Behind Shiba Inu (SHIB) are a list of other tokens such as Ethereum’s scaling solution Polygon (MATIC), the native token of decentralized virtual world Decentraland (MANA), and the utility token of the Cronos (CRO) ecosystem.

Why The Sudden Increase?

The sudden increase in the number of Shiba Inu in the Ethereum whales’ portfolios can be attributed to the whopping purchase initiated by two whales, codenamed “Gimli,” and “BlueWhale0159”.

Between the 27th and 28th of July, the two ETH whales collectively accumulated a total of 1.06 trillion SHIB tokens worth $12.95 million at the time of purchase.

This increase in SHIB accumulation among Ethereum whales comes at a time when over 60% of Shiba Inu investors are at loss. At current prices, only 27% of SHIB holders are in profit, while just 4% are at the break-even level.
