Searching for the Hottest Crypto – Check Out Shiba Inu

Fashioned after the Japanese dog breed of the same name, cryptocurrency Shiba Inu is popping up in more and more search results the world over.

‘Shib' is topping the charts in 98 countries, a little over half of all analyzed by CasinoScores. The UK, Germany, Sweden, and India are some countries where Shiba Inu has seen the largest gains in search frequency.

The runner-up coin also has a Japanese name – Saitama. The cryptocurrency is named so due to a mysterious “ghost dog” that, according to legend, roams the mountains of Saitama and is considered a guardian against misfortune.

Saitama caters to the budding Gen-Z investor crowd. The project has a dedicated team that pushes out edutainment content to spread awareness about money management to their young demographic.

Since being launched in May last year, Saitama has amassed around 360,000 holders. The coin tops CasinoScores' list in 15 countries, including France, the U.S., and New Zealand.

Tied at third are Bombcrypto and Binance Coin. The former is the native token of a Play-2-Earn game of the same name, while the latter is the utility token of the world's largest cryptocurrency exchange, Binance.

Fifth is Chia, a peer-to-peer exchange network that claims to be an eco-friendly alternative to Bitcoin. This is due to its less energy-intensive “proof of space and time” verification method.

The blockchain firm behind Chia, Chia Network, plans to publicly list on the stock market this year or merge with a special purpose acquisition company (SPAC).
