It is unclear who the wallet owner is. Robinhood is one of the largest SHIB holders out there, possessing about 36.745 trillion tokens, valued at over $300 million. It is possible that the exchange is moving its holdings within its own wallets. It is also possible that a SHIB whale is moving assets away from the exchange to hold for the long term.

Relocating assets away from exchanges is regarded as bullish since it lessens the market’s pressure to sell. Moving assets to an exchange suggests that the owner might choose to sell them.

Shiba Inu (SHIB) has undergone a significant price decline over the last few days, falling below $0.000018 for the first time since March. SHIB is down 3.6% in the daily charts, 17.5% in the weekly charts, and over 30% in the previous month. The latest price correction could be due to Bitcoin (BTC) falling below $64,000. BTC miners have been selling their holdings as the price of mining one BTC surpassed the $86,000 level. The lack of fresh capital has also negatively affected the market.
