Shiba Inu is currently facing buying pressure from whales, ranking among the top 10 most purchased tokens among the 2,000 biggest ETH whales in the last 24 hours.
As reported by the data tracker, ETH whale "BlueWhale0113," ranking 395th on the platform, has bought 312,285,225,685 SHIB, or $3,722,439 worth. Whales frequently use dips to stock up on their preferred coin at a discount. This is still the simplest justification for Ethereum whales purchasing Shiba Inu at lower rates. Shiba Inu was trading at $0.0000118 at the time of this writing, down by 5.95% over the previous day.
Additionally, the anticipation of wider adoption and impending launches may play a role. Shiba Inu just revealed its historic alliance with The Third Floor (TTF) for the construction of its Metaverse, so Ethereum whales may also be bullish about this potential.
IntoTheBlock reports a 142% increase in large addresses, which refers to those greater than $100,000.
