This can be good news for SHIB
Though SHIB’s weekly chart was painted green, the meme coin’s price did not seem to correspond well with these updates. As per CoinMarketCap, SHIB’s price declined by 3% in the last 24 hours, and at press time, it was trading at $0.000008385 with a market capitalization of over $4.6 billion.
Investors might still have reasons to look forward to better days, as a few on-chain metrics were in SHIB’s favor. For instance, SHIB’s MVRV ratio registered an uptick over the past week, which was a positive signal.
Positive sentiments around SHIB also spiked, reflecting the community’s trust and faith in the meme coin. The total number of transactions has increased by 2.73% compared to 5 January, which was optimistic.
CryptoQuant’s data revealed that SHIB’s net deposits on exchanges were low compared to the last seven days, which was also bullish as it indicated less selling pressure. However, the network growth, after going up, registered a steep decline.
