Why is it moving? Saitama’s gains go hand in hand with the gains of major cryptocurrencies such as Dogecoin DOGE/USD and Thursday night as the global cryptocurrency market capitalization hit $2.85 trillion.
Saitama describes itself as a community-focused ERC-20 token and launched in May. The brand was inspired by the legend of a mysterious “ghost dog” that roams the mountains of the Saitama region in Japan.
The project behind the token plans to develop Saitama’s own ecosystem, including a marketplace, smart wallet, NFT-based launch platform, and multi-channel content platform.
The Saitama community, which calls itself the “Wolf Pack”, retweeted a message on Thursday saying that the token now has 200,000 holders.
