Shiba Inu (SHIB) trading volume surpassed that of Ethereum (ETH) on Sunday

Leveraging on the current green run of the wider crypto market, popular meme coin, Shiba Inu, has posted some interesting figures during its rise to a new ATH.

Shiba traded more than Ethereum

According to data on CoinMarketCap, the daily trading volume of Shiba Inu was able to surpass that of its more illustrious counterpart, Ethereum, yesterday placing it as the third most traded asset on two leading crypto exchanges, Binance and Coinbase.

Per the data, the meme coin trading volume was over $14.5 billion, while that of Ether stood at around $14.3 billion. On the other hand, Tether had a trading volume of $60 billion while the flagship digital asset, Bitcoin, recorded around $26 billion in trading volume.

Interestingly, Shiba Inu also reached a new ATH yesterday after its value rose by 50% within 24 hours. This pushed it to as high as eleventh on the largest crypto asset by market cap though its value has since corrected to $0.000039 as of press time. 

Speaking on the impressive run of the “Doge Killer,” crypto market analyst, Ben Caselin, tied the asset “wild price action” to speculation.

Within the last year alone, SHIB has grown by over 40,000,000% while its value has spiked by more than 435% within the last 30 days, placing it among the best performing digital assets of the year.

900 million Shiba tokens burnt

Meanwhile, data from Watcher.Guru, a leading crypto analytics site has revealed that almost 900 million Shiba tokens were burnt yesterday.

Though its burning mechanism differs greatly from those of other digital assets, it has also been able to contribute to the growth in the price of Shiba Inu as 1% of the meme coin circulation supply is being burnt daily.

The crypto coin made the headlines earlier in the year when it sent 50% of its total supply to Vitalik Buterin, the co-founder of Ethereum, who later donated almost a billion tokens of the meme coin to a foundation in India in efforts to combat coronavirus.

Billionaire investor Mike Novogratz has cautioned that Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell could slow down the crypto market in his second term in office. Commenting on his renomination, Novogratz said Powell could “act more like a central banker than a guy that wants to be reappointed.”

How Jerome Powell’s Second Term as Fed Chair Could Impact Crypto

Billionaire investor Mike Novogratz, CEO of Galaxy Digital, talked about the impact the renomination of Jerome Powell as the Federal Reserve chairman for another term could have on the crypto market on CNBC last week.

President Joe Biden nominated Powell to serve for a second term as Fed chair last week. Powell has overseen the biggest monetary stimulus in U.S. history to help the economy cope with the Covid-19 pandemic and subsequent crisis.

The “macro story has changed a little bit,” Novogratz explained, adding that Powell getting reappointed could allow him “to act more like a central banker than a guy that wants to be reappointed.”

Emphasizing, “We have inflation showing up … in pretty bad ways in the U.S.,” Novogratz opined, “So we can see, is the Fed going to have to move a little faster?” The billionaire fund manager continued:

That would slow all assets down. It would slow the Nasdaq down. It would slow crypto down, if we have to start raising rates much faster than we thought.

Mike Bailey, director of research at FBB Capital Partners, also commented on the effect Powell’s second term in office could have on the crypto industry. He was quoted by Bloomberg last week as saying:

For die-hard crypto bulls, another Powell term may provide some confirmation bias, since these investors often view crypto as a hedge for loose Fed policy.

However, Douglas Boneparth, president of the financial advisory firm Bone Fide Wealth, said that overall there is uncertainty about how markets will react without additional support from the Fed.

Meanwhile, Novogratz remains bullish about the outlook of the crypto industry. He shared:

The amount of institutions Galaxy sees moving into this space is staggering.

“I was on the phone with one of the biggest sovereign wealth funds in the world today, and they’ve made the decision on a go-forward basis to start putting money into crypto,” he detailed. “I’ve had the same conversations with big pension funds in the United States.”

Microstrategy CEO Michael Saylor recently said that bitcoin will grow 100X to become a $100 trillion asset class. A survey by Nickel Digital Asset Management shows that 82% of institutional investors and wealth managers are planning to increase their cryptocurrency exposure between now and 2023. Investment bank Goldman Sachs said in May that fear of missing out (FOMO) is driving institutional investors to bitcoin.
