Shiba Inu remains to be an undisputed king among the top 1000 ETH whales’ rich list. Latest data shows that the top 1000 ETH whales now own 48 trillion Shiba Inu coins worth $2.3 billion. The top 1000 ETH whales hold 14.79% of all Shiba Inu and FTX token comes at a distant second with 5.25%, reported WhaleStats.
Whales started taking entry position in SHIB during the last week of July and the trend has continued till November. The dog-themed token has delivered the desired results overtime and is selling like hot cake in the market. Even whales have been bitten by the ‘fear of missing out’ bug and have remained invested in SHIB.
Only a handful of whales have sold their holding and jumped ship while the majority of whales are holding on. Whales have made good use of the recent dips by adding bag loads of SHIB to their respective portfolios. In addition, the whales have increased their SHIB assets by 42% in the last 24 hours.
The whales took entry position hours before Kraken listed Shiba Inu and reaped all the gains it had to offer. In addition, whales saw their portfolio shoot +30% after the Kraken listing delivering good results in just a few hours.
Moreover, just prior to the Kraken listing, a whale purchased 24 billion Shiba Inu coins worth a staggering $110 million. Hours later, the token headed north to +30% giving the whale value for every buck.
Also, on November 23, a Shiba Inu whale purchased 850 billion coins worth $36 million during the dip. On November 17, a first-time SHIB investor whale picked up 170 billion SHIB coins worth $8 million during the dip.
The recent whale movements give rise to questions such as, ‘Do whales know something which the common investor doesn’t?’
