According to Shibainuart, a Shiba Inu community-focused Twitter account, Shiba Inu has surpassed 1,190,350 holders. Shiba Inu's holder count continues to grow despite the recent price drop. According to WhaleStats, the SHIB holder count has grown to reach a new high of 1,191,766 at press time.
$SHIB surpasses 1,190,350+ holders. This is all thanks to the community, their energy to continue building, and support for Shiba Inu. All this, while welcoming new #ShibArmy members to join with excitement.— MILKSHAKE (@shibainuart) July 2, 2022
The recent increment suggests a growing community, which remains a healthy sign. Although the growth in holders might not necessarily impact the price in the near term, it may indicate interest in a token in the long term. At current prices, Shiba Inu remains down 89% from the all-time high of $0.000088 reached in October 2021.
Per on-chain analytics company Santiment, most crypto assets have reached historic MVRV levels, or "pain" thresholds in their trading returns. It notes that, typically, this is where a price turnaround to alleviate current losses may be anticipated, although it is difficult to predict when this will occur.
The recent drop in price does not seems to deter Shiba Inu's large investors from accumulating at a discount, as SHIB now makes up the biggest chunk of their holdings.
