Investors are finally losing faith in the Shiba Inu’s long-term decline.
If you are still holding Shiba Inu, then you need to feel the heat. Losses are expected to increase, especially if you bought the coin in the fourth quarter of 2021. This is because the Shiba coin plunged straight into 2022. In fact, cryptanalysts predict that the Shiba Inu trend has fallen by 80% relative to the coin. ATH. The bad news is that Shiba Inu may continue to decline over the next few months, especially if the bear market continues. This is due to observing previous bear market conditions where Shiba Inu was one of the biggest losers. In fact, Shiba’s price is currently down 53% from the past 30 days due to the current bear market. The main reason the Shiba Inu trend is down is the number of mounts they are selling. However, the sheer number of Shiba whales sold is why the currency is falling.
In 2021, Dogecoin killer Shiba Inu was in the spotlight. Shiba Inu is an altcoin created by a pseudonymous entity called Ryoshi in August 2020. Like many other cryptocurrencies, the Shiba Inu name was inspired by a dog breed.

As a token on the Ethereum network, SHIB does not have the same design flexibility as other large cryptocurrencies, which makes it suffer from the challenges of the Ethereum network, such as sky-high fees, which can go as high as $ 30 per transfer. Shiba Inu developers will have to wait until the expected Ethereum update (called the consensus level) to solve these challenges. And it’s unclear when it will launch. Meanwhile, Shiba Inu is looking to expand its capabilities through new projects like Shiberse, an immersive metaverse experience for the SHIB ecosystem. In February, the developers announced Shiba Lands, which will be a virtual real estate available for purchase. But land can only be purchased using a token called Doge Killer (CRYPTO: LEASH), which is not the same as SHIB. And it’s unclear whether this metaverse project will drive SHIB demand, as well as generate hype.

Many cryptocurrencies threaten to replace fiat currencies. But there is still no evidence or speculation that the Shiba Inu will face institutional adoption in the next few years. For the
