Take a look at what happened in the world of crypto by reading U.Today’s top four news stories.
Shiba Inu (SHIB) takes over second largest Middle East economy with Welly burger joint
According to a recent tweet by Welly’s co-founder Stefano Gugl, the SHIB-themed burger joint is looking for partners or investors to open a new store in Dubai, the second largest Arab economy. Gugl called the potential initiative a "game-changing fast food venture," adding that the management of the store would be taken care of by the Welly team. The co-founder also emphasized that this would not be a franchise but an opportunity to open a new store together under a new company.
"If SHIB gets to $0.01," David Gokhshtein might take this action
David Gokhshtein, founder of Gokhshtein Media and SHIB supporter, has once again urged the canine meme coin to hit the $0.01 level. If SHIB manages to do it, Gokhshtein wrote in his recent tweet, he can delete his Twitter account. Back in December 2022, as reported by U.Today, the founder of Gokhshtein Media tweeted that as soon as SHIB “hits a penny,” he “will be out,” implying that he would sell his assets to make profits. So, by talking about deleting his Twitter account, Gokhshtein might be hinting at the same intentions. At the moment of writing, SHIB is trading at $0.000012, per CoinMarketCap.
