What is Baby Shiba Inu?

Baby Shiba Inu is a cryptocurrency token that sits on the Binance Smart Chain. First launched in 2021, little is known about its development team, aside from what is disclosed in the audit.

The team is made up of individuals who have "all been through different DeFi projects in the last year, from managing to helping out with marketing and everything else."

Baby Shiba Inu is among the many Shiba Inu/Doge-related coins to release this year following the success of Dogecoin.

According to its whitepaper, Baby Shiba Inu is "all about spreading the puppy love", supporting the Shiba Rescue America Organization.

The website states $5000 has been donated - an amount that will increase as the community grows. However, its tokenomics do not specify what proportion of fees will go to charity. 6% goes to liquidity and is locked, 2% is distributed to holders, and 3% goes towards marketing.

It features a five-step 'Roadmap to the Moon', but has stated it does have plans beyond these steps. This includes releasing a Mobile NFT platform.
