  • The token also saw adoption from large organizations that enabled its customers to interact with it. One of the largest Brazilian exchanges – Novadax – listed SHIB just a few days ago.
  • The popular trading app – Public – followed suit shortly after. Moreover, rumors emerged that Robinhood could be next in line, which also propelled significant price pumps.
  • Consequently, SHIB has surged by 35% in a day and 50% in a week and marked a new all-time high earlier at just over $0.000039. This means that the asset is up by more than 450% in October so far.
  • Its market capitalization now exceeds $15 billion, and SHIB is well within the top 15 coins by this market. In terms of traded volume, SHIB/USDT is the most traded pair on Binance over the past 24 hours, surpassing $2 billion in volume.
  • Further CoinGecko data shows that SHIB traded at $0.000000000077 on January 1st, 2021. It means that the meme coin is up by a whopping 50,649,250% YTD. As such, a hypothetical investment of $1,000 made on January 1st would be worth over $500 million today.
