Whales have started shifting a decentralized exchange altcoin ahead of a massive $505.5 million token unlock.
The new chain was developed as a standalone blockchain based on the Cosmos SDK (software development kit) and Tendermint consensus protocol.
The project is slated to unlock 150 million DYDX on December 1st, according to the crypto tracker Lookonchain.
“On-chain data shows that the dYdX Foundation has sent tokens to investor addresses, including a16z crypto, Defiance Capital, and Polychain Capital.
However, we noticed that many investor addresses have bridged DYDX. For example, a16z crypto has bridged all 42.69 million DYDX ($143.87 million) through multiple addresses.
Currently, 437.4 million DYDX ($1.47 billion) has been bridged, accounting for 43.74% of the total supply. Since it is a one-way bridge, this 437.4 million DYDX will be permanently locked in the wethDYDX smart contract.”
The institutional trading platform FalconX withdrew a total of 1.14 million DYDX worth $3.84 million from the top crypto exchange Binance over a five-day period, according to Lookonchain.
Additionally, Lookonchain notes that a whale deposited 1.5 million DYDX worth more than $5 million to Binance last week.
DYDX is trading at $3.17 at time of writing.Don't Miss a Beat – Subscribe to get email alerts delivered directly to your inbox
