Shiba Inu has reached new highs in long-term holders, according to IntoTheBlock, an emerging on-chain analytics firm. IntoTheBlock categorizes addresses based on their asset holding duration, dividing them into hodlers, traders, and scalpers.
Hodlers are addresses that hold assets for over a year, representing long-term investors. Traders engage in holding periods ranging from a month to twelve months, making them mid-term traders or swing traders. Scalpers are those who hold an asset for less than a month, engaging in short-term speculation.
Currently, hodlers make up 74%, the highest percentage ever for Shiba Inu. Traders and scalpers account for 24% and 2% respectively.
The Shiba Inu ecosystem continues to expand, with new use cases ranging from gaming to Metaverse to real-world utility. These new use cases may have played a significant role in the continuous growth of long-term holders, as they may want to hold onto their assets to benefit from these use cases.
