YEREVAN ( – Shiba Inu (SHIB) caught the Bitcoin-led recovery wave as it rose 14% intraday to $0.00001228 on May 30. However, the token risks a 50% price slash based on a bearish setup.

Descending triangle selloff ahead?

Shiba Inu has formed a bearish continuation setup, dubbed the “Descending Triangle,” on its four-hour chart. The pattern entails flat support and a descending resistance trendline that had capped the bullish attempts since mid-May.

SHIB burning in full swing

Meanwhile, data from the tracking platform Shibburn shows that over 2.41 Billion SHIB tokens were burned in the past week with 236 separate transactions.

Moreover, the same source confirmed that Shiba Inu bulls took nearly 97 million tokens out of circulation in the previous 24 hours. In detail, the team behind SHIB created the ShibBurn portal after “deriving inspiration” from Ethereum creator Vitalik Buterin. The latter burnt a whopping $6.7 billion SHIB in mid-May 2021.
