Closer Look at Shiba Inu Price Action
Shiba Inu’s price has gained about 44 percent in the last 30 days with its trading volume up over 168 percent in the last 24 hours to $918 million. Interestingly, Shiba Inu has surpassed Dogecoin in 24-hour trading volume, which stands at approximately $863,607,675. Additionally, the Ethereum-based meme coin has surpassed Dogecoin in volatility, which is expected due to their differences in market capitalization.
The huge demand has advised South Korea’s largest crypto exchange Upbit to list Shiba Inu. Notably, Upbit announced on January 18 that it is listing Shiba Inu against Korean Won (KRW).
The Shiba Inu community is also thriving on the launch of a layer 2 scaling solution dubbed the Shibarium network. Notably, the Shibarium blockchain (L2) runs on top of the Ethereum blockchain and uses Shiba Inu’s ecosystem tokens including LEASH and BONE.
The Shibarium network is meant to increase on-chain activity in the Shiba Inu ecosystem as developers build scalable DeFi.

Consequently, Shiba Inu has broken out of the year-long bear market that began at the end of 2021. A further continuation of the Shiba Inu rally could see the asset retest last August’s highs of about $0.000017. However, the rally may not be a full bull market as analysts expect another correction to usher in a multi-week consolidation.
