The LunarCrush findings reflected some of Shiba Inu’s metrics. For example, it maintained healthy social dominance and has been quite active during the last four weeks. Similarly, investor confidence has been on the rise judging by the steady uptick in its weighted sentiment.
SHIB’s bullish price action encounters resistance
Shiba Inu’s ranking and network performance also reflects the state of its native token. While most of the top cryptos have been experiencing sideways activity, SHIB’s price action has maintained a bullish bias in the last four weeks.
For example, it peaked at $0.00000845 during Friday’s trading session. SHIB’s price action previously experienced resistance after pushing up to the same range within the last six weeks.
SHIB’s MFI has already pivoted, suggesting that it was experiencing some outflows at press time. This is likely due to profit taking as it neared its aforementioned short-term resistance. Despite that, it is still holding on to relative strength as the RSI bounced back from its 50% level.
As noted earlier, there has been a slowdown in activity across the crypto market. However, this may not have had as much of an impact on Shiba Inu, especially when we consider that SHIB managed to rally even though the number of active addresses dropped considerably.
The last 24 hours were characterized by a surge in daily active addresses after previously dropping to its lowest level in the last four weeks. However, the same observation could signify a surge in sell pressure courtesy of the recent resistance retest.
