Shibarium Transactions Reflects Growth
As of September 2023, Shibarium had completed a modest 3 million transactions. However, the latest figures reveal a staggering surge of over 9,000% in transaction volume within four months. The network has been integrated with major cryptocurrency players such as Gate.io, further propelling its growth.

Despite its impressive transaction volume, on-chain data from DeFiLlama shows that Shiba Inu’s Shibarium total value locked (TVL) is around $833,000.
SHIB Reverses Trend, Sees Positive Movement
This noteworthy network growth coincides with a substantial trandfer from a wallet reportedly linked to Justin Sun, the founder of Tron. LookOnChain said the wallet withdrew assets totaling $4.47 million from Binance, including 79.33 billion SHIB valued at approximately $752,000.
The arket sentiment often turns bullish when investors initiate withdrawals from exchanges. Such actions signal a reluctance to part with digital assets, indicating a strong commitment to holding positions.
Indeed, the SHIB token experienced a noteworthy reversal, recording gains in the last 24 hours following recent losses. According to pricing data from BeInCrypto, SHIB’s price currently trades around $0.00000946, reflecting a 2.3% uptick within the past 24 hours.
This positive movement marks a significant shift from the previous downward trend. Over the past seven days, the token declined 3.8%. Furthermore, it registered an 8.2% drop in the last 30 days and a 17.5% decrease over the past year. Despite this price action, the current uptick suggests a potential breakout for the token.
