Here’s Why Venture Capitalists & Whales are Keen on Holding These Top Crypto Sectors!

VCs Opt for Multi-Chain Smart Contract Platform Rather Than Metaverse/NFTs

Smart Contract platforms are believed to be the most thriving sector of the crypto space, which may largely dominate in the coming days. Hence, the majority of the crypto funds are now stuck up within these sectors, which may suggest a potential rise in the near future. Venture capitalists (VCs) are presently holding smart contract platforms at the highest level compared to the other market sectors while metaverse & NFTs have not made it to the list.

Considering the VC’s perspective, the future of the crypto space is embedded within multi-chain smart contract platforms that offer preferred risk-adjusted market exposure. The other outcome of the data can be drawn as DEX’s needed infrastructure to accommodate the predicted influx of users. And thirdly, the platforms that manage the data, record its storage, etc., can be considered a growing sector.

SHIB Held Largely by Ethereum Whales

As the SHIB prices are anticipated to soar high in the coming days, the rate of adoption also has risen in recent times. Shiba INU has been the leader of the holdings held by the top Ethereum whales lately. The new data suggests that the top 500 Ethereum Whales are constantly accumulating Shiba Inu as it tops the leaderboard of the most held tokens.
