The Shiba Inu governance token, BONE ShibaSwap (BONE), suddenly rose over 20% as its price dip to $1.61 on Sept. 11 was met with buying. Alongside the jump in price was a 255% increase in trading volumes. At the time of publication, BONE was changing hands at $1.96, up 17.16% in the last 24 hours, per CoinMarketCap data.
Over the weekend, BONE squashed the 230 million token cap, which led to the halting of BONE minting. While BONE's maximum supply remains at 250 million, the remaining 20 million is left for gas and validators on Shibarium.
Bone was a top gainer in August, with its price boosted by news of exchange listings. In the past week, Cayman Islands-based crypto exchange BitMart announced the listing of BoneShibaSwap (BONE). In late August, the leading cryptocurrency exchange with over seven million users, LBANK, added support for Bone ShibaSwap on its platform.
Following the official halt of BONE minting, an upcoming reward token named "TREAT" will be introduced, deriving rewards for the SHIB Metaverse, the blockchain version of the SHIB CCG game, and the ecosystem in general. The timing of the "TREAT" token launch, however, remains unknown.
