As shared by the @ShibalnuNews account, a crypto whale recently purchased an eye-twitching amount of SHIB, worth $11,510,207. That is 276,592,553,073 in crypto.

Influencer believes Elon Musk has not harmed SHIB with his tweet
On Monday, PAC Protocol chief David Gokhshtein wrote on Twitter that a recent tweet by Elon Musk, in which he rejected SHIB token, did not harm SHIB at all.
On Oct. 24, Sunday, Shiba Inu soared to a new lifetime peak of $0.00004442. It happened without Elon Musk, Gokhshtein explains, and without the Robinhood app that is expected to list the token soon.
On Sunday, Elon Musk tweeted that he does not hold SHIB and that he believes it is the utility of a project that matters most (to make products and services for fellow human beings) rather than just making money at any cost.
Gokhshein commented that had Elon tweeted this about Dogecoin, DOGE would have already collapsed. But nothing of the kind happened to SHIB, he claimed. Still, the meme cryptocurrency did lose approximately 14% after Musk’s tweet.
On Monday, the former politician and current crypto influencer, Gokhshtein, also tweeted that he had agreed to buy a bag of SHIB since the label of “Dogecoin killer” had been removed from the second-largest meme cryptocurrency.
