The transaction, which involved over 357,000 CVX tokens worth $1.15 million, triggered a wave of selling pressure and wiped out recent gains for the cryptocurrency.

Early Friday morning, CVX experienced a price decrease and increased selling pressure following news of the whale transaction.

As of press time, the token is trading at $3.15, a 9.2% decline from its recent intraday high of $3.44.

CVX’s intraday trading volume has also fallen by 14% to $42 million. Although CVX has risen in the past two weeks, this sudden slip has erased gains over the last 7 days.

SpotOnChain data reveals that a wallet linked to the Fantom Foundation sold over 357,000 CVX tokens on June 28, creating significant downward pressure on the cryptocurrency.

According to the on-chain data provider, the wallet sold 357,108 CVX for $1.15 million USDT early this morning.

In June 2022, the same wallet purchased $12 million (436,000) of CVX tokens at around $28 per token.

The analytics platform reports that this wallet has been selling these tokens at an average price of $3.38 over the past two years.

Over that period, the whale’s sales amounted to approximately $1.39 million, representing a total loss of $10.7 million (-87.8%).

Following CVX’s price fall close to the $3.00 support level, Convex Finance’s total value locked (TVL) also declined.

Data from DefiLlama indicates that CVX’s TVL for decentralized exchange (DEX) and automated maker-making protocols is currently $1.24 billion, down 1.59% from yesterday’s $1.26 billion.

Before the recent downturn in the broader cryptocurrency market, CVX’s TVL stood at over $1.57 billion earlier this month.
