What is Shiba Inu (SHIB)?

Shiba Inu Coin (SHIB) is an ERC-20 token built on Ethereum. SHIB can use smart contracts to create products or services for decentralized finance and other decentralized applications. Dubbed as the “Dogecoin Killer," the Shiba Inu ecosystem supports NFT art incubators and a decentralized exchange called Shibaswap. Similar to Dogecoin, there are plenty of SHIB in circulation — with an initial supply of one quadrillion coins.

How Does Shiba Inu Work?

Since Shiba Inu is built on the Ethereum blockchain, it offers trading between ERC-20 tokens. Shiba Inu has its own decentralized exchange called ShibaSwap. This makes Shiba part of the decentralized financial ecosystem on Ethereum, allowing its users to get certain functionalities, like swapping tokens, staking, and gaining yields.

What is SHIB, LEASH, and BONE?

ShibaSwap is Shiba Inu's own decentralized exchange where users can "dig" (provide liquidity), "bury" (stake coins), "fetch" (get tokens from Uniswap or SushiSwap), and "swap" tokens. Using this platform, investors have a number of ways to improve their return on investment. The ecosystem includes SHIB, LEASH, and BONE tokens.

  • SHIB is the main token of the ecosystem. The SHIB token is a cryptocurrency that allows users to hold trillions of tokens. Shiba Inu can be used for peer-to-peer digital payments or as a payment method at businesses that accept it. At the start of 2022, more than 600 businesses accepted Shiba Inu.
  • LEASH incentivizes holders for liquidity. With a total supply of only 107,646 tokens, LEASH has a distinct appeal due to its scarcity. LEASH is ShibaSwap's second incentive token, offering a variety of benefits in exchange for liquidity.
  • BONE acts as a governance token. BONE has a total of 250,000,000 tokens and is a governance token that allows the #ShibArmy to vote on future ideas and initiatives.
