This was not the first shopping trip here. On February 16, the WhaleStats platform tweeted out a new list of crypto assets, comprising most of their holdings. Meme cryptocurrency, Shiba Inu was in first placea total of 16.74% worth $1,701,965,649.
Apart from this, the crypto whales also devoured Polygon with an average of $36,735 for 19,919 MATIC tokens. The metaverse game Decentraland even cracked the top 10 last week. Interestingly, the whales dropped an average of $18,505 to buy 5,502 MANA.
Overall, SHIB has had an interesting start to 2022. Despite a few hiccups, it outperformed a majority of altcoins as most assets moved into the “red zone”. However, not everyone was on the same page. Binance Smart Chain (BSC) whales didn’t quite show the same enthusiasm for the second-largest canine cryptocurrency.
