Has The Popularity of Shiba Inu Has Grown Beyond Bitcoin or Ethereum?

Published

on

Shiba Inu gained mainstream attention when it received Elon Musk’s mention. In no time price rallied gigantically, later also suffered extreme loss too. The SHIB price remained almost stagnant until the very recent bull run. The 1000% rally, killing a zero from the price led the crypto market on fire. Many believe, the meme coin would also drop at the same pace but it’s standing above strong support levels. And hence indicates the price may resume with its bull run soon.

 

With the sudden surge in SHIB price since the start of Q4, a huge amount of traders experiencing a FOMO just jumped in. The volume rose like never before, surpassing the volume of popular altcoins like Ethereum, Cardano etc. And very soon, the meme coin became the talk of the town. However, despite the silent trend, currently, the volume remains above $5 billion at the press time.

The most popular meme token gained immense attention and adoption in a very short period of time. Many whales jumped in and acquired a gigantic part of the circulating supply worth billions. Also, the Shiba Inu token was among the top 3 most searched queries on Google and hence, this may be the reason, many exchanges use Shiba Inu to promote themselves. After Coinbase and Robinhood, Kraken attempts to grab the ShibArmy’s attention.

An eye-catching tweet from Kraken again woke up the ShibArmy who just followed the path led by the exchange. The tweet said that Crypto Platform product lead, Brian Hoffman, said that if the post will get 2000 likes, then SHIB will be listed on Kraken. However, the tweet also specifies that the product lead thinks this may not happen. And very soon, within 15 min, the tweet crossed 2K likes and stands at 56.5K likes at the press time.

The question that arises is, why do most of the exchanges use Shiba Inu for the promotion of their respective platforms? 

Despite the fact that therein is so official announcement from Kraken, yet the rounds of the listing is making huge noise in the crypto space. No doubt the SHIB price is not able to make gigantic moves, yet it’s comfortably sustaining above $0.00007000 levels. Therefore, manifesting its tendency to range high in order to gulp another zero.

Dogecoin Killer Shiba Inu to Start Trading on Bitstamp

Published

on

Despite snubbing Dogecoin earlier this year, Bitstamp has now listed rival Shiba Inu.

Bitstamp, one of the longest-standing cryptocurrency trading platforms in the world, has listed Shiba Inu (SHIB) in what appears to be one of the most significant endorsements for the meme coin to date.

Deposits and withdrawals have already been opened, with trading kicking off on Dec. 9 at 8:00 a.m. UTC.

Apart from Shiba Inu, Perpetual Protocol (PERP), dYdX (DYDX) and Gala (GALA) have also been added to Bitstamp.

It is worth mentioning that the aforementioned cryptocurrencies will not be available in the U.S. and Singapore for now.

As reported by U.Today, Bitstamp also listed Cardano (ADA) in late November.

Quality over quantity

Bitstamp, which was launched all the way back in 2011 as a European alternative to the now-defunct Mt. Gox exchange, is known for its strong emphasis on regulatory compliance.

Sticking to its conservative listing policies, the Luxemburg-headquartered exchange chose to ignore Dogecoin despite the immense retail interest that pushed the price of the original meme coin through the roof in early 2021.

Bitstamp CEO Julian Sawyer commented on the snub in September, claiming that the exchange chooses quality over quantity. He took issue with centibillionaire Elon Musk’s influence on Dogecoin’s price action:

The issue is that if you go to some that are hyped up by a billionaire’s tweet, or crashes on a billionaire’s tweet, we don’t think that’s right.

Bitstamp remains the largest European exchange by trading volume.
