Shiba Inu (SHIB) momentarily moved out of its bearish streak that’s been going for the past few weeks on October 25 when the crypto market made a rally to reclaim the $1 trillion market cap turf.
- SHIB increased by 10% between October 25 and the recent price correction

Shiba inu price chart shows another price correction
SHIB’s 12-hour chart shows price trend is SwingingSideways, there’s no consolidation in a bullish area.
Altcoin has seen a 10% increase in value since October 25, but it suffered a sharp correction within the past few hours.
Although its Relative Strength Index, (RSI), was indicating a bullish bias at the time, current prices suggest that it is not.
This minor price crash could cause Shiba Tou to lose its momentum and the crypto may begin to slide again.
It’s also a surprise that Dogecoin’s momentum is no longer helping SHIB right now considering DOGE witnessed a significant price surge just moments after Tesla CEO Elon Musk took over Twitter.
SHIB’s Three Biggest Problems
It was frustrating that Shiba Inu failed repeatedly to gain enough momentum to propel its price higher.
Experts think there are at least three Problems that are standing in the way of SHIB to move even just an inch closer in realizing its developers’ dream to flip Dogecoin.
Its circulating supply remains high-concentrated as over 63% of available SHIB coins are currently held by only 10 wallets. These wallets could have been owned by less than 10 or all 10 persons.
Although Shiba Inu is still limited in its use, it has a significant function as a means of exchanging currency. Altcoin is accepted by only 112 merchants.
The asset’s network development roadmap is also not clear as there is no definite direction for where it is headed.
It’s probably one of the reasons why investors are veering away of the crypto, shifting their focus and resources to assets with well-planned path that ensures ROI and profit.
