Shiba Inu whales seem to be awakening, as seen in a massive surge in large transaction volume. Per IntoTheBlock data, Shiba Inu's large transaction volume was up a whopping 383% in the last 24 hours, amounting to $22.71 million.
Notably, the last 24 hours saw three trillion SHIB, accounting for the large transaction volume.
The Large Transactions Volume Indicator gives an inkling of the total amount transacted by whales and institutional participants on a given day. Spikes often suggest that institutional players, or whales, are aggressively buying or selling.
It is worth noting that large transactions are classified by IntoTheBlock as transfers of more than $100,000. In this respect, large transaction volume reached a seven-day high on July 7, with 6.36 trillion SHIB transacted.
This occurs as the Shiba Inu ecosystem continues to receive attention as the Layer 2 Shibarium mainnet launch nears.
As reported, DogeKiller (LEASH) and Shiba Inu (SHIB), two tokens from the Shiba Inu ecosystem, took the lead in CoinMarketCap's (CMC) list of the most trending cryptocurrencies.
