Robinhood Whale rumors permalink
Over the course of two days, an unidentified buyer (possibly Robinhood) went on a SHIB coin shopping spree, purchasing about 6.3 trillion coins. The whale began his buying frenzy on October 1, when he purchased a massive 6 trillion SHIB coins for $43,838,900. The whale then proceeded to buy another 116 billion coins the next day, followed by two more 159 billion coin purchases and another 1 billion coin transaction, all of which occurred within a few hours.
On Saturday, October 2, the whale purchased a total of 276 billion SHIB coins on its own. Due to the enormous volume, the SHIB coin price increased by 5% before settling at roughly 3%.
But this isn't the first time a whale has shifted the memecoin's fortunes. Shiba Inu was established in August 2020 to capitalise on the popularity of Dogecoin, which attracted a slew of new investors to the cryptocurrency industry.
Shiba Inu, unlike Dogecoin, levelled up almost instantly.
In June and July, investors appeared to be very interested in Shiba Inu, as the total value locked (TVL) skyrocketed to close to $2 billion. The TVL has since dropped to under $300 million, according to DeFiLlama.
However, this hasn't stopped unknown SHIB whales from purchasing large chunks of the asset.
Indeed, whale interest has only bolstered Shiba Inu's position in the market over the last few months. SHIB was first listed on eToro, an Israeli-based worldwide social trading platform, in late June, and has since gone on to be listed on CoinBase Pro and WeBull in early August, all fueled by whales buying billions of coins. September was similar, and SHIB was added to Binance's portfolio as well.
The memecoin known as 'Doge-killer' has a sizable social media following, with nearly a million followers on Twitter. Fans believe that a debut on RobinHood is on the way.
