Data from WhaleStats show that Shiba Inu whales have dumped nearly 1.5 trillion SHIB tokens in the last 36 hours. SHIB was once the most held token among the top 100 ETH rich list fell to the fourth position on Tuesday after the large sell-offs.
Whales have sold nearly $20 million worth of SHIB in two days which constitutes 1.5 trillion tokens. The large dumps came at a time when Shiba Inu briefly spiked 3% on Monday and whales booked their profits. Even a brief rise makes whales’ portfolios swell into millions of dollars in profits.
However, whales are expected to be back into the SHIB fold again as the top 100 ETH rich list has routinely purchased the token after every sell-off. The whales are most likely to take an entry position in the next slump and make use of the dips.
The dog-themed token is trading in the red today showing no signs of bullish sentiments. The overall market conditions are weak today as both Bitcoin and Ethereum are trading on a razor’s edge.
