Lido’s price decline tied to Jump Trading dumping, analyst says
Jump Trading has dumped roughly 65,000 LDO tokens — declining over 10% in price —over the last 24 hours, according to Etherscan data.
On-chain analyst Lookonchain has tied Lido’s (LDO) recent sharp decline to crypto company Jump Trading in a Jan. 31 Twitter thread.
LDO declined by around 10% on Jan. 27 when Jump Trading started transferring its holdings to crypto exchange Binance, the analyst said.
The same scenario happened 13 hours ago when Jump Trading started transferring its assets to Binance — dropping its value by 5%.
Over the last 24 hours, Jump Trading has dumped roughly 65,000 LDO tokens, according to Etherscan data.
Lookonchain said that Jump Trading’s LDO dumping could still affect the token because it holds 3.92 million LDO tokens — worth $8.2 million.
