This may suggest that more traders are turning to meme tokens to seek out gains as the crypto market rebounds. This may also signify that investors still have faith in the meme cycle, despite flat price action reported for several tokens.

Generally, a spike in trading volume might imply that more holders are currently shifting their coins around. This kind of trend could prompt large price swings as traders are useful in sustaining such moves.

The whale surveillance website WhaleStats reports that Dogecoin has become a top hit among 1,000 Binance smart chain whales.

U.Today also reported Shiba Inu as the most traded and biggest hodling token among the top 1,000 ETH wallets, according to WhaleStats. As seen on CoinMarketCap data, Dogecoin is up 4.98% at $0.17, while Shiba Inu was trading at $0.00003193, up 11.98% in the last 24 hours.
