The crypto-verse is home to several meme coins. Yet, Shiba Inu’s popularity remains unmatched. The meme coin’s community, popularly known as the SHIB Army has managed to make sure the asset is always on top. In a similar attempt, it was discovered that the SHIB recorded a new high in terms of its holders.
WhaleStats, took to Twitter to announce that there were a total of 1,150,173 Shiba Inu holders. The tweet read,
This wasn’t the only thing that the SHIB Army was celebrating. The meme coin even bagged a spot on the prominent crypto exchange, Uphold. Just yesterday, the exchange welcomed Shiba Inu into its system. But, the altcoin wasn’t available in all regions.
It has been time and again noted that exchange listings can boost the price of certain cryptocurrencies. The latest listing, however, did not do the deed for Shiba Inu.
