Two brothers from Westchester, New York – Tommy and James who are now Shiba Inu (SHIB) millionaires were wedding videographers and struggling to make ends meet during the pandemic since they were not getting enough gigs.
The brothers and their family took a risk and put a total of $8,000 into the DOGE-inspired meme coin SHIBA Inu (SHIB) thinking that even if it goes zero, that’s will be okay for them.
I trusted my friend and I figured if it went to zero, that’s OK. I thought of it as a lotto ticket that wouldn’t expire.Tommy said that he treated the crypto bet as a lottery ticket
And despite Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin dumping most of his gigantic SHIB stake to India Covid Relief fund and bring down the price surge to a complete halt. The two brothers still made millions because of their very early investment.
Tommy and James have shared their newfound millionaire status with CNN after turning their meager investment into Shiba Inu that made them an overnight fortune.
What is Shiba Inu (SHIB) coin?
Shiba Inu coin SHIB is a meme coin similar to the DOGE coin it is purely created for fun. Like DOGE, it has zero value, no fundamental underlying product, except for a massively hyped-up community and large purchase volume.
SHIB coin is listed on all major exchanges like Binance, Huobi, KuCoin, WazirX in India. SHIB is up more than 11,000% in the past 30 days, according to the site CoinGecko.
However, with all the success, both Shiba Inu (SHIB) millionaires brothers advise that don’t put in any money that you aren’t willing to lose.
“The meme tokens are very high-risk and you really don’t know what is going to happen with them. We know this is not what typically happens, although Shiba has changed our lives. When you see it fluctuate so much, it does keep you up at night.”James
