Robinhood is with More Than $5 Billion in DOGE
The Robinhood platform had previously announced that the share of Dogecoin on the company’s platform sums up to nearly 32% of what is available in global circulation. According to the report, it has been noted that the company presently holds a huge 42,436,664,891 Dogecoin, which is estimated to be worth over $5.39 billion.

As stated by experts, the Robinhood platform came to have so much Dogecoin as a result of its launch of a cryptocurrency wallet. The platform users can now make withdrawals of cryptocurrencies, and they can as well send it to third parties and their addresses.
Importantly, it has been revealed that the stock and crypto management and trading platform secures DOGE in two wallets while making use of eight addresses.
Anonymous Whales Shift DOGE
After the news about Robinhood broke out, there were corroborating reports from DogeWhaleAlert that there has been a transfer of over 810 million Dogecoins from an anonymous wallet. As reported by the news, there had been two massive transfers from the same unidentified whale two days prior.
