The big transactions metrics track the daily trades for $100,000 or more on a blockchain network.

Similarly, the Shiba Inu network’s declining tendency in the new-user acquisition is a possible source of concern.
The Shiba Inu pricing has been attempting to rebound from yesterday’s 3.7% drop during the last 24 hours. The second most popular meme coin is currently up 2% on the Binance exchange. SHIB is currently trading back in the $0.00001094 level, where it has been for the past week.
