Three Signs That Point to Possible Shiba Inu Price Surge

SHIB’s price has struggled for most of 2023. Since January, the token has only rallied by about 28%. Memecoins, in general, have taken a back seat this year. Dogecoin (DOGE), SHIB’s main rival, rallied by just over 32% in the same time frame. Other altcoins, on the other hand, have shown better performance. Solana (SOL), for example, has rallied by over 1000% since January 2023.

However, things may change for the popular memecoin very soon. If the crypto market enters another bull run next year, Shiba Inu (SHIB) may see a meteoric rise in its price. Moreover, the team is working on several new initiatives for the SHIB ecosystem. The initiative will focus on increasing burns and pushing for more adoption. The project also launched its layer-2 network earlier this year. Although the launch did not propel SHIB’s price immediately, it could lead to more applications on the SHIB network.
