According to fxcryptonews, shiba Inu makes up roughly 20% of the CryptoCom reserve, which is worth $2.88 billion. Similarly, Binance revealed that it has 87T Shiba Inu coins in reserve.

Notably, the size of users’ balances determines the majority of exchanges’ proofs of reserves. In a report that was released last month, a Crypto.com representative stated:

“The reason our Proof of Reserves includes Shiba is that we hold customers’ balances 1:1. Thus, our Proof of Reserves is dictated by our customer holdings.”
