Negative Telegram messages about Shiba Inu now outnumber positive ones by almost twice, with 239 negative messages compared to nearly 151 positive messages in the last seven days.

Retail Investors Hold 36% of SHIB Token Supply

Analyzing the ownership distribution of Shiba Inu Coins across different categories—retail investors, large investors, and whales—reveals an intriguing landscape. Approximately 41.77% of the total supply lies in inactive addresses, thus withdrawn from circulation.

Also, this dynamic influences other ownership proportions. Nearly 48 major investor addresses collectively possess about 25% of SHIB’s circulating supply. Meanwhile, ten whales control nearly a third of the supply, while small investors command almost 40% of the token’s total distribution.
