Meanwhile, the would-be victim of both the coins, DOGE  traded 9.12% higher at $0.50 at press time. The Shiba Inu-themed coin has fallen 15.68% for the week.

The promoters of LEASH and SHIB plan to launch yet another Dogecoin Killer dubbed “Bone” in the future, as per the tokens’ website.

LEASH touched an intraday high of $8,983.59 and a low of $4,681.97 in a 24-hour period.

Why It Matters: LEASH claims to have a total circulation of only 100,000 tokens, in contrast with SHIB, which has a circulating supply of 394.796 trillion coins. 

As a reference, Bitcoin (BTC) has a circulating supply of 18.7 million coins and a max supply of only 21 million coins. BTC traded 3.06% higher at $57,015.49 at press time.

SHIB has locked 50% of its total supply of one quadrillion coins to Uniswap (UNI) and the remaining 50% was burned to Ethereum (ETH) founder Vitalik Buterin. ETH traded 7.44% higher at $4,171.22 at press time.
