Accumulation continues as Shiba Inu finds utility
As a fork of the Uniswap token UNI, Shiba Inu is a digital token that was developed in August 2020. SHIB has a distinctive feature – 10% of the token total amount is burned with each transaction. The burn will gradually cause the total supply of the token to decline.
However, the price movement has not been favorably impacted despite the burns that have occurred throughout time. Its lack of utility has also been a problem, which a thriving ecosystem could help. Additionally, if Shibarium is ever launched, the SHIB token may receive the utility for which its owners have been clamoring.
A good amount of SHIB tokens are being accumulated, according to data from Dune Analytics, despite the token’s apparent lack of utility. An upward trend in the accumulation level was visible in the graph below.
However, the observed figure showed that the number of daily active users has been quite low. This is to be expected, as there is no practical use for the meme coin, and the primary motivation for any transaction is accumulating it.

SHIB uptrend bucked?
On a daily time scale, SHIB was observed to be on an upward trend for some days. However, it had already lost over 5% of its gains at the time of writing. The price of the token was about $0.00008. If the price trend continued to decline, its support level near $0.00007 should hold.
