Come & stay a while at the scenic Dunes!
Upon gazing beyond you discover an oasis of sorts, yet this oasis is like no other, it's massive, it's shaped, and welcomes an adventurous and modern place, full of glitzy architecture and cooling waters. pic.twitter.com/AirNMBXvDv

Is Shiba Inu growing in bear market?
Apart from the developments in the SHIB metaverse, several more updates looked positive for the Shiba Inu ecosystem amidst this current bearish market condition.
For instance, PawZone, a member of the Shiba Inu community, recently announced that they are currently putting all their attention on Pawzaar, the NFT marketplace, created for the Shibarium network. A lot of progress has already been made, and they will soon reveal the work they have done.
On the other hand, Santiment’s data showed that SHIB’s NFT ecosystem witnessed growth over the last week. The total number of NFT trade counts along with the total NFT trade volume in USD spiked over the past seven days, which was a positive signal.
However, the question is- Will the metaverse updates and growth in the NFT space be enough to provide aid to SHIB?
SHIB’s performance has not been impressive lately, as it has failed to register any upticks, thanks to the bearish market condition.
According to CoinMarketCap, SHIB’s price decreased over 6% in the last seven days, and at press time, it was trading at $0.000009138. Interestingly, things might soon change in favor of SHIB as several of the on-chain metrics were in favor of the buyers.
CryptoQuant’s data revealed that SHIB’s exchange reserve was decreasing, which was good news as it indicated less selling pressure. Moreover, SHIB’s stochastic was in an oversold position, further increasing the chances of a price surge in the days to follow.
Interestingly, the whales’ confidence in SHIB gave further hope to investors. According to WhaleStats, SHIB topped this list of cryptos that the top 5000 Ethereum whales were holding.

Furthermore, SHIB’s MVRV Ratio went up last week, which was yet another bullish signal. And, the daily active addresses also spiked over the last few days, reflecting a larger number of users in the network.
