As far as data shared by the WhaleStats tracker of the largest wallets on Ethereum and several other major chains can be interpreted, the top ETH investors seem to be sort of disappointed in Shiba Inu meme coin as they began to dump it heavily.

The supply of SHIB they are holding is now far below the $100 million level in USD, which seemed unlikely as recently as this summer.

Here's how much SHIB whales hold

According to a recent tweet by WhaleStats, the amount of SHIB stored in the top 500 wallets on Ethereum has dropped to $83,874,497 in the USD equivalent from above $100 million a couple of weeks ago.

As for the top 100 whales, they are holding even less SHIB — $76,706,845 worth of these popular meme tokens. Currently, this is 3.28% of their comprised portfolio.

As reported by U.Today, over the past two weeks, anonymous whales have shoveled several trillions of SHIB, moving them between unidentified wallets. Some hundreds of billions, though, were moved to crypto exchanges to be sold.
