Almost 73% choose SHIB
12,952 people have taken part in the survey on Gokhshtein’s official Twitter page, 72.8 percent of them have chosen SHIB, while the remaining 27.2 percent voted for FLOKI.
In the comment thread, some Twitter users pointed out to the influencer that they only prefer Dogecoin and that many SHIB holders have joined the FLOKI army now already.
However, according to the recent data from CoinTrendz, Shiba Inu (SHIB) has become the most frequently mentioned on Twitter within an hour's period, getting more mentions that Bitcoin, Ethereum, DOGE, ADA and other popular altcoins.
SHIB remains top 12 coin on CoinGecko
According to the market analytics website CoinGecko, SHIB is the holder of the top 12 spot at the time of writing. Its market capitalization value stands at $14,212,828,031.
CoinMarketCap, however, tells us that the “Dogecoin killer” is on the top 17 spot with $11,280,412,261 market cap.
Whales are buying into SHIB too
On Monday, October 11, SHIB started recovering from the hardest retrace in its history, when it dropped 40 percent. It happened last week after the meme cryptocurrency staged an over 300 percent rally on the news of whales buying eye-popping amounts of this coin.
The largest single SHIB lump was 6 trillion coins, that was followed by another three purchases by the same anonymous whale totaling 276 billion Shiba Inu tokens.
By now, SHIB is almost 11 percent down from the $0.00003202 level reached on Monday after the recovery and is trading at $0.00002859.Source
