The fears for Shiba Inu have increased because of the recent freefall of Terra Luna and the price of Luna from trading at over $80 fell to zero. But there are some differences

  • Terra was a blockchain project that had fundamental issues with the USD peg which was attacked by speculators. Still, despite the huge setback, Terra developers launched a new version of the Luna token in order to save the interest of the investors
  • Shiba Inu on the other hand is a meme coin that is evolving into something else to the surprise of many.

Ironically Luna Classic holders have been replicating the strategy of Shiba Inu holders and building a community to burn Luna Classic. As a consequence, $LUNC too had a decent weekend when compared to other major cryptocurrencies, just like Shib.
