Shiba Inu turns two today after it was launched on August 1, 2020, with a modest price of $0.000000000972241 (nine ‘zeroes’). The dog-themed token labeled itself the ‘Dogecoin killer’ during inception and garnered eyeballs for its bold yet challenging tagline. Nonetheless, its motto made headlines during its launch and attracted investors to the token. A year later, in 2021, SHIB removed the ‘Dogecoin killer’ language from its website and mellowed its tone. However, SHIB has come a long way post its launch two years ago by deleting several ‘zeroes’ in the indices.

While Shiba Inu was trading with nine ‘zeroes’ in August 2020, it plummeted the same year, adding an extra ‘zero.’ From October to December 2020, SHIB was trading with 10 ‘zeroes’ and mostly went on the back foot for three months.
