Shiba Inu Coin News: The world’s second largest meme cryptocurrency, Shiba Inu (SHIB) is trading under selling pressure as Pepe (PEPE) grabbed the spotlight this month. SHIB price dropped almost 20% in the last 30 days. However, on-chain data depicts that whales might be taking an exit from the Shiba Inu.
Shiba Inu Faces Selling Pressure
As per Spot On Chain, a crypto whale shifted 499.6 billion Shiba Inu Coin (approx price $4.2 million) to crypto exchange Hotbit in a single transaction. It is important to note that the whale wallet came from a dormancy of 7.5 months. The whale is looking to take an exit from its accumulation spree in 2022.
Shiba Inu price is on a constant decline despite the announcement of its much anticipated “SHIB THE METAVERSE”. SHIB price is trading at an average price of $0.000008, at the press time, down by 32% in the last 90 days. However, the whale is still in profit on its SHIB holding by 200%.
As per the data, the whale wallet made an estimated profit of $70 million in 2021 Shiba Inu hype. It moved around 900 billion to Hotbit when Shina Inu was trading at an average price of $0.000065, making a profit of around $58 million.
Since this major dump, the whale went on to accumulate SHIB at lower prices in 2022. As the Shiba inu prices are on a decline, the crypto whale might be considering taking an exit from its positions now.
