Shiba Inu And Polygon Race It Out In Market Cap Amidst Exploding Ecosystem Activity
Like the rest of the crypto market, Shiba Inu has experienced a slump in value in recent months. It lost over 30% of its value in the past week. However, things might be looking up for the asset as it continues to maintain footing in the top-15 crypto rankings.
The asset faced two huge dips last two weeks’ Friday and Saturday, faltering about 16% and 7%, respectively. However, the week saw the memecoin gain around 10%, moving from $0.00002051 at the close of Saturday to $0.00002245 on Sunday.
The wave in price was also correlated with an increase in market cap enough to see Shiba Inu overtake Polygon’s MATIC in CoinMarketCap”s ranking before getting reflipped. Shiba Inu posted about $12.3 billion on the day compared to Polygon’s just above $12 billion, an almost $300 million difference.
Shiba Inu recently sat at 15th in the rankings, with an $11.6 billion market valuation, while Polygon was just overhead at 14th. Shiba Inu still has to close the gap with Dogecoin, which occupied 10th place on the rankings with a market cap of over $18 billion.
Polygon’s rise against Shiba Inu has been attributed to institutions taking advantage of recent price dips to purchase large quantities of the token. At the time, the Polygon network had a flurry of positive news, including YouTube’s head of Gaming Ryan Wyatt leaving the video-sharing platform to join the team at Polygon.
Currently, the risk appetite of market participants seems unclear, and as such, more price volatility is likely to be in the cards for the Shiba Inu token. Despite recent market dips, Shiba Inu is still up over 40,000%, making it one of the best-performing assets in the past year.
Shiba Inu Price Is Expected To Reach These Levels
Looking at the Shiba Inu price chart, we see that SHIB has started the current week on a fairly positive note. If the current sentiment persists, we could see SHIB push to $0.000022. However, if sellers manage to retake the session, we could see the price drop to $0.000020.
