Buyers emerged at these lows, and SHIB recovered somewhat to intraday highs of $0.000082 on December 17. Although it is now trading in this range, investors might see it as an opportunity to purchase the dip.
Shiba Inu’s on-chain Data Hints Toward Bearish Blues
Shiba Inu’s burn tracker Shibburn recorded a total of 47,440,894 SHIB tokens burned in 11 transactions in the last 24 hours in a tweet on December 17. Shiba Inu’s burn rate has climbed by 235.41%, according to the official burn website.
Surprisingly, among the transactions that burnt the most SHIB tokens, Etherscan data from a wallet address revealed that the wallet had been dormant for more than a year. The wallet was activated, and all 23,616,644 SHIB tokens were sent to the burn address.
Increased volatility frequently leads to increased trading volumes as experienced traders buy and sell large quantities in order to maximize profits. Similarly, the spike in SHIB volume could be attributed to investors buying the dip when the stock’s price dropped to near six-month lows.
