The recent increase suggests a growing community, which remains a healthy sign. While an increase in holders may not necessarily affect the price in the near term, it could indicate interest in the coin in the long term. At current prices, the Shiba Inu is down 89% from an all-time high of $0.000088 in October 2021.
According to on-chain analytics company Santiment, most crypto assets have reached historical MVRV levels, or “pain” limits in their trading returns. It notes that, generally, this is where price changes can be predicted to minimize current losses, although it is difficult to predict when this will happen.
The recent drop in prices isn’t deterring large Shiba Inu investors from hoarding at a discount, as the SHIB now makes up the largest portion of their holdings.
