In a recent tweet, the world’s most-referenced cryptocurrency price-tracking website CoinMarketCap announced that Shiba Inu was the most viewed crypto in 2021.

It is currently the 13th largest cryptocurrency in the world, with a market cap of over $20 billion.

According to CoinMarketCap, Shiba Inu recorded more than 188 million views during the last 12 months, while apex cryptocurrency Bitcoin came in second with 145 million views in 2021.

Dogecoin was ranked in the third position among the most viewed cryptocurrencies with 107 million views.

Cardano had around 86 million views, and Ethereum garnered 81 million views.

In October, SHIB surged over 216 percent in a week-long period, reaching an all-time high of $0.000088.

Earlier this month, Randi Zuckerberg, the sister of Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Meta Platforms Inc., pointed out that Dogecoin killer Shiba Inu has become mainstream.

Shiba Inu has been undergoing continuous development over the last few months, even as the crypto’s price has been dropping.
