SHIB, DOGE spiked as whale volume surge

The recent increase in both tokens coincided with a surge in whale transactions, suggesting that the deep-pocketed investors were responsible for the price rallies, besides other market factors.

According to recent data shared by cryptocurrency on-chain metrics platform Santiment, both Dogecoin and Shiba Inu whales played the market rally perfectly, exiting at the ideal profit-taking points.
