Shocking Amount of SHIB Whales’ Purchases Will Leave You Astounded

Published on

Shiba Inu is up by 12.15% in a 7-day timeframe as investors continue to accumulate cryptocurrencies in the wider crypto market. However, on-chain data has shown that accumulation has been going on for a while, with SHIB whales now accumulating $300 million in the past three months. 

Shiba Inu Whales Have Been Accumulating Large Amounts Of SHIB

On-chain data from IntoTheBlock has shown that SHIB whales, meaning large holders, have been accumulating huge amounts of SHIB over the last few months. Large holders in the Shiba Inu ecosystem are divided into 12 whales (those with more than 1% of circulating supply) and 47 investors (those with more than 0.1% of circulating supply). These top SHIB wallet addresses have added an increase of +33.17%, around $300 million worth of SHIB in just the last 90 days.

Data from the on-chain tracker Whale Alerts has shown various massive transfers during this time period. When investors accumulate large amounts, it often signals an incoming price rally.

These massive accumulations by large holders point to their bullish belief in SHIB, despite the crypto having a weak momentum before the ongoing spike in the crypto market. 

This accumulation can, for the most part, be traced back to the introduction of Shibarium. The layer-2 solution developed by Shiba Inu, known as Shibarium, has had a good deal of success. At the time this article was written, the Shibarium blockchain had a total of 3,685,073 transactions and 1,257,858 wallet addresses.

SHIB Future Outlook

SHIB has had a price spike in relation to the ongoing inflow of funds into the crypto market currently being spearheaded by Bitcoin. At the time of writing, SHIB is trading at $0.00000784 after facing rejection at the $0.0000082 mark. 

Bulls have defended the $0.0000061 support level and $0.0000077 levels very strongly to form support after the price tested the latter level multiple times. A sustained move above $0.0000082 could send SHIB skyrocketing to its August high of $0.00001137.

Large SHIB holders now hold 71% of the total circulating supply, and some of them can manipulate the price to their advantage. While whale accumulation is a positive sign, there are other things to consider regarding SHIB’s price outlook. On the other hand, the Shiba Inu developers and team leaders have pointed at upcoming projects in the ecosystem, one of which is a stablecoin based on Shibarium. If successful, a SHIB-based stablecoin could attract new investors to the Shiba Inu ecosystem, leading to a strong SHIB price spike.
