What Is India's Covid-19 Relief Fund & Who Donated It?
Ethereum founder Vitalik Buterin donated $1.5 billion in cryptocurrency on May 12, 2021 to help India fight its second wave of Covid-19 that engulfed the country leaving thousands hospitalized and dead. India at that time saw its positive cases rise to 400,000 per day and the country's health care was at the brink of collapse.
Vitalik had donated four different cryptocurrencies from his holdings to India's Covid-19 relief fund that included Ethereum, Dogecoin, Elon coin and Shiba Inu. Reports state he donated 500 ETH, 50 trillion Shiba Inu, Dogecoin and Elon coins worth $336 million.
As soon as Vitalik donated Shiba Inu coins in May, SHIB the same day fell 35% and has been dipping every time India's Covid-19 relief fund sold the donations in a timely manner since four months.
A major factor that held Shiba Inu from spiraling upwards in price can be arguably connected to the Vitalik's donations. SHIB was always under the 'sell' pressure due to the donations and that has officially come to an end today.
Now that all of the donations are sold off (100%) by the India's Covid-19 relief fund, SHIB remains free in its movement and stands at a pivotal time to move ahead in price.
Shiba Inu at the time of publishing was trading at $0.00000804 and is down -10.76% in the days trade.
