Shiba broke past a key resistance over the weekend
Several developments are helping Shiba Inu
SHIB is gearing to go higher, but before then, a correction could occur
Shiba Inu SHIB/USD was a top trending cryptocurrency on Monday. Momentum has been building for the cryptocurrency signaling increased buyer interest. The Monday jump takes SHIB above a key resistance as more investors circle.
Several developments could explain the breakout in SHIB. One is the expected Shibarium TestNet. Previously, developers said that the anticipated Shibarum Public Beta testNet was set for launch in Q3 2022. The quarter ends in September. However, the community remained optimistic that the Testnet upgrade was set to launch between August 15 and 21.
Another development that sparked interest in SHIB is the upcoming online game. Also known as Shiba Eternity, the game promises to help Shiba Inu shed its meme tag. To some other extent, Shiba Inu is also believed to be fueled by gains in Ethereum. Shiba Inu is Ethereum-based, and the anticipated shift to Proof-of-Stake may boost the token. The move is expected sometime in September. SHIB investors could be reading between the lines ahead of the upgrade.
