Shiba tumbled rapidly thereafter, when Musk tweeted he did not own any of the crypto.

Asked on Twitter how much of the coin he owned, Musk replied, “None.”

“Out of curiosity, I acquired some ascii hash strings called ‘Bitcoin, Ethereum & Doge’. That’s it. As I’ve said before, don’t bet the farm on crypto! True value is building products & providing services to your fellow human beings, not money in any form,” he then tweeted.

A petition on, which amassed 230,00 signatures as of this morning, is asking Robinhood to list Shiba Inu coin to trade.

“Dogecoin has been a huge success for Robinhood, and its investors. We have all enjoyed the ride. Shiba Inu is a similar meme coin with genuine potential, up 2000% in the last weeks! Gaining new ground by the day. Shiba has just been listed on Binance, and its momentum grows by the hour. Half the questions when we log into trading forums ask ‘How can I buy Shiba!??’ Let’s encourage Robinhood to be the first traditional brokerage to get on this train!” the petition said.
