The Shiba Inu Coin (SHIB), which has risen by almost 45 percent in the last 24 hours, has once again stunned the cryptocurrency world. The coin is trading at $0.00001264 as of Tuesday, with a market valuation of $4,987,163,972 after rising by 49% since 4th October, Monday. This however did not affect the prices of all the other major cryptocurrency market prices that remained almost the same, with only a minor uptick in the values of the other coins.

The coin has risen in value following a tweet from Tesla CEO Elon Musk. This has happened even before. After Musk shared a photo of his new pet dog dubbed 'Floki,' the price of Shiba Inu surged in a matter of minutes. On 4th October Monday, Musk tweeted another photo of the puppy with the caption "Floki Frunkpuppy," causing the token's price to skyrocket once again.
