SHIB Experience 841% Increase In Outflow, Whales Fingered

Shiba Inu (SHIB), has had a notable 841% increase in withdrawals lately, which has raised concerns about the future of SHIB. Significant losses have been experienced by SHIB’s price, which has dropped by a significant 96.69% in the last week as major holders appear to be pulling out of the market.

The timing of these occurrences has sparked concerns regarding SHIB’s viability and the actions of its major investors. SHIB has dropped almost 97% in the past seven days, confusing and worrying many investors regarding their holdings.

These holders are said to have moved 715.13 billion units of SHIB from their wallets on October 26. This accounts for an 841% surge in withdrawals, highlighting a discernible change in the actions of major SHIB investors.

News has it that the Large Holders Outflow, as published by IntoTheBlock, followed the outgoing funds to some selected unknown whales and some handful of big-time holders. Analysis on IntoTheBlock said that this sudden increase in SHIB outflows could only mean that there’s an intensive increase in whale’s withdrawal or selling activities.

Reason For The Outflow Explained: Whales Blamed

The coexistence of a significant price decline and a sharp increase in large SHIB holders’ outflows has generated discussions among analysts and cryptocurrency enthusiasts. Tomiwabold Olajide, a freelance cryptocurrency analyst, blames the sharp decline in price on the unwinding of leveraged positions and the shift in SHIB from large to smaller holders.

Some speculate that major holders might be redistributing their holdings among different cryptocurrencies or taking calculated risks in order to reduce risk. Recent market observation shows that SHIB has gradually started recouping its previous losses. However, data from CoinMarketCap shows that the SHIB now trades for $0.00000781.

At the time of the surge, the market capitalization for Shiba Inu was recorded at $4.58 Billion and has remained so in the past 24 hours. Also, in the last 24 hours, Shiba Inu recorded a total trading volume of $128.44 million. The token had a 1.13% decline in its total circulating supply of 589,346.91 billion.
