Is the Whale Depositing $21M in DeFi Tokens to Binance Justin Sun?


Whale Deposits $21 Million In DeFi Tokens To Binance

In a surprising turn of events, a dormant whale made a massive move in the crypto market by depositing $21 million worth of 4 DeFi tokens to the popular exchange Binance. The news, which broke in the early hours of Monday, sparked mixed reactions from the crypto community, with concerns about a potential dump amid the recent market retracement.

According to on-chain analytic firm Spotonchain, the whale, later revealed to be Tron founder Justin Sun, deposited a staggering $13 million in crypto to Binance. The whale sent 3,800 Maker (MKR) and 20,000 Aave (AAVE) tokens to the exchange after holding them for a year.

The whale’s transactions didn’t stop there, as they also sent over 4,000 Compound (COMP) and 200,000 Liquity (LQTY) tokens to Binance. The total value of the deposits amounted to $21 million in just 30 minutes.

While the community expressed concerns about the potential impact of the whale’s deposits on the market, some saw it as a bullish signal. One user even suggested that whales tend to deposit during consolidation before a breakout, indicating a positive outlook for the market.

Despite the community’s reactions, the 4 DeFi tokens sent to Binance didn’t experience significant price movements immediately after the transactions. AAVE saw a mild 1.4% drop before recovering, while MKR experienced a 10.6% decline over the weekend.

It remains to be seen how Sun’s deposits will affect the market in the coming days, but one thing is for sure – the crypto community will be closely monitoring the movements of this influential whale.
