  • Newly-registered SHIB wallets grow along with Shibarium members.
  • Shiba Inu bumps into a massive resistance wall with 1.35T tokens.
  • SHIB’s Open Interest (OI) rate rises with a 1.77 long-to-short ratio.

The ever-growing community of Shiba Inu custodians has expanded by nearly 5% since last week, as the broader crypto markets enjoyed a relief rally led by Bitcoin’s run to claim a new yearly high at $49,872. However, SHIB has yet to catch up to the festivities, with a slight increase of 3% over the last seven days, despite BTC gradually approaching $50K.


Meanwhile, the Shiba Inu community continues to grow with a 4.76% increase in new registered wallets. Active addresses spiked by 28.36% during the same time frame, according to the seven-day on-chain data by IntoTheBlock.

This raises the natural question of why Shiba Inu’s $0.00001 price range has been on hiatus since January 11, 2024. Despite the exponential growth in new addresses, the on-chain metrics also show a 79.25% hike in crypto addresses with no holdings.

Can SHIB Surmount the 1.35T SHIB Resistance Wall?

While Shiba Inu’s Layer-2 blockchain, Shibarium, expands DeFi adoption with the latest integration into Frontier Wallet, the multiple milestones heavily contributed towards its userbase soaring from 29K three months ago to 63K today, according to

On-chain data also suggests that SHIB faces a hefty resistance wall, with 1.35 trillion canine tokens bought around this area. As 34% of current SHIB custodians are making a profit, going up from $0.000009 to $0.00001 looks like a bumpy road with many investors attempting to break even.

SHIB is exchanging hands at $0.000009457, according to independent cryptocurrency price aggregator CoinGecko. As SHIB’s total holder count enlarges, SHIB remains trendy in Derivatives trading. SHIB Garnered over $33M in 24 hours with a 37% rise in Derivatives trading volume. Crypto traders are contributing towards a gradual Open Interest (OI) rate hike for SHIB, according to CoinGlass on-chain data.

On the Flipside

  • The stagnant SHIB price movement is partly due to a decreasing price correlation with Bitcoin (BTC), which was at 0.44 at publication.
  • Shiba Inu’s (SHIB) Relative Strength Index (RSI) highlights an overbought condition, with the scales pointing to 73.

Why This Matters

The observations from on-chain metrics provide valuable insights into Shiba Inu’s price movement and the native Layer-2’s growth.
