After hitting a three-month-low dominance percentage on whale addresses, Shiba Inu rises and becomes the second-most popular asset in Ethereum network whale-tier wallets.

Race against FTX token

While Shiba Inu's dominance dropped to 5% previously, it still remains the most popular token, with second place having a long way to go to catch up to the meme-based token. But after the fund's redistribution, the dominance of the FTX token on whale addresses has reached close to 11%.

At press time, Shiba has lost first place as the largest holding on whale-tier addresses, with $1.4 billion in large wallet balances. The sell-off of approximately $250 million SHIB also was not a play in the asset's favor, which was the main reason behind the token losing first place as the biggest holding on whale-tier addresses.

FTX token, on the other hand, has gained even more value, with whales adding an additional $100 million worth of tokens recently, putting the total value of investments at $1.5 billion.

And as the distribution of the assets suggests, whales have chosen FTX tokens and tokens like "BEST" and "GALA." Shiba, on the other hand, has lost part of its investment.
