Shiba Inu (SHIB) wipes out over $7 billion within a week as volatility continues

Meme cryptocurrency Shiba Inu (SHIB) continues to undergo a week of heightened volatility losing $7.26 billion from its market cap over the period. As of November 3, the market cap was at $35.14 billion plunging to $27.88 billion at the time of writing.

The coin that has experienced unprecedented success this year was also trading at $0.000048, having dropped 10% in the last 24 hours while the seven-day losses stand at 21%.
