Whales hold almost $1.5 billion worth of SHIB
As per WhaleStats, the top 1,000 Ethereum whales are holding a mind-blowing $1,450,500,335 in Shiba Inu at the moment. That is 15.94% of their holdings. FTT holds the second spot here; its total amount held by ETH whales constitutes slightly less in USD: $1,409.636.849. This is equal to 15.49% of the overall amount of crypto owned by the largest ETH whales.
Curiously, USDC has surpassed USDT here—top-tier ETH holders own more of the Circle-issued stablecoin than of Tether's USD-backed coin. The whales hold $789,708,027 worth of USDC (8.67% of their riches) versus $691,205,759 in USDT (7.59%).
