Ethereum whale "BlueWhale0073" continues to buy massive amounts of Shiba Inu, even now, when the market is seeing the top 10 and other coins' prices bleeding and seeing their market caps melt.
Aside from SHIB, whales have been acquiring great amounts of FTX Token and MATIC.
356 billion Shiba added by this whale
WhaleStats crypto tracking service focused on the largest 100 wallets on various blockchains, including Ethereum, BNB, Polygon, etc., has tweeted that the owner of the "BlueWhale0073" has made a large Shiba Inu acquisition.

SHIB rises 6% in bleeding market
As the cryptocurrency market remains in deep red, with Bitcoin dropping to $22,500 and Ethereum declining to $1,222, along with the majority of other coins, Shiba Inu has been putting up some growth despite all this.
Over the past 24 hours, the second biggest canine crypto has shown a rise of nearly 6%, according to CoinMarketCap.
Cardano, Solana and a few other coins within the top 20 list have also demonstrated substantial growth.
