6.4 Trillion Shiba Inu (SHIB) Bought in One Week — But Is There Catch?


According to crypto intelligence portal IntoTheBlock, more than 6.4 trillion Shiba Inu tokens were purchased by large crypto market participants during the past week. Wednesday was the most active day, with 1.39 trillion SHIB tokens purchased. So far, the number of big buyers’ addresses in Shiba Inu stands at 124. This number includes those addresses that traded at least 1% of Shiba Inu’s total trading volume.

However, things are not as smooth around Shiba Inu as the first paragraph might suggest. The number of SHIB sold by big players is believed to be 6.5 trillion tokens, which is 100 billion more than what was bought. And the number of addresses of such big sellers is 149.

At the same time, at the end of the week, the SHIB price is showing a 1% decline at the time of writing, which is not really significant. However, it is important to keep in mind that the weekly extremes were set at 5% both down and up from the opening price.

Thus, it can be concluded that the outperformance of bears over bulls by 100 billion SHIB did not have a significant impact on the token price. The week was turbulent for Shiba Inu, as it was for the entire crypto market, and at different times the initiative in trading shifted from sellers to buyers and back again.
