The Best Trade of All Time? Crypto Investor Put $8,000 Into Shiba Inu 400 Days Ago – This Is How Much It’s Now Worth

About 400 days ago, an anonymous crypto investor purchased about $8,000 worth of the memecoin Shiba Inu (SHIB).

The return on that investment? The lucky trader’s SHIB is now worth more than $4.45 billion.


The business media company Morning Brew first reported on the jaw-dropping trade earlier this week, right as SHIB was blasting off to its all-time high. At that point, the investor’s Shiba Inu stockpile was worth $5.7 billion.

SHIB is trading at $0.00006348 at time of writing, down 26.3% from its all-time high on Wednesday, according to CoinGecko. The Ethereum-based memecoin is still up a whopping 80,364,512.2% in the past year.

Blockchain analytics firm IntoTheBlock notes that 36 addresses hold 80% of SHIB’s circulating supply.

SHIB received a boost last month when Coinbase added support for the memecoin across all platforms. Earlier this month, Tesla CEO Elon Musk tweeted a photo of his Shiba Inu puppy, igniting another rally for the token.

Musk clarified earlier this week that he doesn’t actually own any SHIB, but that didn’t slow down the asset’s rally. While surging to its all-time high, Shiba Inu briefly leapfrogged its more well-known competitor, Dogecoin (DOGE) in the crypto market-cap rankings.

DOGE has since moved back into the 9th spot overall, with SHIB in 10th, according to CoinGecko.
