Shiba Inu is an Ethereum based token created by an anonymous person known as Ryoshi. This makes it compatible with any Ethereum wallets and blockchains. The token gets its name from a Japanese dog breed that is popular and great for hunting.

Shiba Inu was mainly created to test what would happen if a crypto project was 100% run by its community. The project proved to be successful as Shiba Inu's price increased and grew. It currently has over 500,000 members.

However, in February 2022, there was a steep decline in Shiba Inu’s price. Nevertheless, the token is still one of the best out there.

Shiba Inu and Dogecoin

Dogecoin is an interesting cryptocurrency that’s based on Litecoin. It was created by Billy Markus and Jackson Palmer to act as a sarcastic form of payment. The Dogecoin symbol features the Shiba Inu dog breed as well. That’s why the code is DOGE, similar to the word dog.

Shiba Inu and Dogecoin are great competitors. The SHIB community, otherwise known as SHIBArmy, termed the Shiba Inu token the Dogecoin killer. They also have an undying love of Shiba Inu dogs. Overall, Shiba Inu serves as an alternative to Dogecoin though the two are pretty similar.
