In the meantime, SHIB has become the most used smart contract for the largest Ethereum whales.

Shib has been gaining traction after the long-awaited listing by the popular Robinhood investment app that took place earlier this month. For almost a week now, the second biggest meme token by market cap has been holding the position of the biggest token by USD value for the top 100 ETH whales and has been on the top 10 list of the most purchased coins.
At press time, the top ETH whales hold 53,391,158,345,427 Shiba Inu tokens worth $1,357,748,940. That constitutes 15.14% of the whales' comprised portfolio.
At the time of writing, Shiba is changing hands at $0.00002549, according to CoinMarketCap. Besides, SHIB is expanding across exchanges. As reported earlier, today, on April 20, decentralized exchange Parex opens SHIB deposits and launches a SHIB/USDT trading pair.
