Not only that. The number of transactions recorded so far on Shibarium has also been on a tear since Shibarium's launch and now sits at nearly 4 million transactions processed so far.

But Why? Why The Sudden Surge?

There might have been an "unlikely" reason for why Shibarium metrics are surging, and it isn't something you might expect.

This reason may be $BONE.

BONE, the most popular cryptocurrency on Shibarium, for paying transaction fees. According to data from TradingView, BONE started the final quarter of the year on a bearish note and has remained so ever since.

In fact, Bone, According to CoinMarketCap, has lost more than 98% of its value since hitting an all-time high.

At the time of writing, BONE now trades at about $0.6118.

But How Is This Connected?

Think about it:

Lower prices on BONE mean that the transaction fees on Shibarium are negligible. In essence, customers now have a cheaper way to move money around, without having to worry about outrageous charges.

Interestingly, the previous peak in the number of transactions on Shibarium came in at 34,673 transactions on 21 November.

How Is Bone Faring (In The Charts)?

Bone, in the charts, presents an interesting price scenario.

Aside from losing a massive amount of its original value in a series of back-and-forth movements above and below the $1 mark, BONE displays an impressive property.

After deathly price declines that span months, BONE always finds support around $0.6 and rallies right back up as shown above.

This series of back and forths has also created a descending triangle formation of sorts, leading us to believe that if $0.6 doesn't break this time around, we might see a 167% price explosion to $1.62.

Conversely, if we do see a price decline from $0.6, BONE will inevitably decline to $0.26.
