Why Is It Moving? SHIB, which describes itself as Dogecoin DOGE/USD-killer, fell in tandem with other major coins at press time as the global cryptocurrency market cap decreased 1.38% to $2.60 trillion.

SHIB did not attract high interest on Twitter at press time. It was mentioned in 317 tweets, as per Cointrendz data.

The most mentioned coins Bitcoin and Solana attracted 943 and 884 tweets, respectively. 

The latest rally in SHIB, prompted by its listing on the major cryptocurrency exchange Kraken, is petering out.

On Wednesday, Newegg Commerce Inc NEGG, which said it would integrate SHIB for payments Tuesday, put up an outdoor billboard in downtown Los Angeles featuring the SHIB mascot.

In a statement, Newegg said it would accept SHIB as a form of payment on its website in time for the holidays.

“The Wolf of Wall Street,” Jordan Belfort, said cryptocurrencies such as DOGE and SHIB have “no value and no use.” Belfort said creators of such coins “should go to jail.”
