Although there is a mix of factors that have likely contributed to Shiba Inu’s rally, the growing developer activity on the blockchain network has made a particularly positive impact.
According to Kaiko, SHIB rose more than 25% “since July 1st following a wave of developer activity on the network,” the digital asset data provider said on August 9.
Shibarium upgrade, a potential SHIB price catalyst

Overall, the event is set to make Shiba Inu a more viable cryptocurrency for a wider range of use cases. As a result, this could lead to increased demand for SHIB and a potential fresh price breakout.
