How to Buy Shiba Inu


What is Shiba Inu (SHIB)?

In August 2020, an anonymous developer named “Ryoshi” created Shiba Inu as the “Dogecoin killer.” Shiba Inu and Dogecoin both belong to a family of cryptos called “dog meme coins.” Shiba Inu is built on top of the Ethereum blockchain and has three tokens – SHIB, LEASH, and BONE. SHIB is the main utility token and the one listed by CoinSmart.

SHIB has fast become one of the most popular tokens in the world. The Shiba Inu community is one of the most rabid communities, which is willing to rally together and push the token price up when needed. SHIB started with a circulating supply of one quadrillion. Ryoshi locked 50% of the supply in decentralized exchanges to create liquidity, while the other 50% was sent to Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin. Buterin has since donated most of it to India’s Covid Relief and burned the rest.

What can you do with Shiba Inu?

Send SHIB To A Friend

The core functionality of SHIB is as a utility token. Being a public coin on a peer-to-peer network, you can send SHIB to anyone in the world, as long as they have a SHIB address. Being an ERC20 token, any Ethereum-compatible wallet is enough for you to send and receive SHIB.

Participate In ShibaSwap

Shiba Inu has its own DeFi ecosystem called ShibaSwap which allows holders to provide liquidity to different SHIB token pairs and earn yield. This is a very useful way to earn passive income. You can even buy NFTs in ShibaSwap.

Stake SHIB

Using ShibaSwap, you lock up (or “bury”) your SHIB tokens within the ecosystem to earn yield. If you are planning to hold SHIB long-term then it may be prudent to stake them and put them to use.

Hold Shiba Inu

Many people buy SHIB for profit expectations and to benefit from long-term gains. If you do have a "buy-and-hold" strategy, then we recommend transferring your coins to a cold hardware wallet like Ledger Nano. Having said that, CoinSmart has taken several security measures to ensure user fund protection. These include – mandatory 2FA, withdrawal confirmation emails, cold storage & BitGo user funds insurance.
