Currently, there are a total of 1,366,587 Ethereum addresses holding SHIB, an ERC-20 token. These addresses hold 999.98 trillion tokens, of which a burn address keeps 41% and, therefore, out of circulation.
This amounts to a relevant number of holding addresses despite not knowing the exact amount of individual holders. Interestingly, one single individual can own multiple addresses. At the same time, one single address can hold SHIB for multiple investors — as in centralized exchange addresses or DeFi smart contracts.

Nevertheless, its relevancy is still notable, knowing this number is higher than Nashville’s 1.33 million population. Nashville is the 40th largest city in the United States and the capital of Tennessee. The aforementioned population data is from MacroTrends and was updated in 2024.
62% of SHIB holding addresses are losing
In the meantime, 62% of the 1.36 million SHIB holding addresses are ‘out of the money,’ according to IntoTheBlock. Only 22% currently hold profits, and 15% of all addresses face a breakeven position.
However, 76% are holding SHIB for over a year and are considered long-term holders.
The token is changing hands by $0.000010 at the time of publication, losing 9.6% of its price value in the last 24 hours. Now, investors wonder what is next for SHIB and if it will manage to keep its observed growth from past years.
It is important to understand that, without a clear value proposition and organic demand for Shiba Inu, the token might face challenges moving forward. Especially if the current holding addresses decide to end their SHIB positions in 2024.
