Shiba Inu (SHIB) has made headlines across multiple media outlets following the impressive spike in its market valuation over the recent weeks. To that extent, some of the early investors have quietly turned millionaires, and today, a new report from Independence confirmed one investor has retired from his warehouse work after netting at least a million in profit.
Shiba Inu is making millionaires
According to the report, the warehouse worker, who goes by the name “Rob” for anonymity, invested £6,000 (approximately $8,103) after reading the Shiba Inu “woofpaper” whitepaper, which was reportedly released in August last year. Rob said he believed the descriptions of the meme cryptocurrency as written in the whitepaper.
“After reading that, I was hooked. I just believed the words,” Rob admitted.
The price of Shiba Inu has risen by 3,321,058.4% since the time of launch and more than 700,000% since the beginning of the year. During the time of writing, the meme cryptocurrency was trading around $0.000053 per CoinMarketCap, and as the 11th largest digital currency, with a market capitalization of more than $28 billion.
SHIB on the spotlight
Following this recent increase in SHIB, Rob’s investment reportedly netted him over a million, enabling him to retire from the warehouse manager position as a millionaire at the age of 35.
“I come from quite a poor background. I could never have even fantasized about having this much money,” Rob added.
Previously, an early SHIB investor reportedly gained about $5 billion from an $8,000 investment made during the early days of the meme cryptocurrency. This impressive gain is one factor driving more investors to the SHIB market; thus, making the community euphoric and stronger. At the moment, the community is focused on getting the crypto listed on Robinhood.

Meme coin Shiba Inu is determined to prove its dominance in the space and it has done so successfully, so far anyway. From being accepted as a method of payment by prominent companies such as AMC Theaters, to being the first meme coin to get a listing in South Korea, the altcoin has had a good run.

Electronics retailer Newegg just recently tweeted about its much-anticipated collaboration with Shiba Inu. As per the announcement, it will accept Shiba Inu, the second-biggest canine cryptocurrency in the market. The tweet below sheds light on the news.

It all started with just rumors where the SHIB’s community was bewildered by the #friendshib hashtag posted by the official Twitter account of the meme cryptocurrency. Rumors about Newegg adding Shiba Inu to its list of available cryptocurrency payment options started doing the rounds last week.
Indeed, this turned out to be a reality. Newegg, the leading tech-focused e-retailer in North America has become quite a name within the crypto community. At present, Newegg supports around 11 cryptocurrencies. Earlier, it even lent support to the daddy canine coin, DOGE.
Well, this news could be the catalyst required for SHIB to recover from its losses. Surprisingly, this certainly was the case. Despite trading in the red zone over the week, at press time, it surged to more than 5% in 24 hours. SHIB was trading at the $0.00003 mark, at the time of writing.
Furthermore, the flagship token has achieved some remarkable feats over a couple of weeks. Of late, it proved to be the top dog as it surpassed the one million holders milestone.
Further, the SHIB community was rather quick to celebrate the said update on Twitter. In fact, Shiba Inu has dominated social media conversations since the digital asset found its way into the limelight a couple of months ago.
