Shiba Inu fans were pleasantly surprised by their beloved coin’s performance on the crypto market one day ago as the price of SHIB demonstrated a 25% rise. This made the meme token surpass Avalanche’s AVAX and pushed it closer to flipping its rival, Dogecoin, once again. The price movement was caused by Kraken adding support for Shiba Inu on Monday and a purchase of a whopping 24.8 billion SHIB by a mysterious whale nicknamed “Gimli.”
