Shiba Inu Continues To Decline As Whales Start Taking Profits

DOGE’s cousin coin, SHIB, has been struggling this month as it tumbles down for a straight third week. Over the past seven days alone, the memecoin has lost more than 17% in value.

In the month of October, Shiba Inu had an amazing rally even by crypto standards where at one point the crypto was up 1000% over the previous 30 days.

During this rally, SHIB entered into the top ten crypto by market cap list for a while. And briefly, it even surpassed DOGE to claim the 8th spot on the list.

However, since November began, the coin started to lose ground, and has since continued to decline. It wasn’t long until Shiba Inu fell below Dogecoin again, and soon after it also exited the top ten list entirely.

Currently, SHIB is the number twelve crypto in terms of market cap. Here is a table that shows how it compares with DOGE:

The reason behind the coin’s recent downtrend may be the fact that whales have started to sell. As per an article by Coindesk, SHIB transactions with values above $100k have been increasing since the beginning of the month.
