Despite a small increase in the value of Shiba Inu (SHIB) over the previous week, it has continued to experience a fall in the number of holders of the DeFi token, prompting traders to speculate if interest in the asset is currently on the slide.

In particular, the estimated price indicates a $0.00001128 (+42.41%) increase from the DeFi asset’s current value.
Meanwhile, the votes of 21,848 community members for the end of May established a slightly lower target than April’s, predicting that SHIB will trade at $0.00003224 +$21.18% on the price of the dog coin at the time of publication.

Notably, the number of unique addresses on the network steadily increased until March 17, when it suddenly dropped significantly, losing 32,832 holders in a single day.
Shiba Inu may be seeing a decline in demand due to a move to ApeCoin (APE), a new crypto phenomenon that is attracting over 1,700 new investors on average every day.
In fact, the debut of the Bored Ape Yacht Club’s cryptocurrency matched the start of the SHIB’s drop in its number of holders.
