SHIB is 5% up after massive drop
Earlier today, the second largest meme coin reversed and began rising, adding 5.12%. This happened after a tremendous fall of the price by 11.45%.
In the past two days, SHIB has been moving in tandem with another popular meme coin — DOGE. Shiba Inu followed DOGE up as news of Elon Musk finalizing his deal on purchasing Twitter leaked out to the media.
Both coins fell sharply together yesterday and are rising again as the acquisition is complete.
