Shiba Inu (SHIB) is the Top Holding of WazirX’s Reserves
In contrast, despite the collapse of the exchange FTX, a large number of crypto exchanges worldwide still disclose their “Proof of Reserves” (PoR).
The most recent step in this trend is the release of the PoR by WazirX, India’s largest cryptocurrency exchange, which showed that the exchange has a 1:1 reserve-to-liability ratio.
WazirX, an Indian cryptocurrency exchange, has a sizable Proof of Reserves (PoR) of $284.45 million, as was previously reported.
Shiba Inu (SHIB), which accounts for 19% of the exchange’s total reserves, is the top holding among the cryptocurrencies held by it, according to the report.
Shiba Inu (SHIB) tokens, particularly 6.09 trillion tokens worth about $54.2 million, are among the many Shiba Inu tokens that WazirX currently holds.
Furthermore, it is noteworthy that, according to statistics provided by WazirX, Shiba Inu is the top holding on the site, followed by Ethereum and Bitcoin.
