10 Things You May Not Know About Shiba Inu and Floki Inu

Taylor Johnston



Meme coins, are cryptocurrencies born out of jokes and memes, an idea that appeals to niche groups of speculators. While many investors saw success with cryptos like Dogecoin (CRYPTO: DOGE), alternative investors are seeking to uncover fortune in other altcoins.

Here are two altcoins — cryptocurrencies other than Bitcoin (CRYPTO: BTC) — that investors have been flocking to recently, and 10 things you should know about them.

Shiba Inu (CRYPTO: SHIB)

Ranks comfortably as the 13th largest cryptocurrency by market cap, and at the time of writing is trading at $0.00002937.
SHIB is intentionally abundant, which had an original total supply of 1 quadrillion coins, which was reduced to 589.7 billion total coins after a massive cryptocurrency burn.
The meme coin donates a percentage of your Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) purchases through Amazon Smile to the Shiba Inu Rescue Association.
The dog-themed crypto is up an astounding 5,759,404.79% from its all-time low in September 2020.
Ethereum (CRYPTO: ETH) founder Vitalik Buterin donated over 50 trillion SHIB coins (worth $1.2 billion at the time) to India’s COVID-19 relief efforts in May 2021.

Shiba-Inu and Floki-Inu do not share the same tokenomics, but both coins are relatively bullish on development plans. For example, while SHIB holders get rewards for staking coins, which provides liquidity to the network’s ShibaSwap exchange, FLOKI owners can generate passive income when transactions take place using fees.

Part of the $FLOKI fee is sent to a burn wallet and removed from circulation, while another portion is redistributed to all holders of FLOKI.

Here is the woofpaper for Shiba Inu and the whitepaper for Floki Inu.

The APM incorporates best practices in vehicle sustainability, manufacturing, design, and construction.

The APM will operate 24 hours, seven days a week and will be free to the public.

“Innovation, sustainability and state-of-the-art technology are integral to our ongoing modernization,” said Justin Erbacci, Chief Executive Officer, LAWA. “These automated people mover train cars will set a high standard for environmentally sustainable transportation, having shells made of recyclable materials and achieving zero emissions.

President Joe Biden tested positive for Covid-19 on Saturday after several days of testing negative, marking the second time Biden tested positive for the virus this year.

White House physician, Dr. Kevin O’Connor said in a memo to Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre that the president is feeling fine, but given the positive antigen test, he will reinitiate isolation procedures.

“The President has experienced no reemergence of symptoms, and continues to feel quite well,” Dr. O’Connor wrote. “However, given his positive antigen test, he will reinitiate strict isolation procedures.”

Biden, who is fully vaccinated, and has received two booster shots of Pfizer Inc.’s PFE BioNTech vaccine took to Twitter Inc TWTR to alert the American people of his positive test, “I’ve got no symptoms but I am going to isolate for the safety of everyone around me,” the president tweeted. “I’m still at work, and will be back on the road soon.”

The President tested negative for four consecutive days, but according to Dr. O’Connor, Biden is experiencing “rebound COVID positivity in a small percentage of patients treated with Paxlovid,” Pfizer’s antiviral oral pill.

Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos Unite to ‘Change the Course’ of Neurological Disorder Impacting 6.5 Million Americans

Taylor Johnston



It’s a well-known fact that Microsoft Corporation MSFT co-founder Bill Gates, through his Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, is working toward eliminating infectious diseases and eradicating poverty in developing and under-developed countries.

Gates took to Twitter this week to share details of another disease he is working to address.

“We’re announcing the second phase of @TheADDF’s diagnostics accelerator,” he said.

“I’m hopeful that this new phase will make advances that help change the course of Alzheimer’s.”

Alzheimer’s Drug Discovery Foundation (ADDF) launched the “Diagnostics Accelerator” in 2018, with inaugural funding from Gates, Est?e Lauder Companies Inc.’s EL Leonard Lauder, Amazon, Inc. AMZN founder Jeff Bezos and the Dolby Family. The project envisage making Alzheimer’s tests affordable, as the existing ones are expensive and invasive.

“The objective is to develop reliable and affordable biomarker tests just like how cholesterol is considered an early biomarker for heart disease risk,” ADDF said on its website.

All these are critical for developing effective preventative and curative treatments for Alzheimer’s, it added. Diagnostics Accelerator has now received an additional $50 million in financial commitments from new funders, including the NFL Players Association, Eli Lilly & Company LLY, Biogen, Inc. BIIB and the Shanahan Family Foundation. This brings the total funding received since 2018 to $100 million.

Effective treatments for Alzheimer’s, a neurological disorder, have thus far eluded researchers due to the difficulty in diagnosing the condition at an early stage and administering the drug to the brain for testing.

Biogen had a very rough launch of its controversial Alzheimer’s drug Aduhelm, with the CMS offering very restricted coverage for this expensive treatment.
