Buy Silver with Shiba Inu Through BitPay

What is Shiba Inu?

In August 2020, Shiba Inu was created anonymously as an Etherium-based altcoin. This digital token receives its name from the famous Japanese hunting dog breed Shiba Inu and uses an image of the dog as its mascot. Considered a decentralized meme token, Shiba Inu has gained tremendous popularity. So much so that communities have joined together to form the SHIBArmy. As of December 2021, Shiba Inu surpassed the tremendously popular Dogecoin as the token with the highest valuation in the shortest amount of time.

Why is Shiba Inu so Popular?

In the age of social media trends, meme coins have attracted a cult-like following. Influential people like Elon Musk have tweeted about Shiba Inu, increasing the popularity of the token. Shiba Inu owners enjoy posting memes and inside jokes under trending hashtags like #SHIB, #SHIBArmy, and #ShibalnuCoin.

Another differentiator of Shiba Inu from other digital currencies is the total supply of tokens available. Instead of keeping token supplies low to help increase a higher valuation, as is the case with Bitcoin, Shiba Inu offers a total supply of one quadrillion tokens. This allows Shiba Inu users to hold trillions of tokens in their digital wallets at a time.

What Silver Bullion Products Should I Purchase with My Shiba Inu?

Silver has become one of the most popular investments throughout history. The precious metal has been used as a hedge against inflation and is becoming more popular among investors and collectors alike. You can buy silver bullion in various forms from Bullion Exchanges. 

Bars

Silver bars are rectangular ingots minted from companies around the world. Sizes vary from 1 gram to 1 kilogram and are usually stamped with the mining company’s logo, dimensions, and purity. Bullion bars are popular with investors who prefer to buy precious metals in large amounts.

Coins

Unlike bars, silver coins are created by government mints and carry a legal tender status. Bullion silver coins feature year, face value, purity, weight, and unique designs. You can buy silver coins as uncirculated or circulated which provide different finishes. Many people purchase silver coins as collectible items, but you can also invest in an IRA using silver coins.

Rounds   

Similar in shape to a coin, rounds are a thin circular silver disk. Many minting companies create these rounds as an alternative to silver bars. Even though rounds look like coins, they do not have a legal tender designation. Rounds are minted similarly to bars, containing the company logo, weight, design, and purity. These coins are popular because they are easy to store and require minimum investment.
