In addition, the unknown investor transferred 142,980,265,938 (142.98 billion) SHIB, worth $1,303,980 ($1.30 million) to one of the Binance-associated wallets, tagged Binance 14 in a single transaction. Per Etherscan.io data, the transaction is executed precisely at 12:29:35 AM +UTC on August 17th, 2023.

Shortly after, the whale accumulated 1,068,448,646,503 (1.06 trillion) PEPE, worth $1,276,450 ($1.27 million) in a single transaction.

The selling of Shiba Inu Ecosystem’s tokens, SHIB and BONE, comes after Beosin, a trusted platform specializing in crypto-related risk analysis, flagged an emerging critical issue on Shibarium Mainnet. Boesin noted that over 965 ETH valued at $1.7 million got stuck on the Shibarium cross-chain bridge leading to a halt in block production. Boesin advised the users to take precautionary measures and refrain from using Shibarium Mainnet for the time being.

The Shibarium developers haven’t yet responded to the ongoing issue, raising concerns among crypto enthusiasts.
