The TVL of ShibaSwap has more than doubled, as seen in the chart above increasing from $17 million to $36.5 million. There have been multiple developments in the ecosystem. The DeFi platform has witnessed a massive boost in its TVL since November 2022. 

The prices of Shiba Inu ecosystem’s tokens BONE and SHIB have increased more than 30% in the past week. While SHIB Army members await the launch of layer-2 scaling solution Shibarium, the meme coin’s price has skyrocketed 23.6% within a seven-day period from January 31, 2023. 

Shiba Inu bulls gear up to push SHIB higher, anticipating Shibarium launch

Shiba Inu price is in an uptrend since the beginning of 2023. The meme coin’s price climbed consistently, after temporarily trading sideways in the last two weeks of January. As seen in the chart below, the support zone for SHIB begins at $0.00001274 and $0.00001087. 

The meme coin’s price is in an ascending parallel channel and the price attempted to breakout of the upper trend line recently, hitting the bullish target of $0.00001576. The 38.2% Fibonacci retracement level at $0.00001280 is a key support for the Dogecoin-killer token.

Relative Strength Index (RSI), a momentum indicator reveals a bearish divergence and dropped close to the neutral level at 54.02. Shiba Inu’s recent uptrend lacks underlying strength, however bulls could push the meme coin higher if SHIB sustains above $0.00001393. 

A drop below the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement level, or a close below the lower trendline could invalidate the bullish thesis for Shiba Inu.
