The meme tokens are the worst hit category of the Cryptocurrency market affected by the recent crash. However, the biggest Ethereum (ETH) whales have taken the advantage of this recent dip. In this bid, Shiba Inu (SHIB) has emerged as the top choice of these whales.
ETH whales accumulate SHIB
Dog themed meme coins that rose to fame last year haven’t shown much growth this year. SHIB token which was crowned the most searched crypto of 2021 over Bitcoin (BTC) has dropped by miserably. Shiba Inu prices are trading down by over 52% over the past 60 days. Meanwhile, the ETH whales have continued their accumulation as the market still trades under heavy volatile conditions.
According to WhaleStats, Shiba Inu has become the biggest holding of the top 500 ETH whales. SHIB has managed to flip the FTX token (FTT) to attain the top spot. The FTT token stood as the largest token held by whales for a quite long time. As we dig in, SHIB holding by the largest 100 Ethereum whales has increased massively.ADVERTISEMENT
Earlier, the Whalestats reported that the top 100 ETH wallets are holding around $573 million worth of Shiba Inu tokens. The data shows that SHIB holding has increased by almost $259 million in the meantime. As of now, the top 100 wallets are holding over $833 million worth of SHIB tokens with them.
