Shiba Inu Adds Nearly 36,000 Holders Since June Despite Crypto Market Turmoil

The price trend of Shiba Inu has been following the rest of the cryptocurrency market and remains negative. Notably, SHIB is still seeking to reclaim the high points it reached last year, when the value and popularity of the meme coin surged. As of this writing, SHIB is trading at $0.00001145, down 4.5% in the last seven days, data from Coingecko show, Sunday. Despite the crypto market’s sluggish condition, a portion of the dog-themed coin’s investors are optimistic that the asset will recover and are boosting their coin purchases while ignoring the market’s weakness. According to data from CoinMarketCap, as of September 24, SHIB has 1,226,031 holding addresses, representing an increase of around 35,835 new holdings over the course of three months. The new holders represent a 3% increase from the 1,190,195 who were registered on June 26.

It is worth mentioning that interest in meme-based cryptocurrencies waned as a result of unfavorable publicity around the coins’ supposed lack of utility. Since June, Shiba Inu’s value has been on a roller-coaster ride, but the price has mostly remained low. The coin’s three-month high price was $0.000017 on August 15, and as of the time of writing, it had gained about 5% in the last 24 hours. Previously, the majority of retail investors liquidated around the price and then sought entry points as the memetoken approached $0.00001. Due to the massive concentration of tokens in the hands of small and medium-sized whales, Shiba Inu faces a significant increase in selling pressure whenever it succeeds to breach past local resistance barriers. Holding On To The Meme Coin Meanwhile, around 30% of SHIB investors have held the asset for more than a year, according to statistics from Into The Block. Despite the ongoing bear market, investors have generally abstained from disposing of their coins. These holders are fostering a bullish mood among investors while aiming to eliminate SHIB as a quick-profit asset. As of the time of writing, the trading volume of Shiba Inu is still declining, hence the token’s volatility remains high. The decline in trade volume is unfavorable for a coin that heavily depends on speculative appeal. As the number of SHIB holders increases, it appears that interest in the coin is waning. Google Trends data indicates that global searches for the keyword “Shiba Inu” decreased to their lowest level in the past 12 months, suggesting that SHIB could be losing its most avid fans.

Chiliz Bulls Test $0.2505 Resistance – Can CHZ Reach Green Zone?

Increasing volume in Chiliz intraday trades pointed to a likely bullish comeback in the coin’s price. Since the start of trading today, the volume of Chiliz has increased from $395,564,490 to $694,854,345. Market capitalization rose from $1,203,242,510 to $1,222,317,487 as trading volume rose. Increases in both trading activity and market capitalization of this magnitude suggest that a turnaround may be in the works. This could be the case if we believe real-time data. A cup-and-handle pattern appears on the chart, suggesting a possible or current upswing. As a whole, the cryptocurrency market has been seeking to rebound from the unfavorable market conditions that have dominated the financial sphere, so the recovery should come as no surprise for Chiliz.

Chiliz Bulls Facing $0.2505 Resistance The bulls in this market are currently testing the $0.2505 resistance level. Resistance at the 38.20 Fibonacci level sits at $0.2615, thus this price range is below that. Any price action for Chiliz above these levels would signal a continuation of the bullish trend that began at $0.2505 and is currently in play. Indicators provide a similar positive rebound narrative. The momentum indicator maintains a V-shaped pattern, indicating that the present market trend is rising. The Awesome oscillator indicates a major bullish reversal at the 4-hour tick level. At the level of 5.78, the price oscillator indicates a strong buy signal for investors and traders. Related Reading: AVAX Price Rebound Fails To Breach $22 Resistance Due To High CPI Data The $0.2505 Barrier Poses Major Challenge To sustain current upward trend, it is necessary to overcome the barrier at $0.2505. This is the immediate resistance the bulls will encounter before a possible push towards the 38.20 Fibonacci level. Currently, though, the bulls may have overextended and lost some impetus. The price has failed to consolidate above the 50.00 Fib level, according to current data. This failure to surpass the 50.00 Fibonacci barrier and the following lack of momentum can transform the bullish price reversal into a bearish trend. A short examination of the 4-hour clock reveals the formation of a double triangular pattern that may influence the recovery of the coin. The base of the formation rests directly on the 78.60 Fib level. It is vital for bulls not to be swayed by this emerging pattern, as the CHZ coin’s recovery hinges on the larger price fluctuations at the 1-day tick mark. If the bulls maintain their pace, we may finally witness a net price increase in the coming days.
