This was the first-ever logo of the Shiba Inu token during its launch in 2020. The phrase ‘The Dogecoin Killer’ was boldly written over it and the language ruffled a lot of feathers in the crypto market. The can be considered as a ‘classic good old’ logo of SHIB despite being less than 2 years old. The logo was first introduced on August 3, 2020, in Ryoshi Research papers that read, “ALL HAIL THE SHIBA! An experiment in decentralization.”

However, not everyone was impressed with the tagline as it took a straight aim at Doge. However, the tagline is what made SHIB get noticed in an already overcrowded crypto market and many investors began observing its performance.
