SHIB trading in range
After rising over 36% on Aug. 14 and hitting $0.00001768, the second biggest canine crypto has been moving in a range, trading around the $0.00001610 zone, alternating between support and resistance.
Earlier today, influencer David Gokhshtein, who is also a former U.S. congressional candidate and founder of Gokhshtein Media platform, tweeted that he expects Shiba Inu to make another move soon.
In March this year, he announced that the coin may reach the $0.001 level, but he does not see it hitting $1.
