Whales Accumulate Billions In $SHIB
Crypto whales seem to be accumulating billions of Shiba Inu tokens. The news comes after SHIB adoption grew thanks to a listing on cryptocurrency exchange Kraken, its entrance in the world of gaming, and Nasdaq-listed retailer Newegg adding SHIB as a payment method.
Data from tracking platform WhaleStats has shown that the top 100 Ethereum wallets holding the meme-inspired cryptocurrency saw their balance in it rise by over 40% in 24 hours to over 2.5 billion tokens.
Whales started accumulating more SHIB after Kraken finally announced it was listing the cryptocurrency after teasing its community earlier this month, effectively boosting its liquidity. Similarly, Newegg adding SHIB as a payment method gives holders more options of what to do with the token.
However, a more significant catalyst may have been Shiba Inu’s team bringing in gaming industry veteran William Volk to help guide the organization’s move into the gaming industry. The project’s pseudonymous lead, Shytoshi Kusama, said that the team has a new games division, Shiba Inu Games, which hired Volk to lead the design and implementation of a new game being developed by a “AAA Game Studio.”
Volk indicated on his LinkedIn page that he has been working on a freelance basis for Shiba Inu Games since the start of the month, said he is “honored to be working with an amazing team on what will become one of the most significant games of all time.”
