In a celebratory tweet, the SHIB Twitter account announces a new milestone for the meme cryptocurrency community as Shibtoken's official Instagram marks more than 150,000 followers. The team behind the meme cryptocurrency then went on to thank the SHIB community for its support.
Per IntoTheBlock data, Shiba Inu whales have been on their toes in the previous 24 hours, with a 75% increase in large transactions. Large transaction spikes are frequently associated with increased activity from institutional players, or whales, who are either buying or selling.
These transactions exceed $100,000 moved, according to IntoTheBlock.
Recently, the third-largest whale on the Ethereum blockchain, marked "Tsunade," purchased 86 billion Shiba Inu tokens in a transaction valued at $2.3 million.
On April 4, it was reported that the Bitcoin of America network of crypto ATMs had added Shiba Inu, following the addition of Ethereum and Dogecoin to the range of coins this chain works with.
Now, users can buy these cryptocurrencies from Bitcoin of America kiosks, along with BTC. Dogecoin was added by the network in February, causing the price of the meme coin to spike.
