Coinbase adopts SHIB
Also, the Shiba Inu rally had one more booster behind it.

“Coinbase customers can now trade, send, receive or store SHIB in most regions supported by Coinbase,” the announcement read. “The trading of these assets is also compatible with Coinbase Pro.”
On the way to recovery
ShibaSwap in mid-August burned $25,000 worth of SHIB to boost the token’s demand among speculators. The token started with a 1 quadrillion supply but gifted half of it to Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin. He later burned some of it by sending them to a dead wallet and donating the rest (about $6.7 billion) to a COVID-19 charity in India.
In detail, the SHIB is an Ethereum-powered cryptocurrency that try imitate Dogecoin, the original cryptocurrency meme. The Shiba Inu token gained prominence merely because of Musk’s enigmatic support for crypto-meme coins. As a result, SHIB now has a market capitalization of $3.31 billion, the 46th largest in the world.
Shiba Inu’s optimistic prospects depend on its adoption, not its usefulness. Traders buy SHIB, anticipating that more as they will join the pack and grow the community, just as in the case of Dogecoin. The strategy led Shiba Inu to use his popularity to launch a dedicated decentralized bag called ShibaSwap.
