What is Shiba Inu?

Shiba Inu is a meme coin that wants to compete with Dogecoin. In terms of uniqueness, there is very little that differenciates it from Dogecoin. Except, SHIB is an ERC-20 token on the Ethereum network. Initially, 1 quadrillion tokens were created. Half of it was sent to uniswap for liquidity and the other half was sent to Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin.
