Shiba Inu [SHIB], a meme cryptocurrency, exploded in popularity this year. While it was initially due to its growing prices, the network also increased its utilities.
In recent months, the Shiba Inu [SHIB] network has performed incredibly well. Despite the increase in acceptance of other cryptos, meme coins are gaining traction.
Even though Dogecoin rules supreme as the monarch of meme coins, Shiba Inu is giving DOGE a run for its money. Shiba Inu anticipates explosive growth in the next few years thanks to a slew of new developments in the works.
The Shiba Inu Burn initiative is such a development with a vision to reduce the SHIB in circulation. This is envisioning a boost in price that will be triggered by a reduction in supply and increased demand.
