Before the launch of Shibarium, the Shiba Inu layer 2 solution, there were raised expectations of a potential surge in the price of the digital token SHIB. Prior to the initial launch that failed, SHIB surged above the $0.00001 price level on one or two occasions.
However, nothing is currently happening to the digital asset other than an unexpected bearish trend, which makes traders and investors speculate and worry.
In this regard, Lucie, a Shiba Inu development team member, who handles marketing in the ecosystem, has come out to raise the spirit of the noble SHIB enthusiasts with an explanation as to why the second-largest meme token is not trending higher in terms of price, amid the launch and relaunch of Shibarium.
Why Is Shiba Inu (SHIB) Down Right Now?
In a recent tweet, the popular Shiba Inu influencer Lucie said SHIB is currently down since “it rides market waves” as all cryptocurrencies, including the flagship crypto, Bitcoin (BTC).
According to Lucie, the market is a little bumpy at the moment. She urged SHIB investors to set a long-term investment goal as short-term victories don’t usually last.
Lucie tweeted, “Why No Moon? Why $SHIB down? Eh… $SHIB’s unstoppable spirit is real, but it rides the market’s waves too. It’s everywhere! Okay, a little bumpy now, but what about the Bullmarket? Remember, thinking long term matters. Short-term victories fade fast. BE POSITIVE – you’ve come too far to give up now, right?”
