The price of Shiba Inu may soon rise. Although the token suffered a 90 percent drop in value during the bear market, the Ethereum whales continue to show great interest in SHIB.
During the downtrend, billions of dollars of SHIB purchases were made. The well-known whale named Gimli added a whole 386 billion shiba inu to his account earlier this week.
Possible reasons for the investments
So where does the renewed interest in SHIB come from? Perhaps the foray into the metaverse could be one reason for this. The developers of Shiba Inu reported last week on the progress of their Metaverse and GameFi projects. As a result, some explanations about the game, which is being developed under the direction of game designer William Volk, could be revealed in the coming days.
