Shannon Bray, a gubernatorial candidate in North Carolina on Wednesday said that he is buying Shiba Inu (CRYPTO: SHIB) with his next paycheck.
What Happened: Bray was responding to a social media that asked which meme coins users are buying during 2023, Bray revealed he plans to buy SHIB with his next paycheck.
According to Bray, "nothing else will ever regain that traction" that Shiba Inu has accumulated. In addition, Bray believes that people who have left the SHIB community will come back due to the presence of Robinhood Inc (NASDAQ:HOOD).
I get paid tomorrow and I'm still buying $shib. Nothing else will ever regain that traction and people will come back because of @RobinhoodComms. #shibarmy is the movement. — Shannon Bray 🪙 (@ShannonBrayNC) June 13, 2023
