Shiba Inu whale activates

In a post shared on 13 July by Lookonchain, it was unveiled that a colossal SHIB whale, previously dormant for nearly two years, suddenly sprang back to life.


As reported by Lookonchain, this whale possessed a staggering 101.47 trillion SHIB tokens dispersed across 23 distinct wallets. This token accounted for approximately $756 million, equivalent to more than 10% of the SHIB supply.

A giant whale with 101.47T $SHIB($756M, 10.15% of the total supply, probably the largest holder) transferred 4T $SHIB ($29.8M) to 8 fresh addresses today.

The whale has not made any large transfers for 610 days.

Furthermore, the resurfaced whale initiated a transfer of 4 trillion SHIB tokens, equivalent to over $29 million. The transferred tokens found their new home in eight fresh addresses, as confirmed by data sourced from Etherscan.

Inflow and outflow charts show regular movements

Upon meticulous analysis of the inflow and outflow charts on Santiment, it became evident that no notable surge had occurred. This observation pointed to the possibility that the influential whale had not transferred a substantial volume of the active token to exchanges, assuming any movement had occurred.

At the time of writing, the inflow chart stood at 14.58 billion, while the outflow volume slightly exceeds 8 billion, as recorded at the time of writing.

Trillions of Shiba Inu waiting outside exchanges

With the emergence of the activated Shiba Inu whale, a closer examination of the volume of SHIB residing outside of exchanges yielded an intriguing revelation. As of this writing, the volume of SHIB held outside exchanges surpassed 914 trillion.

This contrasted with the 85.9 trillion SHIB found on these trading platforms. This finding suggested that many holders have opted to keep their SHIB tokens outside exchanges, potentially awaiting a price surge before deciding to sell.

SHIB’s poor trend continues

Following a period of decline, Shiba Inu experienced a modest recovery when observed on a daily timeframe. As of this writing, it was trading with a marginal profit of less than 1%.

However, it was yet to overcome its short Moving Average, which has been acting as a resistance level. Moreover, the volume metric indicated a need for more significant activity, explaining why the price has struggled to rally.
