Shiba Inu continues to be in the news as it records a massive 2000% surge in its large transaction volume. This exponential increase signifies the activities of whales in the market.
Live data from IntoTheBlock (a crypto and AI intelligence platform) show a staggering outflow of $67.2 million (equivalent to 8.9 trillion SHIB) worth of Shiba Inu tokens from the market, consequently leading to a 2187.14% increase in its large transaction volume.
This amount of Shiba Inu seen in the large transaction data represents the largest over the past week. For context, a live transaction volume is a measure of transactions valued above $100,000.
This volume gives an insight into the activities and total amount transacted by institutional investors and whales on a particular day. A surge in the large transaction volume of an asset indicates the buying and selling activities among institutional traders or whales. In this case, over 85% of the large tax volume is “out of the money.”
The market has witnessed some significant transfers of Shiba Inu (SHIB) within the last few days. The most recent, as recorded by WhaleAlert shows a staggering 4.6 trillion SHIB tokens moved from Amsterdam-based crypto exchange Bitvavo to an anonymous wallet. The 4.6 trillion Shiba Inu tokens equate to $35,694,206 ($35 million).
