Burn Rate Surges 16,854%, Trading Volume Rises 170%

Shiba Inu (SHIB) has begun July on a positive note, with several on-chain metrics painting a bullish signal for the second-largest meme coin by market cap. These bullish developments could provide the much-needed turnaround for the meme coin, which had a June to forget

SHIB’s Burn Rate Surges By 16,854%

Data from the burn tracking website Shibburn shows that Shiba Inu’s burn rate spiked by over 16,854% in the last 24 hours, with over 300 million Shiba Inu tokens burned during this period. This is massive for the meme coin, given the positive impact the token burns have on its price. These token burns help decrease SHIB’s circulating supply, which ultimately drives up its price, especially if the demand for the meme coin is on the rise.

Interestingly, on-chain data shows that the demand for Shiba Inu is rising, with investors regaining their bullish sentiment towards the meme coin and looking to add to their positions. This is based on data from the Market Intelligence platform IntoTheBlock, which shows that the concentration metric has turned bullish, meaning that Shiba Inu whales and investors are adding to their positions. 

The demand for Shiba Inu is also evident in its spot and derivatives trading volume, which have spiked since the beginning of this month. Data from CoinMarketCap shows that over $191 million in SHIB was traded in the last 24 hours. Additionally, data from Coinglass shows that SHIB’S derivatives trading volume has surged by 170% in the last 24 hours. 

The increased demand for Shiba Inu is also significant, considering how much the meme coin declined in June due to the Shiba Inu whales who offloaded a considerable amount of their holdings. The meme coin also took a severe hit in June because of its strong positive price correlation with Bitcoin. 

However, Shiba Inu is expected to enjoy a price recovery as the flagship crypto is rebounding nicely. History also suggests that this month will be bullish for the meme coin, with data from Cryptorank showing that SHIB has ended the last two Julys in the green. 

Shiba Inu Bullish Fundamentals

Coinbase Derivatives is already finalizing plans to list the first-ever US-regulated Shiba Inu futures contract. The crypto exchange revealed in its filing to the Commodity Trading Futures Commission (CFTC) that it plans to list SHIB’s future contacts on or after July 15. This move is bullish as it could help expand the meme coin’s adoption, especially among institutional investors.

Furthermore, listing a regulated futures market for SHIB could also set the stage for the launch of a Shiba Inu Spot ETF. Bloomberg analysts James Seyffart and Eric Balchunas have hinted at different times that the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is unlikely to approve a Spot crypto ETF without a regulated futures market.
