What is Shiba Inu ?

Shiba Inu (SHIB) is a meme coin that rose to prominence in August 2020 shortly after it was created. Released at a time when dog-themed cryptos were on the rise in the crypto market, Shiba Inu quickly garnered attention from key industry personalities like Vitalik Buterin (Ethereum creator) and Elon Musk (Tesla founder). This saw prices of the coin soar, prompting Buterin to donate 10% of his holdings to the COVID-19 relief effort in India.

Self-described as the Dogecoin killer, the SHIB token is Ethereum-based and has grown into a decentralised ecosystem. Today, this encompasses 2 new tokens (LEASH and BONE), its own decentralised exchange Shibaswap, and upcoming NFT projects.

Shiba Inu vs Dogecoin

Dogecoin and Shiba Inu are both meme tokens that have benefited considerably from celebrity attention. Although the coins may be similar in name and abundance, they are each built a little differently. Dogecoin utilises proof-of-work blockchain technology, like Bitcoin, while Shiba Inu is built on the Ethereum network.

Considering the large number of DOGE and SHIB coins in circulation, the price of both tokens is still very low. That said, they each have a market cap of over $1 billion.

You can buy SHIB and DOGE both from the Swyftx crypto exchange platform.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where can I store Shiba Inu?

When you purchase any asset, it will be stored in a cryptocurrency wallet. Crypto wallets allow you to securely manage digital assets, including sending and receiving them. If you buy Shiba Inu through Swyftx, it will be automatically stored in a wallet integrated with your account. Should you wish to transfer your SHIB to another wallet of your choosing, you can easily withdraw the asset and transfer it across.

What are the trading fees?

No matter where you choose to buy SHIB in NZ, trading fees will apply. At Swyftx, we have no fees on NZD deposits and a standard 0.6% trading fee on all buy and sell orders. Exact fees may vary based on high volume discounts and spreads though. That’s why we provide a full fee breakdown to all our customers before they confirm a trade.

The spread is the difference in the buy and sell prices of an asset. Providers don’t typically advertise their spreads, meaning traders can get stung with extra hidden fees. At Swyftx, our average spreads are around 1.7% compared to the 4.0% industry average. So, you never have to worry about getting burned with any surprise fees! If you have any questions about fees and spreads, please don’t hesitate to contact our customer support team via live chat.

I set up an SMSF with Swyftx which requires a few steps outside of their usual sign up process. I've also added additional accounts which needed 'custom' KYC verification, and every time they were more than willing to work with me...
