No, it was not Bitcoin, or Ether, or even Dogecoin that dominated 2021. In the CoinMarketCap index that tracks views for all cryptocurrencies, Shiba Inu (SHIB) ranks first.
As we enter 2022, Shiba Inu and decentralized platforms that are underpinned by the SHIB token remain a close watch. One such platform is ShibaSwap. Let’s know what it is, and what its $Bone token is.
What is ShibaSwap platform?
ShibaSwap is a decentralized exchange or DEX. For now, the platform supports purchase of SHIB and two other cryptos, LEASH crypto of Doge Killer project and ShibaSwap’s own native Bone token.

As we know that SHIB can be purchased through a leading crypto exchange Coinbase, ShibaSwap has its own features like swapping and staking of crypto holding. SHIB price skyrocketed when Coinbase listed it in September 2021. But as stated, staking is not possible over crypto exchanges, for which DEX can be the answer.
What is Bone token?
Bone coin or $Bone is the native governance token of decentralized exchange, ShibaSwap.
The native token is used within the platform to facilitate liquidity, staking and swapping. $Bone crypto completes the ShibaSwap ecosystem. Holders of Bone token can participate in governance in order to decide how the platform functions.

This indicates that even after gaining more than 15 per cent over the past 24 hours, Bone coin has yet to recover the lost ground.
Volatility aside, if ShibaSwap’s platform can draw more users for its swapping and staking services, it is likely that Bone crypto may sustain its upward movement.
SHIB is the native token of Shiba Inu, and it surpassed the popularity of its nearest rival meme currency, Dogecoin, in 2021.
SHIB has gained multi-fold, and has a market cap of US$18.6 billion as of, now which makes it one of the 15 largest cryptos by market cap.
