Shiba Inu has enjoyed major growth in recent months. Last month, the meme coin reached an all-time high of $0.000086 due to the token’s increased hype. Moreover, the token has been listed on top cryptocurrency exchanges, increasing its market scope.
After listing on top exchanges such as Binance and Coinbase, the token was also listed on Gemini and Crypto.com. Earlier this week, Kraken had hinted that it would list the token, which has created a buzz among Shiba Inu holders. The meme coin is yet to be listed on Robinhood despite the Shiba Army collecting half a million signatures to petition the exchange to list the coin.
