Shiba Inu v. Avalanche, meme coin beats layer-1 smart contract

Shiba Inu price exploded with massive 16% gains overnight. There are two key factors driving Shiba Inu’s price rally. Large scale burn of Shiba Inu tokens and the release of Shiba Eternity game. Shytoshi Kusama, the project lead for Shiba Inu, recently invited users to review the game.

The NFT card game was launched for players in Vietnam and YouTube was flooded with review videos and feedback for Shiba Eternity. The collectible card game is a launch in the series of launches in Shiba Inu’s expansion to the metaverse. The announcement of the game fueled a bullish sentiment among holders, pushing Shiba Inu price higher. 

Shiba Inu’s price rally resulted in an increase in the meme coin’s market capitalization. Shiba Inu therefore left Avalanche to bite the dust and now ranks 12th in market capitalization, according to CoinGecko. 

711 million Shiba Inu tokens burnt in a week

Shiba Inu is on a massive burning spree as 711 million SHIB tokens were destroyed within a week. Burn rate climbed up 824%, and 292 million SHIB tokens were burned, shifted to dead wallets in the last 24 hours. 

An increase in Shiba Inu burn is driving the meme coin’s value higher. A reduction in Shiba Inu tokens in circulation is conducive to higher value for the remaining SHIB tokens. 

Shiba Inu price to continue its extended rally?

Analysts have a bullish outlook on Shiba Inu and predict a continuation of the meme coin’s uptrend. Azeez Mustafa, a crypto analyst, argues that Shiba Inu price is rising against Bitcoin. SHIB price recently hit the upper boundary of a channel as it continued its climb towards resistance at 0.00000000080 (80 Satoshis). 

Crossing this resistance could push SHIB closer to the next resistance at 0.00000000085 (85 Satoshis).
