The meme cryptocurrency Shiba Inu (SHIB) became the whales’ favorite token after it witnessed massive rallies during the bull market in 2021. The whales have made millions of dollars in profit. However, with the crypto winter, SHIB has suffered one of the worst downfalls, causing whales to move away from the meme coin.
Recently, a Shiba Inu whale transferred over 210 billion tokens worth $2 million to crypto exchange Binance on December 14. The whale bought 3.49 trillion SHIB tokens for 2.37 ETH in 2020 and has since selling SHIB tokens in small amounts. The whale still holds over 546 billion SHIB tokens worth $4.86 million.
SHIB Price Can Drop More
Shiba Inu price has reached a crucial support level. Experts believe the negative market sentiment following the collapse of FTX will cause more selloffs. Moreover, the FUD related to Binance and DCG’s Genesis facing potential bankruptcy risk is limiting traders and whales to pour money into SHIB.
Analysts predict the SHIB price can fall to $0.0000075 before making an upside move. Analysts believe Bitcoin and Ethereum are bearish and have yet to form a bottom. Bitcoin and Ethereum rally will make SHIB follow suit.
