more important advantages of Bitcoin beyond its price and does not believe in BTC as a store of value that is overtaking gold now for many institutional investors.

Therefore, he only compares DOGE, Bitcoin and Ethereum by price. However, he adds that the emission of DOGE is much greater than that of BTC and ETH, so cheapness here is not quite a sustainable edge.

SHIB is better than DOGE, according to Eric Wall

According to a recent tweet by Arcane Assets CIO Eric Wall, SHIB is a much better meme cryptocurrency than DOGE. This is due to the fact that SHIB is not linked to Litecoin in mining, unlike Dogecoin.

Besides, he reckons that not being inflationary by nature and being invulnerable to Elon Musk’s tweets, as has been proved recently, are also great advantages of SHIB.

On Sunday, the Tesla CEO stated that he holds no SHIB and that he prefers projects in which goods and services are produced for fellow human beings and not focused on making money at any cost. After this tweet, SHIB first plunged about 14%.

However, later the coin started going up despite this tweet and despite the fact that last week the Robinhood CEO avoided giving a direct answer to the question about the much-expected SHIB listing on the platform.

SHIB hits three all-time highs today

The expectation of this event has been spurring the coin’s massive rally recently. However, today it has flipped several consecutive all-time highs without getting listed by Robinhood. The latest historic peak reached by SHIB was $0.0000594.

Besides, the petition on Change.org that wants to require Robinhood to list Shiba Inu token has surpassed 326,000 signatures.

At press time, the second-largest meme crypto (with a $22,264,604,220 market cap) is changing hands at $0.00005673, as per data provided by CoinMarketCap.

Shiba Inu Breaks New Record by Reaching $2.3 Billion Held on Whale Addresses

Published

on

Shiba Inu whales are now holding even more coins after accumulating new funds amid the correction.

Following a 35% rally on the market, Shiba Inu whales have decided to support private traders by purchasing more than $300 million worth of coins in total in a relatively short period of time, according to WhaleStats.

Currently, Shiba Inu whales are holding more than $2.3 billion worth of tokens. Previously, the same value was at approximately $1.8 billion. The strong buying activity coming from whale addresses appeared a couple of days ago when the cryptocurrency market started to recover from a 15% correction.

Before the aforementioned events, whale-tier addresses got rid of more than $300 million worth of tokens, which was a smart move since Shiba Inu lost more than 10% of its value right after.

As usually happens after a correction, buying power slides into the market, which then leads to a swift recovery like the one that we witnessed on Shiba Inu today.

Previously, U.Today reported that the average position of SHIB whales has increased by more than 40%, which may have been the first signal of accumulation started on the largest addresses.

The current rally on the Shiba Inu market is slowly accelerating. At the beginning of the trading day, Shib was trading with a 5% premium and, for now, the token trades with more than 10% of daily growth.

In addition to strong market performance, retail traders are slowly entering SHIB, with its volume having drastically increasing to $3.6 billion, which is almost a 100% increase compared to previous trading days, when the average volume on SHIB pairs was at 12-13 trillion tokens.

It then made its official announcement with grandeur by displaying it on The Reef, the largest outdoor billboard on the planet located in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles. The massive 736-foot screen attracts 173 million impressions per week.

The online retailer also added Dogecoin in late April, but the news was announced with much less fanfare.

In July, Newegg also became the first big-name electronics retailer to accept Shiba Inu as a payment option.

The company allowed its customers to pay with Bitcoin all the way back in 2014, becoming a pioneer in terms of crypto acceptance.

Newegg’s director of brand marketing, Andrew Choi, says that crypto payments provide the company’s customers with greater flexibility:

We are always looking for ways to innovate the shopping experience on Newegg.com, and something our customers want is greater flexibility and options, including the ability to pay with a wide range of cryptocurrencies.

AMC, the number one movie theater chain in the world, became the first BitPay customer to decide to accept Shiba Inu. In mid-November, CEO Adam Aron confirmed that the new payment option would be added in early 2022.
