Despite the failed recovery on the cryptocurrency market, Shiba Inu whales are continuing to stack more tokens in their wallets as the average SHIB balance on whale wallets increases by 28% and reaches 2.6 billion tokens.

Increase in average token balance

The increase in balances on whale-tier addresses has been noticed after retraces amid the recovery rally that brought SHIB investors 28% profit in four days. But due to the sell-off on larger cryptocurrencies like Ethereum and Bitcoin, the Shiba Inu rally has concluded, resulting in a 13% drop in two days.
