BREAKDOWN: 14 Takes on Shiba Inu Coin

Is it a playback of 2017 ICO madness or is there something more significant here? 

This episode is sponsored by NYDIG.

NLW today provides 14 different takes on shiba inu coin (SHIB) that reflect the range of perspectives across the crypto community, including:

  • “You could have been a billionaire if…”
  • This plays into regulator’s hands
  • “If it only goes to a dollar…”
  • Are the institutions really coming in? 
  • At what point do we take memes seriously?
  • Market nihilism 
  • And more!
