Ethereum Foundation Swaps $1.6 Mln ETH For DAI Amid $120 Mln Whale Selloff – CoinGape


Ethereum Foundation, an NPO supporting the Ethereum (ETH) ecosystem, has engaged in a major ETH swap. The organization reportedly exchanged over $1.5 million worth of ETH for Dai (DAI) stablecoin. The swap was initiated right before the Ethereum price extended below the $2,400 level today.
According to data from Etherscan, a blockchain tracking platform, the Ethereum Foundation sold 700 ETH on Cow Protocol, valued at $1.68 million, considering the price of $2,409 at the time. Subsequently, the organization acquired 1.68 million DAI tokens. The sell-off move comes after the crypto extended massive declines in today’s trading session.
In addition, major ETH whale activity suggests a massive sell-off, which could push the prices down further. According to Whale Alert, the most recent transaction witnessed a dump of 27,729 ETH worth $66.19 million to Binance via an undisclosed wallet. Moreover, another whale transfer registered a shift of 10,000 ETH, valued at $23.88 million, to Binance.
Furthermore, 13,198 ETH (worth $32.08 million) was offloaded to Coinbase through an unknown wallet. The three recent transactions account for a dump of ETH worth $122.15 million within five hours. Earlier, about 15 hours before the latest transaction, a massive $151.02 million worth of ETH was moved to Bitfinex.
