Shiba Inu Becomes Largest ERC-20 Holding Among Top 1,000 ETH Wallets

Shiba Inu breaks through the smaller altcoin to regain its top among the most popular ERC-20 tokens

Shiba Inu regains its place as the king of ERC-20 among the Ethereum whales or the top 1,000 biggest addresses on the network.

SHIB reclaims its top

After a strong 50% market correction, Shiba Inu lost part of its capitalization and, more importantly, popularity among Ethereum whales that decided to shift attention to other tokens that they seem to believe have a growth potential greater than SHIB: BEST, OKB and CRO.

But after the global sell-off on the cryptocurrency market, whales shifted their positions toward more “traditional” tokens, which currently remain on top among ERC-20 holdings with 17.4% domination.

Currently, whales hold more than $2.3 billion worth of Shib. The token itself stays at a $26 billion total market cap that mostly consists of mid-term holders like traders. The meme-based currency faced a $4 billion capitalization and decreased after the dip started on Nov. 15.

SHIB’s market performance during the dip

Shiba Inu’s capitalization topped at $51 billion back at the end of October when the token was trading at $0.00008 for a brief moment. According to on-chain data and market history, whale-tier addresses dropped significant amounts of SHIB on their way to the peak.

The share of retail traders on the market increased after the token retraced from its peak and then slowly faded as Shib lost half of its value and become a less popular investment option among smaller traders.

According to previously published research, SHIB’s growth cycles had an invesrse correlation with social popularity. Once the community “forgets” about the token, its value goes up due to the absence of selling pressure that most retail traders create.
