MemeCoin Whale Buys 28 Billion SHIB

Yesterday, a pseudonymous ETH whale called “Gimli”, bought 28 billion SHIB worth $1.2 million. Gimli has a long history of stacking the notorious memecoin. It is currently the 13th largest crypto market cap.

Stacking SHIB

WhaleStats, a Twitter account that analyzes the movements of the most valuable 1000 ETH wallets, called attention to yesterday’s transaction. Binance sent $1,204,823 SHIB to Gimli, for an exact 28,236,296,316 SHIB.

Gimli now owns 1,281,667.671.716.74 SHIB, which is worth $53,977.897. This is more than Binance has on its exchange: 531.107.299.855.73 SHIB, valued at $22,367.776

This is something buyers should be aware of. SHIB token is crypto-based, but it is not decentralized. Coincarp data shows that the token supply is 70% controlled by the top 20 SHIB addresses.

WhaleStats rates Gimli the 246th largest ETH account. His 25% address is made up of Shiba Inu which is more than his ETH balance. Since June, the whale has made large and frequent purchases of the token and has earned some fame for it.

Shiba Inu Rises

SHIB, a spinoff memecoin, is known as the “Dogecoin Killer.” Although Dogecoin was initially created as a joke it has become a top 20 cryptocurrency. With a market cap of nearly $23 billion, Shiba Inu now ranks among its ranks. After a surge in October, it briefly outperformed its parent dog-coin.

Both DOGE and Shiba Inu, as one would expect, are highly speculative cryptocurrencies. They are strongly affected by the short-term sentiment of the market, especially when it is influenced by Elon Musk, a Dogecoin enthusiast.

Dogecoin copycats rose after Tesla’s new pet dog, a Shiba Inu, was revealed. SHIB, on the other hand, plummeted after Musk revealed that he doesn’t own the meme coin.

SHIB saw a relatively low price movement this week. It did, however, manage to be listed on Kraken in the latter part of last month.
