Shib sets new high in holder count
Also, Shiba Inu's holder count continues to grow. The total number of SHIB holders has risen to a new high of 1,243,804, according to WhaleStats. The increase in holder count might suggest long-term interest in an asset, though it may not immediately impact the price.
