SHIB trading volume increases by 102% and whales buy 323 billion coins in 24 hours


This week, whales transferred massive amounts of Shiba Inu, moving crypto memes between wallets, selling and buying SHIB.

Of those SHIB moves, the 100 largest whales on the Ethereum blockchain moved about $2 million worth of SHIB in two days, just before the weekend began. Now, those coins (and a bit more) are back in their wallets, acquired simply in the last 24 hours, according to data platform WhaleStats.

These fund movements are the result of SHIB’s increased trading volume. Over the past 24 hours, the increase has held at just 102%.
