Shiba Inu is rising the trending chart today after the recent listing of one of its native assets, $BONE, on Changelly.
BONE is one of the four tokens that will power the upcoming Shibarium network. It serves as the governance token for the decentralised exchange (DEX) platform called ShibaSwap. It also empowers the Shiba Inu community to participate in decision-making by voting on proposed changes and submitting their own proposals.
Its listing on Changelly is considered highly significant due to the potential injection of liquidity from the numerous cryptocurrency exchanges which Changelly acts as intermediary to.
