The majority of new and first-time cryptocurrency investors are buying Shiba Inu because it’s a low-hanging fruit that’s available for grabs.

SHIB is trading at less than a Cent and is among the most affordable cryptocurrencies available in the markets. A mere $10 could fetch an investor nearly 1 million SHIB tokens and the sheer number thrills the new investors.


In addition, Shiba Inu regularly makes the rounds in the news cycle attracting first-time investors along the way. The mainstream media outlets regularly carry pieces about SHIB and new investors eventually believe that they’re missing out (FOMO).

Stories of the Average Joe making millions with a mere $1,000 investment in SHIB regularly make headlines across mainstream outlets. You can read how an investor made $23 million with Shiba Inu here.

However, whether SHIB will reach the 1 cent mark or not in the long run, only time will tell.
