The authors of the article believe that the Thursday purchase pushed SHIB over 7 percent up and gave the coin momentum of 4.39 percent after today’s purchases as well.
However, the whale’s address - 0x7e1aa2e386f02b398da7aad05447c4749d1317c1 – holds zero SHIB, according to whalestats now.
At the time of writing this, the meme cryptocurrency is sitting at 0.00000777.
Whales taking strong interest in Shiba Inu
Crypto whales have grown interested in the Dogecoin rival and laid their hands of massive sums of SHIB earlier this year – in late June, when the coin was added by the eToro platform.
During the last week of July, whales added another big position in SHIB, when the coin was listed by Coinbase Pro and WeBull. When the coin was added by Binance and Coinbase in September and August, more SHIB went into whales’ cold wallets.
Community expects Robinhood to list SHIB
Now, the SHIB community expects Robinhood app to list this cryptocurrency as well, some SHIB fans are posting daily requests for Shiba Inu to be listed. Besides, a petition on Change.org for the listing to be made has been signed by almost 200,000 people.
