Over the last 24 hours, the trading volume of Shiba Inu (SHIB) has surged about 23% according to data from Coinmarketcap. Earlier this week, the global crypto market experienced a recovery with flagship crypto, Bitcoin trading as high as $29,000.
However, following a rumor about the United States SEC approving BlackRock’s spot ETF application, the crypto market experienced a sharp dive and the price of Bitcoin dropped by 8%.
Even though this news negatively affected the general market, Shiba Inu benefited as its trading volume spiked over 23%, consequently lifting its position in the global crypto chart.
Before the ranking shift, Shiba Inu was reportedly on the verge of dropping out of the top 20 cryptocurrencies by market capitalization. However, the sharp market slump worked in favor of the trending memecoin thereby lifting it to position 18 just above Chainlink (LINK).
Shiba Inu has always appealed to investors because of its low entry price and dedicated community. Furthermore, the launching of its layer 2 blockchain solution – Shibarium, has propelled the popularity and improved the use case of the altcoin.
Shibarium is projected to welcome lots of dApps (decentralized applications ) which will in turn help to speed up the adoption of web3. Since its launch, Shibarium has experienced unprecedented growth with its number of total transactions approaching 3.5 million, according to data from Shibariumscan.
Regarded as one of the most volatile cryptocurrencies in the market due to its meme nature, Shiba Inu has grown in popularity and value since its launch. Over the years, it has grown in ranking reaching #13 on the crypto chart at some point before dropping. On the other hand, its closest rival Dogecoin still seems to perform better, currently sitting at #9 on the global crypto chart.
