Despite this drop, the token’s burn rate increased by 2,814%, with 7,912,388 SHIB tokens recently destroyed, significantly up from about 200,000 tokens earlier. This increase in burning activity is primarily attributed to three major wallets, each contributing over a million SHIB to the burn. The largest wallet alone burned 4,320,587 SHIB. This surge in burning has resulted in a total of over 410 trillion SHIB being removed from circulation.

SHIB Price Analysis 

On March 4, Shiba Inu hit its highest price since November 2021, reaching $0.000045, marking a 400% increase from its February low of $0.000009. However, the price quickly declined, dropping 60% to $0.000018 by April 13.

Shiba Inu rebounded at the 0.618 Fibonacci retracement level, gaining 52% from the April low. Despite these gains, the bearish trend seemed intact, though signs of a potential uptrend were emerging.

Since April, SHIB’s price has consistently stayed above $0.000021 without dipping to lower lows. The daily chart’s Relative Strength Index (RSI) has stabilized above 40% after falling to 34% on April 13 and is now sitting at 37%, indicating that SHIB is more undervalued. 

As of May 29, the price increased to nearly  $0.000030, but it made a downturn with two possibilities ahead. 

If SHIB can sustain the upward momentum, it might aim for a new high, potentially reaching $0.000060. However, for a confirmed uptrend, SHIB must form a bullish structure with a higher low and higher high.

Until such a pattern is confirmed, there is still a risk of a further decline, with a potential downside target at $0.000015.
