Shiba Inu (SHIB) Correlation With Bitcoin at Its Highest YTD, Here's What's Coming Next

Bitcoin to break $30,000, Max Keiser says, slamming CZ of Binance; here’s why

In a recent tweet, former trader and BTC bull Max Keiser shared that he expects Bitcoin to surpass the $30,000 level. His post reads: “When Bitcoin breaks $30,000 CZ’s shorts start hammering him badly. Squeeze harder, degens!!” What Keiser is referring to by mentioning head of Binance Changpeng Zhao (“CZ”) and his “shorts” could be massive liquidations made by the exchange yesterday as Bitcoin soared above the $26,000 level. Per on-chain data, $99.9 million worth of crypto was liquidated by Binance, with 77.38% of those being short positions. As for the most likely reason for BTC’s sudden growth, it could lie in the released February Consumer Price Index (CPI) — it has seen an inflation drop from 6.4% to 6.0% on the YOY basis over January, as was expected by economists.

Shiba Inu (SHIB) whales waking up, data shows

The average transaction size of Shiba Inu has recently seen a significant increase by almost 50%. Such an increase could be an indicator of SHIB whales' growing activity, which is pushing massive amounts of tokens and potentially driving up demand for the cryptocurrency. At the moment, the average transaction size on the Shiba Inu network stands at around $11,000. In comparison to earlier levels, which were roughly $7,000, we can see substantial growth. The sudden rise in transaction size suggests that large players such as whales are becoming more active on the network and pushing up demand for SHIB tokens.
