Shiba Inu (SHIB) now accepted by leading Dubai university via this integration

This event marked absolute top for Shiba Inu (SHIB)
Director at Coinbase Conor Grogan has recently shared a Twitter thread, which shed some light on events on the SHIB market. In the thread, Grogan marked the meme token's "absolute top" that took place on Oct. 27, 2021; on that day, the largest SHIB farmer unstaked $107 million of the digital asset and sent it all to FTX, Huobi, Binance and OKX. This made Shiba Inu plummet, and it never recovered from the decline. Also, at the time of the transfer, FTX had just expanded its offerings of a SHIB perpetual futures contract called KSHIB. Conor also provided a screenshot of the OI for SHIB from that date, noting that it had increased significantly. The thread suggests that the person behind SHIB's crash could have been Sam Bankman-Fried, the disgraced FTX founder.
