Experts have expressed their concerns with this situation and that despite the abundance of transparency in the crypto industry, it is almost impossible to link wallets to their owners. They also worry that this anonymity leaves market participants unaware of whale concentration and activities that influence prices.

The Shiba Inu (SHIB) ownership concentration came under scrutiny as the meme coin continued to slide from its recent highs. According to reports, of the 872,382 wallets that hold SHIB, only ten control 72% of the total supply.

Shiba Inu attracted a significant level of buzz after it flipped Dogecoin to become the ninth-largest cryptocurrency by market valuation last week. That said, all eyes are on the SHIB whale that controls over 13% of the circulating supply of the meme coin.

Meanwhile, whale wallet concentration has triggered worry over possible liquidity issues amid the growing sell pressure on SHIB at the moment. At press time, the eleventh-largest cryptocurrency has dropped by over 10% in the last 24 hours and 29% in seven days.

While no token sale has occurred yet from the earlier mentioned whale wallet, this address has moved about 10 trillion SHIB to four newly-created addresses, sparking liquidation fears.

Interestingly, transaction activity on the SHIB network recorded an exponential increase, momentarily exceeding other top networks like Ethereum (ETH) and Solana (SOL). This increase in activity stems from the selling pressure on the SHIB network, as holders dump their tokens to realize profits from the recent rally.

Key Shiba Inu Levels to Watch — November 5

As mentioned earlier, Shiba Inu is in a dramatic bearish spiral as traders book profits. The meme currency bottomed at $0.00004312 yesterday before jumping near the $0.00005500 resistance. This jump failed to yield the desired results for SHIB holders as the cryptocurrency dropped again to $0.00004500.
