Whales kill SHIB and DOGE rally
Recently, Santiment data aggregator shared that the profit taking of a group of whales with SHIB and Dogecoin was what caused the rollback of these meme coins’ prices from the highs reached just recently.
Before both coins fell in price, transaction activity soared on both chains as transfers of over $100,000 each of crypto were made to both Shiba Inu and Dogecoin. This put a lot of selling pressure on the mem coin, pushing their price down after a short-term rise and top price levels on Tuesday and Sunday.
