Crypto Exchange Bitstamp Lists Shiba Inu Coin (SHIB)

This week, crypto exchange Bitstamp announced the listing of Shiba Inu Coin (SHIB).

According to the announcement,

“Among all the serious crypto projects with their serious tokens and coins, there are some that present the dogs of the world. SHIBA INU is one such project which started out as utterly light-hearted, boasting a pretty dog picture of a dog, but now has an incredibly large and vibrant community behind it.”

The announcement went on to say that full trading will be available once the order books gather sufficient liquidity. At that point, Bitstamp will,

“Enable all order types and card purchases for the new trading pairs as well.”

The new trading pairs are SHIB/EUR and SHIB/USD.

For now, users in Singapore and the US, however, will not be able to purchase SHIB.

Technical Indicators

SHIB will need to move through the $0.00001070 pivot to target the First Major Resistance Level at $0.00001120.

Broader market sentiment would need to improve to support a return to $0.000011.

In the event of an extended rally, SHIB should test the Second Major Resistance Level at $0.00001168 and resistance at $0.00001170. The Third Major Resistance Level sits at $0.00001266.

Failure to move through the pivot would bring the First Major Support Level at $0.00001022 into play. Barring an extended sell-off throughout the day, SHIB should avoid sub-$0.000010 levels. The Second Major Support Level at $0.0000097.
