SHIB Is The Largest ERC-20 Holding Among Whales
New data has suggested that Shiba Inu (SHIB) is the largest ERC-20 token holding among the top 1,000 ETH whales. According to data compiled by WhaleStats looking at the Ethereum-based token holdings of the largest ETH wallets, SHIB represents 21.68% of the combined market share at $2.35 billion. The next highest asset in terms of holdings is Crypto.com’s native token, CRO, representing 5.54% at $603.9 million.
"#ShibArmy Congrats! The King is coming back! #SHIB flipped #BEST, #OKB and #CRO to become biggest ERC-20 hodling (17.44%) among the top 1000 ETH wallets with total value of $2,371,207,191."
The SHIB community has been on a mission to push crypto trading platforms, such as Coinbase and Robinhood, to list the asset. Its Change.org petition aimed at convincing them had received more than 530,000 signatures at the time of writing. Coinbase Pro listed SHIB back in late September.
One popular brand that gave the idea of accepting SHIB for payments a decidedly cool reception is fast-food giant McDonald’s, which replied to a tweet from ShibArmy1365 calling on the firm to accept “SHIB for payment, please.”
CoinGate Allows >500 Merchants To Accept SHIB
Crypto payment gateway platform CoinGate recently integrated the Shiba Inu token, enabling merchants to accept SHIB as a payment option.
In a blog post, CoinGate revealed over 500 merchants can now accept SHIB. Furthermore, Shiba’s integration into the CoinGate trading system enables users to buy SHIB at a 1% rate.
“It is our greatest joy to announce that Shiba Inu (SHIB) has been integrated as our newest cryptocurrency! Every CoinGate user, from merchants to traders or Gift Card shoppers, can now accept, buy, trade, or spend this sky-rocking meme coin on the things they want.”
The development will likely be a catalyst for a potential SHIB price surge, considering that the coin has come under scrutiny for lacking real-world use cases. Notably, in July, SHIB surged in value after the launch of its much-anticipated decentralized exchange (DEX), ShibaSwap, and the integration of the SHIB token on a retail Shopping.io platform.
Currently, the token is eying another all-time high despite the price action getting congested with each lower high, suggesting consolidation. Therefore, the coin will likely break out from the downtrend with a possible upswing.
