What is happening between SHIB and Vitalik? | TICKER VIEWS

Ethereum creator Vitalik

Vitalik donates $1B worth of Shiba Inu coin to India

Firstly a bit of context: last week, Etherum’s co-founder Vitalik Buterin donated $1 billion worth of Shiba Inu coin to a COVID-19 relief fund in India.

But the massive donation spooked buyers, causing Shiba Inu Coin to plummet.

Shib Informer said in a private chat that many people distrust the Ethereum founder, for “no good reason.”

They added that buyers were becoming increasingly concerned that the currency is at the ‘mercy of a millionaire kid now,’ much like Dogecoin is beholden to Elon Musk.

However, SHIB welcomed Vitalik’s actions, saying that he is “not dumping our token” by “acknowledging a humanitarian crisis” in a recent open letter.

Vitalik destroys 90% of his SHIB coins

Vitalik has since burned 90% of his $SHIB wallet, now owning 5% rather than 45%. The currency has since risen approximately 12%.

The owner of the Shib Informer Twitter account said in a private message:

“Imagine that you own half of the dollars in the world, and you put them all in a room put gasoline and burn it. The remaining money in the world will rise in price, right? That is what happened.”

What is Shiba Inu Coin?

The “Shiba Inu coin” also known as SHIB coin or $SHIB is rising in popularity. Much like Dogecoin – it started out as a meme, but now crypto investors are seeing some potential.

Shiba was founded by the mysterious Ryoshi, in 2020. 

Shibu Inu coin can be bought as tokens directly from their website, or through popular third parties like the Uni-swap platform.

Kim Kardashian charged over crypto promotion

Published

on

Kim Kardashian is making headlines today but not for good reasons.

The celebrity has been charged $1.26 million by the Securities and Exchange commission for unlawfully promoting a crypto asset on her Insta profile.

The SEC found that the star failed to disclose she was paid $250, 000 to post about the digital coin.

Chair Gary Gensler says this is a reminder that “when celebrities endorse investment opportunities, it doesn’t mean that those investment products are right”

Gensler warned investors to do their own research and analyse the risk involved based on their own financial goals.

Kardashian fully cooperated with the investigation and is not allowed to promote another crypto asset for three years.

Of course, Coinbase dropped over 1-thousand staff as the value of the crypto falls dramatically.
