The top 100 Shiba Inu holders have likewise increased their portfolios, as WhaleStats reports a 292.18% rise in the average SHIB balance of this category of investor. The average SHIB value of their portfolio has also grown by 287.43%. Both volume and active addresses have grown by 248.27% and 15.38% over the last 24 hours, demonstrating healthy metrics.

Topping WhaleStats' list of the top 100 Shiba Inu holders is a wallet called "Light." The owner of this crypto address holds 35,121,281,443,997 Shiba Inu tokens, or $770,209,702 worth.

Shiba Inu's burn rate is up 646%, a platform that tracks the statistics of burned Shiba Inu tokens, reports that in the past 24 hours, there have been a total of 51,983,850 $SHIB tokens burned and nine transactions.
