New data from market analytics platform Santiment reveals that mid size crypto investors have been scooping up Shiba Inu (SHIB) at a rapid rate over the last two months.
“Shiba Inu has been a surprise winner during the final hours of a particularly dull trading week. Shark and dolphin wallets holding 10 million-100 billion SHIB tokens have accumulated ~$9 million in just under eight weeks, a significant amount for the 14th-ranked crypto asset.”
Recently, the Shiba Inu ecosystem has seen new additions, such as the public release of a beta bridge associated with the project’s highly anticipated layer-2 scaling solution, Shibarium.
The beta bridge, which launched a few days ago, allows users to transfer tokens between Shibarium and the leading smart contract platform Ethereum (ETH).
As stated by Lucie, Shiba Inu’s marketing specialist,
“[The bridge] enables users to transfer tokens between the two networks without any third-party risks or impact on market liquidity. The network bridge is designed to be fast, cost-effective, and flexible, and also serves as a scaling solution.”
Previously, Lucie had detailed how Shibarium could impact the price of Bone ShibaSwap (BONE), its gas fee token, and SHIB itself.
According to Lucie, Shibarium’s reduced gas fees will likely raise the price of BONE while the project’s deflationary mechanism would reduce the supply of SHIB, theoretically increasing its price.
SHIB is trading for $0.0000867 at time of writing while BONE is worth $1.47.Don't Miss a Beat – Subscribe to get email alerts delivered directly to your inbox
