SHIB Rises By 22% As $1.5B Enters Meme Coin’s Market Cap

After witnessing a major drop in 2022, interest in SHIB is increasing again. The token has recorded high capital inflow which has pushed it to the 12th largest crypto by market capitalization. 

SHIB has now displaced AVAX which was formerly at the 12th position. SHIB’s comeback has corresponded with broader advances in the cryptocurrency market, which have been fuelled by major assets like Bitcoin and Ethereum.

Shiba Inu’s Market Cap Adds $1.53 Billion

On the 14th of August, the token’s market valuation entered $8.49 billion. As per CoinMarketCap, it gained over $1.53 billion in the past 24 hours. 

Meanwhile, the capital inflow was reflected in the currency’s trading price. As of the time of writing, it increased by over 22% in the past 24 hours to over $0.0000156.

In the past, major assets such as BTC have been recognized to set patterns that altcoins imitate. Bitcoin crossed the $25,000 barrier for the first time on August 14, impacting the general market.

Although Shiba Inu’s profits depend partially on the overall market, it is important to note that network activity has given the currency a comparative advantage. 

The developers have concentrated on launching further token burns to foster adoption. ShibaSwap’s debut in 2021 was also considered a major factor pushing the price of SHIB in the next months.
