Whale Invests $8.65 Million in Solana’s Meme Coin WIF, Sparks Binance Listing Speculation

On-chain analysts have discovered that a whale who calls themselves a “Binance insider” is heavily accumulating a Solana (SOL) meme coin – Dogwifhat (WIF). Will Binance list WIF?

Since late 2023, the Solana meme coins such as BONK and Dogwifhat gained the spotlight. Moreover, BONK was even responsible for skyrocketing the sales of the Solana Saga smartphone.

Whale Spends $8.65 Million to Purchase WIF

Lookonchain says a whale wallet spent 86,738.1 SOL, worth $8.65 million, to buy 17.22 million WIF tokens. 

“The whale calls himself a “binance insider” and seems to want to tell everyone that $WIF will be listed on #Binance,” said Lookonchain.”

Notably, when BONK was listed on Binance, its price surged by over 134% in 24 hours. The price surge added $1 billion to its market capitalization.

However, another on-chain analytical platform – Scopescan, further elaborated that the same whale lost $7.7 million due to slippage. The whale tried to buy WIF worth $8.65 million in one transaction, whereas the liquidity of WIF was approximately only around $2.7 million.
