Shiba Inu Holdings Drop as Whales Shift to Tether 

SHIB holdings have reportedly dropped, according to a statistic from WhaleStat Service. The statistics website compared the meme coin’s holdings to other ERC-20 holdings on the 1000 largest wallets on the Ethereum Network, and it discovered that Shiba Inu has dropped 4% from 22% to 18%. 

Whales Shift Focus to Tether 

Experts blame whale traders for the decline in SHIB token holdings. According to WhaleStat Service, whale-tier traders redistributed their funds, leaving their initial tokens behind. 

Typically, when investors lose money and the market drops, they are forced to redistribute their funds to kickstart correction on the market. Investors involve regular crypto holders and whale traders. 

WhaleStats reveal that whales have shifted their trading focus to other tokens, such as Chainlink and BitPanda. Interestingly, over 7% of whales’ funds have gone into stablecoins with the intent to reduce exposure to risks from the frequent correction occurring in the market. 

Currently, the most powerful token among whale traders is the USDT, which became the most bought coin in the last twenty-four hours. The largest position is the SHIB token, which lost close to 50% of its USD value from its all-time-high.
