The world of digital assets paused briefly after Shiba Inu overtook the FTX token in terms of its dollar value. The Cryptocurrency was traded with a preference by several Ethereum whales, large-holders of a particular digital asset.
However, the celebration lasted for a short time after the FTX token got back on track to regain its spot on the global list. Shiba Inu, considered to be a relatively lesser-known token, surprised everyone in the trading community, with many hoping that it could have lasted longer.
