Fifth Largest Shiba Inu (SHIB) and Dogecoin (DOGE) Whale Is Same Person: Here's Who

Fifth biggest holder of DOGE owns 20 trillion Shiba Inu

Earlier, U.Today reported that staggering amounts of top meme coins — DOGE and SHIB — were transferred by an anonymous whale: 20 trillion Shiba Inu in four transactions worth $176 million and 3.4 billion Dogecoin evaluated at $248 million.

According to wallet tracker @lookonchain, this whale is currently the fifth largest owner of both Dogecoin and Shiba Inu.

DOGE miners sell three billion Dogecoin

Twitter account @DogeWhaleAlert responded to multiple comments under those DOGE transactions, stating that that money had not been sent to buy PEPE meme coin but was likely moved to a cold wallet.

As covered by U.Today earlier, Dogecoin miners sold a large portion of their crypto holdings in late March. The data was provided by IntoTheBlock on-chain data aggregator. Back in the summer of last year, miners' DOGE holdings stood at about seven billion DOGE. Now, in March, this figure decreased by around three billion Dogecoin.
