Lookonchain reported on Dec. 2 that 1inch Foundation transferred $8 million worth of 1INCH tokens from its wallet to Binance. According to the crypto analyst, the last transfer of such magnitude resulted in a 25% drop in 1INCH price.
That is not from the 1INCH foundation wallet.
It is via a early investor because they have claimed through vesting contract, the date that 25% drop happened the whole market did, 1INCH does have a btc and eth pair so when these pairs increase be ready for pump too pic.twitter.com/2YDgSmymsU

However, Don Yakka tweeted that 1INCH Foundation was not connected to the dumping wallet. According to Yakka, the address belongs to an early investor because they claimed the tokens through the vesting contract. He added that the 25% drop coincided with that day’s general poor market performance.
Meanwhile, 1INCH is up 1.7% over the last 24 hours to $0.50. The DEX token had decreased by 4.6% over the previous seven days.
