It indicates a growing interest among investors and increased market liquidity. It is no surprise that the 38% increase from last month’s peak network activity has been followed by a double-digit price rally.

The aggregate order books is another vital on-chain chart currently pointing towards an increase in demand for SHIB. As depicted below, SHIB traders have placed active buy-orders for 6.8 trillion tokens.

SHIB Price Prediction: Potential Downswing toward $0.000005?  

Based on the current on-chain data trends, Shiba Inu will likely experience a further price upswing toward $0.00001 in the coming days. 

The Global In/Out of the Money (GIOM) chart, which depicts the entry price distribution of current SHIB holders, also supports this bullish narrative. It, however, depicts that Shiba Inu could experience significant resistance at $0.00009 could trigger a retracement.

As illustrated below, 373,360 addresses purchased 251.51 trillion SHIB at a maximum price of $0.00008. Considering this is the largest support cluster above the current prices, they will likely pose strong resistance.

But if the network activity keeps growing, Shiba Inu’s price could rise further to reclaim $0.00001.

Alternatively, the bears could negate that bearish prediction if Shiba Inu’s price dips to $0.00006. But that currently seems far fetch, as 227,480 addresses are holding 83.2 trillion SHIB bought at the average price of $0.000006. If they hold their positions, SHIB’s price will likely rebound. 

But if that support level caves, Shiba Inu’s price could retrace toward the $0.00005 range.
