Shiba Inu (SHIB) and Other Cryptocurrencies in the Market

Obviously, the bear market has overwhelmed all cryptocurrencies, including the top two cryptos in the market, Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH).

Bitcoin is now trading at around $20,000, while Ethereum is priced at around $1,200. Some analysts believe that the market could still dip more before recovery.
