Let’s see how these thirteen wallets came to hold 10% of the $SHIB supply with the help of Bubblemaps.
Shiba Token Wallets Worth $1B
There is a group of thirteen wallets that hold $1 billion worth of Shiba Inu tokens that all originated from one wallet and have not moved since the Fall of 2021.
The thirteen wallets, detailed in a recent thread from Bubblemaps, all began from a single wallet that accumulated over 103 trillion tokens between August – October 2020. This wallet bought 10% of tokens for an estimated 38 Ethereum, equivalent to around $10,000.
The Bubblemaps thread reveals that the wallet ballooned to a massive price of $5 billion worth of assets when $SHIB hit its all-time high in October 2021. This was a return of over 100,000X for that originally $10k investment!
But the thread explains how having one wallet with so many assets can be problematic.
“When the price soared, having $5B in one wallet was dangerous,” explains the thread. “Increases scrutiny – Generates FUD – More susceptible to hacks.”
The wallet then split into different allotments between 12 more wallets. The distribution is theorized by the Bubblemaps thread as a team wallet because 13 wallets have not seen any movement of funds. It was likely smart treasury management that divided the funds.

What is Shiba Inu:
Shiba Inu is an Ethereum-based altcoin with the Shiba Inu—a Japanese breed of hunting dog—as its mascot. The SHIB token aspires to be an Ethereum-based alternative to Dogecoin (DOGE). Unlike Bitcoin, which is designed to be scarce, SHIB was created to be intentionally abundant — with a total supply of one quadrillion. The Shiba Inu Token ecosystem supports projects such as an NFT art incubator and the development of a decentralized exchange called Shibaswap.
