Shiba Inu - Shiba Inu Meme Coin Soars to Record, Slips...as Chinese Authorities Strengthen Supervision of NFTsCryptocurrency prices were climbing Monday with the parody cryptocurrency Shiba Inu coin soaring to a record over the weekend before losing ground.

Shiba Inu's recent surge appears related to unconfirmed rumors that the coin would soon be listed on the popular stock trading app Robinhood, according to Fortune.  Shiba Inu coins traded at a record $0.0000455 at 7:20am U.S. Eastern. That topped the previous record $0.0000388 from May 10, Coindesk reported, citing Messari data. It's currently trading at $0.000039.

-- "[The] UK warning about investor protection

-- [The] EU cracking down on money laundering," and,

By Monday, Ma said, Chinese technology giants Alibaba Group and Tencent Holdings have both renamed their nonfungible-token offerings “digital collectibles.
