Shiba Inu Rises Despite The Imminent Update

The SHIB (Shiba Inu) token is the offspring of the Ethereum network – an alternative to DOGE (Dogecoin). SHIB is more or less the opposite of Bitcoin in terms of availability. While BTC intends to make it scarce on the crypto market, the SHIB token flows in abundance. This is evident in its total supply of 1 quadrillion, even though its community plans to drop this figure. Also, its ecosystem is a good ground for different projects. Some of these projects are the creation of a decentralized exchange known as Shibaswap and storing NFT art.

However, more updates on the game from the developers are still pending. The developers have revealed that they’ll release more updates on the newly launched Shiba Eternity on Thursday. An event will accompany the announcement according to the community. But the awaited update from the developers is already becoming a discussion subject on Twitter. This is due to the already slated Twitter Spaces. The community members will share their thoughts on the Shiba Eternity project there. More updates will come from the founder and lead developer of the SHIB token, Shytoshi Kusama, and William Volk. They intend to release these updates on the SHIB official Twitter page. Briefing On Shibarium Development A layer-2 blockchain network from the SHIB developers is currently in the pipeline. This blockchain is known as Shibarium, and it’s intended to reduce the workload of building blockchain ecosystem applications. The primary beneficiaries of this new development are developers and users. The idea of the Shibarium layer-2 network is similar to that of the Ethereum blockchain network. The reason is that both networks support developers of decentralized applications (DApps). The notion behind the project is to cut down transaction costs for gaming. This is possible because the project will serve as the premium layer-2 for the community and the SHIB token. A Quick Look At Shiba Inu Price Considering the current bearish state of the crypto market, it’s no surprise that the SHIB token is dropping in value. This is evident from the market watch in the last four weeks. The token is now down to its value dating from three months back. There’s no indication pointing to the possibility of a rise anytime soon. The same can be said about the general crypto market.

The digital token currently trades on a bullish trend. Featured image from UnSplash, Chart: TradingView.com

U.S. Federal Reserve Set To Hike Rates Above 400 BPs – How Will Crypto Market React?

The United States Federal Reserve is tightening, and interest rates hike has heavily impacted on the crypto market. Earlier this month, Bloomberg Analyst Mike McGlone McGlone said Bitcoin would outperform traditional stocks as interest rates hike. However, to this point, Bitcoin does not seem to follow Bloomberg’s predicted trend. As a matter of fact, despite Bloomberg’s bullish standpoint, Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are still in a crash. For example, BTC and ETH dropped by 2% after the Fed’s announcement and bounced back. BTC is currently trading below $19,000. The Fed’s Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) manages the economy during inflation and recession by controlling the money supply in the country. The Fed maintains the money supply via quantitative tightening and easing of reserves. As a result, a rise in interest rates triggers volatility in the market. Related Reading: Prepare For Volatility: Data Suggests Bitcoin Gets Chaotic During FOMC Meetings Inflation Would Drop To 2% By 2025, Says Federal Reserve The Federal Reserve revealed its plans to tackle inflation at Thursday’s FOMC. The Fed 75bps interest rate hike is just the tip of the iceberg as it plans to raise the rates as high as 400bps by the end of 2022. In August, the CPI indicated 8.3% YoY inflation, but the Federal Reserve forecasts inflation to come down to 2% by 2025. The Fed Reserve plans to bring inflation down to 5.4% by 2022 and 2.8% by 2023. Reports show that Fed raised this year’s interest benchmark by four times. The current rates are between 2.25% to 2.50%. From the CNBN Fed Survey for September, Fed’s interest hike would remain at the peak rate for 11 months. John Ryding, the Chief economic advisor at Brean Capital, commented in response to the survey. Ryding said the Fed has finally realized the inflation problem is critical. He thinks the Fed’s monetary tightening rate is a ‘positive real policy rate.’ The economist advises Fed to increase the current rate by 5%. The survey reported that among 35 survey respondents, some economists, strategists, and fund managers think Fed might overdo its tightening. Recession Would Hit Global Economy – World Bank The World Bank says recession would hit the global economy because of the war-like monetary policies of the world economy. Svan Henrich, the founder of Northman Trader, thinks interest rates would depend on recession than inflation in the next year. He thinks Jerome Powell, Chairman of the Fed Reserve, emulates Paul Volcker. Henrich further advised Powel to pivot before hitting the 40bps rates target. Paul Volcker is the former Chairman of the U.S Fed Reserves. Related Reading: Bitcoin Dumps After Revisiting June Lows, Where Does The Bottom Lie? Jerome refused to say much about the recession, saying he didn’t know the depth or when the recession would occur. Meanwhile, Fed dismissed all speculations of recession. Everyone awaits the release of the following inflation data in the Consumer Protection Index for September. In addition, the next Federal Open Market Meeting will take place on November 2.
