SHIB, MEME, BABYDOGE: Whales concentrated power

Five large stablecoins - Dogecoin (DOGE), Shiba Inu (SHIB), Floki (FLOKI) Baby Doge Coin (BABYDOGE) and Memecoin (MEME) - are dominated by whales. For each cryptocurrency on the list, the top 10 wallets are responsible for over 50% of the circulating supply.

Per a report by Power Your Own Research analytics platform, for BABYDOGE this indicator exceeds 99%. Memecoin (MEME) is following closely with 96% stored by whales.

The next cohort includes Shiba Inu (SHIB) and Floki Inu (FLOKI), with 75,03% and 69%, respectively, allocated by the top 10 public wallets.

For Bone (BONE), Pepe (PEPE) and Dogecoin (DOGE), the metric is between 42% and 54%.
