SHIB Pushes FTX Down From #1 Spot As Largest Holding Among Top 1,000 Whales

Recent data shared by WhaleStats shows that SHIB has retaken its number one position among the top 1,000 ETH whales' crypto assets by USD value. Before this, FTX did the same with SHIB, but now the meme cryptocurrency has struck back.

According to a recent tweet by WhaleStats, the 1,000 top Ethereum whales held $1,606,812,247 worth of FTX token, making it the top asset by dollar value. However, after WhaleStats' data went through a website update, SHIB returned to the highest position in these whales' wallets.

According to the table, the 1,000 largest Ethereum whales now hold around $1,874,858,000 worth of SHIB. The average amount of these meme tokens stored in their wallets is 52,343,037,616 – 6.64% of all crypto holdings.

As for FTX, its amount equals around $1,589,842,800 in USD (5.63% of all the crypto holdings owned by the whales). The dollar worth of Ethereum held by these wallets is roughly $158,791,856 (with an average amount of Ether held being 41,475 coins).

Still, the most widely held and traded token among these whales is UNI. WhaleStats has also shared that the army of SHIB holders has added a whopping 100,000 new users. Just a few weeks ago, this number hit the milestone of 1 million, and now the figure of the total SHIB owners stands at 1,100,357, according to the tracking project's website.
