Per the report, the aforementioned number of burns were carried out across 269 transactions with a monthly burn rate of 61.57%.

Even though the increase in the Shiba Inu burn rate is a good sign, it might not be enough to cover up for the price drop it has been experiencing since the previous month.

The value of the token dropped by over 13% throughout January. After peaking at $0.00001994 on December 17, 2023, the price of Shiba Inu has been on a steady decline. Selling across the broader market prompted SHIB to lose the $0.00001 support, adding a zero to its price and causing the present falls.

Positive price upswing in sight

Despite the drop in the price of SHIB, there might be light at the end of the tunnel. Popular crypto analyst Ali shed some light on this. According to him, the purchase signal has been flashed by the TD Sequential indicator, which has shown to be very accurate in predicting Shiba Inu price moves.

As a result, SHIB might be gearing up for a potential price uptick. He urged traders to watch out for the price of the token as it might climb to $0.010 and subsequently $0.011.
