Why It Matters: Despite the current lull in SHIB’s price, IntoTheBlock data shows that 653,530 Shiba Inu addresses hold a substantial 733.6 trillion SHIB coins, with most of these holdings remaining profitable. This underscores the commitment of Shiba Inu holders to the meme coin.

These developments follow the recent movement of 1.75 trillion SHIB coins from a Robinhood wallet to an unknown wallet, as well as the Shib community raising $12 billion in a funding round and implementing a major hardfork upgrade to improve user performance and block processing periods.

What’s Next: The influence of meme coins and Bitcoin as an institutional asset class is expected to be thoroughly explored at Benzinga’s upcoming Future of Digital Assets event on Nov. 19.
