Shiba Inu (SHIB) price has spiked by over 30%, signifying a bull run may not be far away.

  • SHIB price surged by over 30% on August 14
  • Shiba Inu trading volume peaked to 700% yesterday; highest since April 12
  • SHIB registers extended period of MDIA which means traders must exercise caution

SHIB price has peaked to as high as $0.00017, which is considerably the highest it has been since May 10. More so, trading volume has also climbed to 700% over the weekend which is the highest registered since April 12.

Shiba Inu network registered a huge uptrend in whale transactions soaring to as much as $100,000 as seen in August trading session. Considerably, around 400 whale transactions were done catapulting to a record-breaking transactions amounting to more than $100,000 that SHIB was able to log in the past few months.

SHIB Daily Chart Shows Premature Bull Run

Judging by the movement of SHIB on the daily chart, it seems that the price spike seen over the weekend is a premature call for a bull run.

With the MFI and RSI chartering the overbought zones, the MACD position isn’t showing any potential bull run. Apparently, there were no intersections seen between the trend lines and MACD that could hint a gigantic uptrend.

According to CoinMarketCap, SHIB is up by 2.72% or trading at $0.00001619 as of this writing. Despite the coin soaring in value overnight, the MVRV for 1D is low at -7.498% which hints that only a few investors gained profit from the price rally yesterday.

On the other hand, the MVRV for 30D is seen to be positive at +28.32%.

SHIB Shows Extended MDIA

Another metric to be considered by investors is the MDIA or Mean Dollar Invested Age which refers to the mean or average of all the tokens and/or coins on the blockchain based on price.

When the MDIA increases, it signifies that the tokens are lying dormant in wallets. An extended period of MDIA uptrend warns that the network is in a lull or stagnant phase which will make it extremely hard to push the price up.

Shiba Inu’s MDIA shows that its MDIA has been stretched for a long time or six months at most. With that being said, traders must always be cautious in taking trading positions because the MDIA indicates that SHIB may fall.

Another dog meme coin, Dogecoin (DOGE) also logged remarkable gains in yesterday’s trading session even without any support from Elon Musk who has been unusually silent about the coin for several months now.

CertiK Uncovers Suspicious $2.4M Payments Into Tornado Cash

Certik Uncovers Suspicious $2.4M Payments Into Tornado Cash
google news
  • The money movement is linked to the October 2021 BXH Exchange breach.
  • GitHub reinstated the Tornado Cash code in “read-only” mode.

On Saturday, crypto security company CertiK said that it had uncovered a suspicious $2.4 million payment into the cryptocurrency mixer Tornado Cash. Information suggests the money movement is connected to the October 2021 BXH Exchange breach. It resulted in a loss of $139 million. Although the U.S. Treasury’s Office of Foreign Asset Control (OFAC) has placed sanctions on the crypto mixer. However, the exchange is still being used to move money.

The theft of over 4,000 ETH worth $139 million from the BXH Exchange at the end of October is likely connected to the transfer of funds.

Hackers Defying Sanctions

The address 0x158F5 is held by a third party and used the Binance Smart Chain and Avalanche staking contract’s privileged method to retrieve staked tokens and withdraw cash. The tokens were then transferred to Ethereum using the address.

CertiK reports that the staking contract holding the funds and locations was previously released by a Telegram group formed by persons affected by the BXH Exchange. Tokens with a bridging ERC-20 standard were converted to ETH at the address in question. To date, almost $2.4 million in value has been transferred into Tornado Cash, represented by 1865 ETH tokens.

Even after the Office of Foreign Asset Control at the U.S. Treasury banned suspicious transactions on Tornado Cash in August, the service is still accepting them. The crypto mixer platform has just received a transfer of 500 thousand DAI from EOA 0x0B789. The money transfer was associated with an exploit in DAO Maker.

After receiving confirmation from the Office of Foreign Asset Control of the United States Treasury, GitHub reinstated the Tornado Cash code in “read-only” mode.

Ripple (Xrp) Price Jumps To New Four-Month High
google news
  • The largest ever buy was on the Bitso crypto market for 54.1 million XRP.
  • XRP prices have increased by around 50% during the last week.

The native XRP token of Ripple has seen the most growth over the previous seven days. While Bitcoin and Ethereum have both had big price declines recently, XRP has seen a sharp increase. The current price increase of XRP may be attributed to a number of factors. Whales hoarding Ripple tokens is one instance.

Tokens worth around $130.2 million in XRP, almost 270M XRP have been transmitted from several cryptocurrency exchanges to many unknown addresses in the past 24 hours, according to data from Whale Alert. The largest ever buy was on the Bitso crypto market for 54.1 million XRP. Approximately $27.5 million worth of XRP coins were purchased by Whale all at once.

High Volatility Expected After Judgement

However, whales have been buying up XRP on the Bitstamp platform to the tune of nearly $84.1 million. To their XRP holdings, whales have just added more than $41.4 million over many trades. Meanwhile, a massive transaction involving 132 million XRP (about $62.1 million) was also spotted by the whale tracker.

Since the SEC and Ripple submitted their summary judgement papers, there has been a dramatic increase in the whale stockpiling of XRP tokens. The current increase was caused by new court documents. It also noted a surge in the number of active addresses holding between 1 and 10 million XRP tokens in late 2022.

On the other hand, XRP prices have increased by around 50% during the last week. Since word of the case’s resolution circulated favorably across the market, this is the result. At this moment, the price of XRP is $0.5015 as per CMC.
