Shiba Inu: Binance Reveals SHIB Reserves and Restores User Confidence

Binance, the world's biggest crypto exchange, has revealed the details of its reserves system to show the large holdings of Shiba Inu (SHIB).

Shiba Inu, a meme coin created by a mysterious entity named Ryoshi in 2020, was designed as a competitor to its rival Dogecoin.

In late 2021, Shiba Inu experienced a remarkable surge of over 60,000,000% in under a year, making it one of the quickest asset price increases on record. Unlike Dogecoin, which operates on its own blockchain, Shiba Inu is an Ethereum-based token that provides its creators with more flexibility in terms of use cases.

In a recent blog post, Binance stated that it holds more than $63 billion worth of cryptocurrency assets for its customers.

According to their report, as of March 1st, Binance held 76,737,751,676,039 SHIB worth over $843.3 million in net customer balance, while its on-chain balance of 78,546,133,520,601 SHIB is worth more than $863.2 million.

This indicates that Binance has ample reserves to cover all customer withdrawals. Following the FTX crash in 2022, crypto exchanges have been scrambling to provide proof-of-reserve reports to ensure transparency and regain user trust.

Binance released its first proof-of-reserve report in November 2022 and pledged to maintain 1:1 asset security for all its users.
