Shiba Inu is a decentralized cryptocurrency with a focus on privacy and security. The project was launched in early 2019 by an anonymous team of developers. The native token of the Shiba Inu network is SHIB, which is used to fuel transactions and power the smart contract functionality of the platform. SHIB has a total supply of 1 quadrillion tokens and is not mineable. The token was distributed through a series of airdrops, with the largest airdrop occurring on the Binance Chain in May 2019. The Shiba Inu team has also launched a decentralized exchange, ShibaSwap, which allows users to trade SHIB and other BEP-20 tokens.
