Data from Etherscan shows that less than an hour ago, within just several minutes, a mind-blowing amount of Shiba Inu tokens was transferred—more than 36.8 billion Shiba Inu in total.

Almost 37 billion SHIB transferred by whales and exchanges

Etherscan crypto tracker has spotted 10 large transactions, carrying a minimum of 1.184 billion Shiba Inu—the second largest meme cryptocurrency by market cap after Dogecoin.

Some of these transfers seem to be made by owners between crypto exchanges—from Binance to Uniswap, for example.

However, several massive SHIB transfers were made between wallets, and one came from Binance to a crypto address; these were likely acquisitions.

Each transferred amount of SHIB constituted from 1.18 billion to 4.9 billion SHIB tokens. The total worth of transferred crypto here stands at $1,165,456.

Whales have been laying their hands on Shiba Inu quite often recently. New SHIB whales have also been emerging as of late. Two days ago, U.Today reported that an anonymous investor purchased a whopping 3,457,477,154,937 tokens worth $109,498,301.
