- Shiba Inu has inked a new milestone with thousands of new addresses added.
- The milestones are helping to position SHIB ahead of the Shibarium Launch.
It is quite interesting that within a very short time, Shiba Inu (SHIB) has risen to outstanding heights and also hit several milestones including reaching about 14,000,000 people. In these last few months, the SHIB network has seen unprecedented expansion with 2,538 new SHIB addresses onboarded in one day. Shiba Inu has set a phenomenal milestone in the volume of long-term holders that it currently has.
At the moment, it has hit an all-time high owing to the newly created addresses and increased number of SHIB holders. The dynamics of holders’ composition changed in response to the increased volume of holders. Based on data from Etherscan, the number of SHIB holders is 1,309,548. Of this figure, 70% of SHIB holders have held their token for more than one year and it is safe to regard such investors as long-term holders.
Another 28% have held SHIB tokens within a year and only 2% have had their tokens for about two months.
Additionally, Shiba Inu is doing better than many of its counterparts and has even surpassed several of them. While SHIB has about 70% long-term holders, its closest rival Dogecoin (DOGE) has 69%. For Cardano (ADA), the volume of long-term holders is around 53%. SHIB’s large transactions connected to whales, or large holders who are either buying or selling
SHIB price is currently at $0.0000085, indicating a six-month low although it is also trying to recover. The growth in long-term holders is a clear signal that the community still believes in the token not minding the price decline.
Only a few days ago, Crypto-News Flash reported that the number of transactions completed on the Shiba Inu network has surpassed 10 million. This was amidst several adoption and integration of the network into various platforms like Tangem, NOWPayment and so many others.
Shiba Inu to Launch Shibarium Soon
