Two different Shiba Inu whales move nearly 35 billion tokens in 24 hours, according to recent data from Etherscan. Large transactions of SHIB were recorded exchanging hands on April 12, 2023. The transfers occurred at a time when SHIB was down nearly 4% on Wednesday, as its price hovered around $0.00001084.

The first whale moved 10 billion SHIB in two different transactions minutes apart from each other. The whale sent 10.37 billion tokens each from a Coinbase wallet to a different wallet address.

The second whale transferred 11 billion tokens and moved another 2.1 billion SHIB hours apart, from another Coinbase wallet. Overall, the transfers combinedly stood close to 35 billion tokens in the last 24 hours.

The reason for the abrupt transfers from a Coinbase wallet to a different wallet address remains to be unknown. The identities of the whales are also anonymous and unconfirmed if it’s an individual investor or an entity.

Whales have been shuffling Shiba Inu tokens into various wallet addresses this year after accumulating them in 2021-22. However, it is not known if they dumped the 35 billion tokens and booked profits by jumping ship.
