Shiba Inu Enters Accumulation Zone Amid 493% In Shibarium Transaction Fees

The current Shiba Inu price action might be leaving some investors wanting, particularly as the crypto has now extended its 30-day losses by over 30%. However, recent on-chain data and technical analysis indicate that the patience is about to pay off. To be more specific, the current price downturn has seen Shiba Inu entering the accumulation zone, which could signal the start of the next bull run. At the same time, a concurrent 493% increase in transaction fees within the Shibarium network suggests it could be the ideal time for investors to load up.

Shiba Inu Price Hits 100-Day Low As Bears Take Control

The past few weeks have been a bloodbath for Shiba Inu (SHIB) holders. After rebounding at the $0.000022 support and spiking briefly to reach $0.00002756 in the last week of May, the popular meme coin has plunged over 30%, briefly crashing below $0.000017 this week. This brutal selloff has dragged SHIB to a 100-day low, wiping out billions from its market cap.

Experts have blamed this fall on investors pulling out of meme coins. Shiba Inu wasn’t left out, as the meme coin also witnessed major transfers to crypto exchanges.

From the price side of things, SHIB’s decline means traders now have the opportunity to buy at its current low prices, which may herald the reversal of the bearish trend. You would think with SHIB’s price taking a beating lately, activity on the network would be slowing down. Surprisingly, that’s not the case at all. 

Recent data from Shibariumscan indicates that transaction fees on the Shibarium layer-2 network have skyrocketed by 493% last week. The massive surge in transaction fees came from increased transaction activity on the network. Notably, the number of new transactions moved from 5,865 at the beginning of the week to 16,337 at the end of the week, a 178% increase. 

Although transaction fees on Shibarium are paid in BONE tokens, a portion of the tokens are converted into SHIB and then burned. This, in turn, reduces the amount of SHIB tokens in circulation.

What’s Next For SHIB?

At the time of writing, SHIB is trading at $0.00001702 and seems to be consolidating. Experts are now divided into different schools of thought about the future of meme coins, including SHIB. According to Ki Young Ju, CEO of CryptoQuant, the current downtrend suggests meme coin dominance in the altcoin market could finally be over.

On the other hand, analyst Javon Marks believes Shiba Inu still has room to break to the upside, and the recent pullback could also be a contributing factor. Marks asserts that Shiba Inu is still up by 100% since its last bullish wave and it has the potential to go up by another 294%. Price targets are at $0.000081 and $0.0001553.
