An address with the foresight to purchase $3,400 worth of Shiba Inu (SHIB) last August has seen the value of the coins grow to a whopping $1.55 billion on Thursday.
In total, the unknown person has bought SHIB 44 times since August 2020 — with $3,200 as the largest purchase at any one time — and their total holding of 70,200,003,107,594 SHIB is now worth $5.63 billion.
After the wallet address was shared on Twitter, user Untraceable questioned whether the SHIB market was liquid enough to “absorb $5.7b if this wallet sells?”
According to Etherscan, the anonymous SHIB hodler purchased the dog-themed token on nine occasions in August 2020, spending a total of $3,400 worth of Wrapped Ethereum (wETH) that month.
As the price of SHIB has since gained more than 94,278,239.8%% over the past year to sit at $0.00008094 at the time of writing, the hodler has become a crypto billionaire from their August purchases alone.
