With the cryptocurrency’s market cap hitting $21 billion, Shiba Inu is now bigger than Japanese car manufacturer Nissan ( $19.9 billion) and South Korean tech company LG Electronics ($19.88 billion).
The meme coin is up 87% this week alone, extending its streak of eye-popping gains.
Robinhood keeps kicking the can down the road
As reported by U.Today, the question about the Shiba Inu listing was the top-voted one ahead of Robinhood’s Q3 earnings call.

Robinhood’s shares plunged more than 8% in after-hours trading after the company revealed that its cryptocurrency-based revenue had tanked by a higher-than-expected 78%.
The online brokerage app made only $51 million with cryptocurrency transactions compared to $233 million during the previous quarter.
