SHIB price was marginally down in early trading on Tuesday, losing 0.6% in 24 hours as the token struggled to make the most out of a social media buzz and an online petition to get it listed on Robinhood.
Push to list on Robinhood
Sources report that Robinhood will soon list Shiba Inu’s SHIB currency. So, what’s the big deal about the SHIB currency being listed on Robinhood? Retail investors looking to acquire exposure to well-known crypto names continue to use the brokerage platform in droves. SHIB’s price is expected to rise in response to a positive action by Robinhood towards the petition. This increases the possibility of a bull run in coming days.
We should remember that Dogecoin investors often turn to Robinhood as their go-to site. During the meme stock craze of 2020, the trading app became popular, and Dogecoin rose to prominence as a result. Holders of SHIB tokens are therefore eager to get in on the fun. The community has asked Robinhood’s leaders to think about including Shiba Inu on the platform so that users of the trading app can trade the meme coin as well.
Meanwhile, statistics tracking website Santiment has seen a spike in SHIB coin whale transactions exceeding $100,000 in the last 48 hours, which is normally a bullish signal for SHIB.
