Shiba Inu is a meme coin that was designed to serve as a Dogecoin (DOGE) killer. While this was its initial mantra, it has expanded its core vision and relevance to its community over the years. The digital currency is now the 14th largest asset with a market capitalization of $7.18 billion, proof of how dominant it is as a community-driven token.

Despite the slowing burn rate, a total of 2,020,294 SHIB units have been burnt over the past 24 hours, a seeming breather from the 27,164,707 SHIB burnt in a day earlier this week, as reported by U.Today.

Potential SHIB trend reversal

Shiba Inu (SHIB) is a very sensitive digital asset that is predisposed to high volatility based on unique positive news.

As proof of the community's trust and approval of the project, the token has maintained 5.56% growth over the past week.
