    Shiba Inu (SHIB) is a crypto-currency meme token launched by an anonymous founder or group of individuals under the pseudonym Ryoshi. Shiba was first known as an alternative to Dogecoin, although it has a key difference. SHIB is built on the Ethereum blockchain, so it can run smart contracts and work with decentralized applications (DApps). Dogecoin is based on Litecoin and is limited in use.

    What is Shiba Inu

    Shiba is an ERC-20 token on Ethereum which allows developers to create ShibaSwap DEX and integrate other tokens and NFTs into ecosystem of the platform.

    Shiba’s maximum supply has been set at 1 quadrillion tokens, which is much higher than other cryptocurrencies. Due to huge issuance of coins Shiba’s price is much lower than most assets with a similar market cap.

    One half of the minted Shiba has been locked into Uniswap to reward liquidity providers. The other half is given to Vitalik Buterin (founder of Ethereum).

    Shiba Token Distribution
    Shiba token distribution

    Buterin donated 20% of the coins to two charities. One was not named, the other is India’s COVID-Crypto Relief relief fund. This gift was one of the largest donations made in cryptocurrencies. The rest of the coins (410 trillion tokens worth $6.5 billion) Buterin burned, sending it to a non-existent address.

    Burning reduces the number of tokens in circulation, which helps to get rid of inflation and increase the price of the coin. The fact of destruction of the coin can be verified by any user (such operations are recorded in the blockchain, like other transactions).
