Dogecoin Whales Lose Supply Share Amid Market Shifts

  • Dogecoin whales have reduced their holdings, with retail and mid-sized investors gaining more share.
  • The redistribution of DOGE supply to smaller holders could benefit the ecosystem.

DOGE whales have lately lost supply share to other holder groups, according to data from the market intelligence platform IntoTheBlock. Here, the “whales” are Dogecoin addresses that have at least 1% of the memecoin’s total circulating supply in their balance.

Behavior and Influence of Whales

The vast number of tokens these enormous holders have makes them the most powerful people on the network.

Even though it might not immediately affect the price, their collective conduct might be worth monitoring since it can reveal information about the mood among this group.

A graph from IntoTheBlock illustrates the changes in the Dogecoin whales’ percentage of the overall supply during the last year.

As the graph illustrates, during this time, the Dogecoin whales have seen their portion of the Dogecoin supply in circulation decline. More precisely, whereas they held around 45.3% of the asset’s supply a year ago, they now hold roughly 41.3%.

Impact of Redistribution

Since then, the whales have shed around 9% of their net holdings. “In contrast, retail and mid-sized investors now hold a larger share of the total supply,” the analytics company said.

The health of the DOGE ecosystem may benefit from this supply redistribution to smaller holders because it reduces the concentration of the asset over a limited number of powerful players.

Meanwhile, CoinMarketCap data shows that the price of DOGE at the time of writing is at $0.1245, down 0.58% from the previous day. This represents a noteworthy decline of 13.04% throughout the last seven days as well. This price drop complicates the changing dynamics of DOGE holders even more.

On the other hand, ETHNews also reported that The Sandbox has declared the inclusion of Dogecoin, Shiba Inu (SHIB), and a number of other meme coins into its platform. This advancement might affect how popular and used these coins—DOGE included—are in the metaverse.
