Key Takeaways

  • Shiba Inu’s (SHIB) saw a triple-digit growth rate last week; a variety of factors such as a tweet from Elon Musk, the announcement of ‘Shiboshi’NFTs and rumours about Robinhood listing SHIB seem to have contributed.
  • Bitcoin continued double-digit growth in its price index. The Security Exchange Commission (SEC) also approved an indirect Bitcoin Exchange-Traded Fund (ETF) application in which the ETF will invest in companies with exposure to Bitcoin and related supporting infrastructure including cryptocurrency mining; this piece of news may have contributed to the surge, in addition to reports of low spot reserves.
