The trending meme token, Shiba Inu ($SHIB) saw the exceptional hike of 10 percent in past 24 hours, post an Ether ($ETH) Whale added 4 trillion SHIB, i.e., $136 million. As the crypto market showed slow recovery after a short bear run, tokens turned green overnight. However interestingly, Dogecoin’s prodigy, SHIB even outperformed the OG crypto, Bitcoin ($BTC) with just 6 percent spike, as well as Ethereum with 5.7 percent surge in past 24 hours. According to WhaleStats’ Twitter handle, Shiba Inu is the “most traded and biggest hodling token among the top 1000 ETH wallets”.
