He Invested $17 In Shiba Inu. Now He Has Almost $6M

“Dog meme tokens” have captured the attention of crypto market participants – most recently Shiba Inu token (SHIB) took the spotlight after gaining 1479% in seven days.

What's even more impressive is the token’s overall returns to early holders who purchased SHIB in October 2020.

What Happened: According to Etherscan, one token holder turned $17.53 into over $5.8 million after holding onto his initial investment for just 197 days.

The token holder’s wallet address also reveals more recent purchases of Papa Elon (PLON) tokens and StarElon tokens (StarLon) approximately 17 days ago. According to transaction details, PLON’s value has also doubled since his purchase.
