SHIB price response

Shiba Inu (SHIB) Trend Reversal Incoming? Here's Why

At the current price level, SHIB is still down by more than 4% for the week; however, the current positive metrics in the SHIB burn rate can ultimately help refuel the growth in the price of SHIB in the near term. The token has a high propensity for volatility and, as such, can pick up on this positive metric to chart its new growth course.

The Shibarium influence

Shiba Inu is also benefiting from the growing influence and the positive sentiment surrounding Shibarium. The Layer 2 protocol has continued to print new milestones, including growth in the number of users on its Puppynet testnet.

Shibarium is designed to be an ultimate game changer that will place Shiba Inu in the spotlight as a smart contract hub. The token is going to benefit from this push in the long term as massive accumulations are already taking place.
