Ethereum whales are bullish on SHIB, accumulate the meme coin

Shiba Inu is currently the largest non-Ethereum ERC-20 holding in the wallets of top 1,000 whales on the ETH network. Shiba Inu yielded nearly 50% gains over the past week, fueling a bullish sentiment among holders. Throughout July 2022 and the first week of August 2022, large wallet investors on the Ethereum network consistently scooped up Shiba Inu tokens, buying the dip.

The top 500 whale wallets on the Ethereum network hold upwards of 119 billion Shiba Inu, scooped up during price drops throughout July and first week of August 2022. These whales’ SHIB holdings are currently worth $1.89 billion and make up 5.91% of their portfolio, based on data from WhaleStats. 

Accumulation by whales is a bullish sign for a token. In the case of Shiba Inu, this is a signal of a breakout. Analysts predict a massive breakout in SHIB as accumulation continues and large wallet investors hold the Shiba Inu tokens that they have accumulated, instead of immediate profit-taking. 

Shiba Inu’s burn intensifies

Based on data from Shibburn, Shiba Inu’s burn tracker, 16.2 million Shiba Inu tokens were burnt overnight. A total of 410.37 trillion Shiba Inu tokens have been burnt so far, assuring SHIB holders of a spike in the meme coin’s value in the long run. While burn rate decline 79%, there was a massive SHIB burn over the weekend, and several transactions burned upwards of 1 million Shiba Inu tokens in one go.
