They’ve let the dogs out.
Shiba Inu has pumped by over 25 per cent this morning after trading in the meme coin finally began on Coinbase Pro. The listing was initially scheduled for June, but delayed because of technical issues.
More than US$1.24 billion (A$1.7 billion) in Shiba tokens had been traded on Coinbase by 11.30am AEST, just nine hours after trading began.
Tons of 10billion+ coin orders ($100k+)
