Leading on-chain metrics Santiment was the first to dish out the whale accumulation spree. “Shiba Inu had a mini decoupling from other altcoins over the weekend and is up a modest +5% in the past 48 hours. Holders will be pleased with the fact that non-exchange whales continue accumulating, while exchange whale bags are shrinking,” read the tweet.

Despite being on the back foot since Q2, investors and whales have not given up on SHIB. The token largely attracts investors even when the market is down and receives a barrage of new and first-time investors when the markets go up. Only a handful of cryptocurrencies experience this kind of buying spree on all the market’s up and down seasons.
