The Shiba Inu dog happens to be the mascot of the favorite digital currency of Musk, the Dogecoin. He has also been called as “Dogefather” by its netizens.
Other Reasons For This Surge
However, the sole reason for this rise in the value of this meme coin is not Musk only. There are other reasons as well that led to the Shiba Inu surge. According to Ishan Arora, partners in a crypto hedge fund,
“The team of this crypto seems to be creating projects”
He further added that,
“However, it started as a meme coin with no use case but that is being changed as the team seems to be working on certain things like a decentralized exchange.”
Not only this crypto, other meme coins like Shiba Cash, and Husky soared 75% and 140% respectively. Other tokens that include Akita Inu, Doggy, Baby Doug, Pitbull, and Kishu Inu increased from 15% – 35%.

The Shiba Inu coin price in INR is ₹ 0.002350.
According to crypto experts, this market is still in its novice stage and so it reacts to volatile figures like Musk. As per Arora,
“Most people do not have the grasp of their investment thesis and merely follow some influencer and buy such meme coins. However, early Doge investors last year did quite well, so it is not as black and white as most want it to be.”
