All about Shiba Inu (SHIB) + How to buy in Canada

Shiba Inu (doge) Dog asks

Hey friends ๐Ÿ‘‹

I'm back again and I've got big news... at least depending on whom you ask ๐Ÿค”ย  For those of you who are interested in asymmetric bets, this will indeed be big news...

You can now buy Shiba Inu token, aka SHIB in Canada! ๐ŸŽ‰

Below I'll get into more about SHIB, including some interesting facts, and why you may (or may not) want to invest, but first off, here's what you came for, my referral code:

With that out of the way, let's talk doggos ๐Ÿ•

Not Another Doggy Coin!

Shiba Inu token (hereafter referred to as SHIB) is an ERC-20 token living on the Ethereum blockchain. It was launched in August 2020 a pseudonymous founder known simply as Ryoshi. It started as Ethereum's answer to Dogecoin, but after several months, the direction changed, and a second whitepaper (or woofpaper as they call it) was released, outlining new tokenomics, and an ecosystem build around three tokens: SHIB, LEASH, and BONE ๐Ÿ–

Let's talk about each of them ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿซ


The original token in the set is, for most, a speculative play. However, fans of the coin, known as the #ShibArmy, genuinely believe in its potential utility. Even if never crosses the $1 threshold, SHIB token has already made (and may very well make many more) millionaires ๐Ÿ’ธ

The reason it may never cross the $1 threshold due to its massive supply. The max supply of SHIB was originally 1,000,000,000,000,000 (that's one quadrillion), however 50% was gifted to Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin, and after donating billions of dollars worth to charities, including the India Crypto Covid Relief Fund, he burned 410,241,996,771,871.89~ tokens. As a result of this approximately 40% burn, SHIB has the potential to eat more zeroes than originally predicted, however, due to its massive supply, it is not possible for it to ever increase beyond zero. That is unless a significant portion were burned, like say 80% of the remaining supply ๐Ÿ”ฅ

But it doesn't matter ๐Ÿ™…โ€โ™‚๏ธ When we're talking about return on investment, all that matters is the amount of growth, and generally speaking, it is easier to go from $0.00000007 to $0.00007 (+100000%) than it is to go from $100,000 to $200,000 (+100%) ๐Ÿงฎ

I saw a post on Motley Fool that said if you invested $100 in Shiba Inu 15 months ago, youโ€™d now have $14 million ๐Ÿคฏ

By my calculation that's right ๐Ÿงย  And that's could be a pretty compelling reason to invest, but before I go any further I think it's about time I mention though that this is not financial advice, and that any investment can be risky, not the least of which is the kind made based around FOMO ๐Ÿ™ƒ Know what you can afford to lose, know why you're investing (whether short term or long; what's your exit strategy) and make your decisions accordingly โš–๏ธ

Moving on...


Leash is the Shiba Inu ecosystem's take on a store of value like Bitcoin. With a capped supply of only 107,646 tokens, demand willing, these tokens could become absurdly valuable ๐Ÿ’ฐ As a result of its low capped supply, LEASH holders are incentivized to provide liquidity in exchange for very lucrative rewards paid in partially vested tokens.


BONE is intended to be the governance token of the DoggyDAO. Token holders, are intended to be able to vote on proposals ๐Ÿ—ณ In the mean time, BONE can be acquired exclusively on ShibaSwap and can be staked to earn rewards ๐Ÿ–


That's right, the SHIB ecosystem launched a native decentralized exchange (DEX) with yield farming built in. Users can provide liquidity, stake, and more all from this offshoot of the Shibatoken website.


The Shiba Inu token ecosystem is built to be fun (almost videogame-esque) and lucrative. It's the work of a community who doesn't take itself seriously, and yet, believes that money doesn't need to be serious. Spending a few hundred million doggy tokens on a meal at a french bistro ๐Ÿฅ to digging, fetching, and burying BONE tokens, and who knows what the future will hold ๐Ÿ•

The power of memes never ceases to amaze me. And here is one that just won't quit.

And now, if you want to buy SHIB in Canada, you can! And don't forget to use my referral if you're new to Newton.

PS, I've grown to be a pretty big fan of Newton, here's why ๐Ÿ‘‡


Wealthsimple Crypto now offers SHIB as well. This is a custodied approach, but it's very easy for beginners, and some may prefer this. If you're interested to try Wealthsimple Trade (the app that offers both stocks and crypto trading) use my referral for a bonus ๐ŸŽ

CoinSmart also offers SHIB now. Available in Canada, the US, and Europe, you can use my referral for $15 when you spend $100 ๐Ÿง 

If you're in the US, you can buy SHIB on Coinbase or better yet, if you want a well-regulated (read: unlikely to come under scrutiny) exchange with up to 10 free withdrawals per month (a huge savings, especially on Ethereum-based tokens), check out Gemini, and get $10 of free Bitcoin when you spend $100 ๐Ÿ‘ฏโ€โ™‚๏ธ

So what do you think? Do you love meme coins, internet money, or whatever you choose to call it? Or is it all just a distraction? Will you be investing? If so how how do you think it can go? ๐Ÿš€

I personally invested $100 and I'm going to hold it for at least 6 months and then write a blog post about my experience. Stay tuned for that.

With that, here's one more reminder that this is not financial advice. Buy, don't buy; you do you. And until next time ๐Ÿ‘‹
