Furthermore, the report disclosed that the most traded assets by all customers were BTC, USDT, SHIB, WRX, ETH, TRX, DOGE, and MATIC. SHIB remains popular among Indian crypto traders. WazirX’s 2021 report revealed that SHIB was the most traded asset among men on the exchange last year, with BTC being the favorite among women.

SHIB’s Increasing Popularity in India

Shiba Inu is seeing an exponential adoption rate within the Indian cryptocurrency scene as its popularity skyrockets among Indian traders. In October, it was revealed that SHIB is the most traded token in the Indian cryptocurrency market.

At the same time, WazirX noted that Shiba Inu singlehandedly accounts for about 10% of trading activities on the platform. CoinDCX, another top Indian exchange, revealed that 5% of trades on its platform are related to SHIB.

Besides Indian traders, SHIB is also popular among investors in other jurisdictions, as it was recently revealed that SHIB is the sixth-largest asset held by the top 100 ETH whales. The Crypto Basic has also highlighted numerous recent transactions involving SHIB whale accumulations, the latest of which involved 1.9 trillion SHIB.

Meanwhile, SHIB has not escaped the recent onslaught within the markets, having dipped by 9.82% in the past week, as it currently changes hands at $0.000008356. The asset has plummeted by 3.74% in the past 24 hours.
