Tron Founder Justin Sun Withdraws Almost 600 Billion SHIB This Week, Sparks Reaction

Last updated on May 18th, 2024 at 12:13 pm

Justin Sun, the founder of Tron Network, has substantially withdrawn almost 600 billion SHIB tokens in the space of a few days.

In a recent turn of events, the cryptocurrency entrepreneur and business executive shocked the entire crypto space with a massive amount of crypto withdrawals, leaving members speculating about the reason for the actions.

On December 18, Sun reportedly transferred approximately 500 billion SHIB tokens (worth $5.13 million) from Binance to a wallet labeled “Justin Sun 4” as reported by Vet Kusama – a Shib team member.

Shortly after, Sun withdrew another 77 billion SHIB tokens from Binance according to PeckShieldAlert – a crypto tracking platform. The 77 billion SHIB token withdrawn was valued at approximately $810,000 per the report.

Interestingly, Sun has recently made other substantial withdrawals of several tokens from Binance. Some of these cryptocurrencies include 127,510 Chainlink (LINK) tokens (worth $1.85 million), 202.3k Storj (STORJ) tokens (worth $200,000), 53.68 billion Pepe (PEPE) coins (valued at $76.7k) and 13,904 dYdX (DYDX) tokens (worth$43,000).

Sun announces shifting interest to meme coins

Earlier this year, in May, Justin Sun took to his X account (formerly Twitter) to disclose his new interest in trading meme coins and other promising cryptocurrencies.

According to him, he would trade these tokens via a public address and would be liable for all potential losses resulting from those trades while promising to donate all profits to charity. Perhaps, his recent significant meme coin transactions are in line with his plan.

Even though it may seem like a kind gesture, it has left the crypto community speculating about its true intentions and the potential impact it will have on the crypto market.

Some crypto observers and traders believe that his involvement in exclusively trading these assets could lead to a significant impact on the prices and market shift.

Investors and market analysts will probably be closely observing SHIB’s price changes as well as Sun’s significant withdrawals, trying to figure out the reasons behind these calculated actions.
