Polygon Bearish Signal: Whale Moves $7.8M in MATIC To Binance

Data shows a Polygon whale has just moved around $7.8 million in MATIC to the crypto exchange Binance, something that may be bearish for the crypto’s price.

Polygon Whale Has Just Transferred 9 Million MATIC On The Chain

As per data from the crypto transaction tracker service Whale Alert, a massive MATIC transfer has been spotted today.

This transaction involved the movement of 9 million MATIC on the Ethereum blockchain, worth more than $7.8 million at the time of the transfer.

Because the price of Polygon has come down a bit since then, this same stack of coins now converts to about $7.6 million.

Such large transactions are usually a sign of activity from the whales, and depending on the intent behind them, can have noticeable impacts on the market.

Here are some additional details regarding the transfer that might give hints as to why this move of coins may have been done:

As you can see above, the sending address for this Polygon transaction was an unknown address. Such addresses usually belong to personal wallets, or are at the very least not connected with any known centralized platform.

The destination of the transfer in this case was a wallet associated with the crypto exchange Binance, which means this was an exchange inflow transaction.

One of the main reasons investors transfer their MATIC (or any other crypto) to exchanges is for selling purposes. As such, inflows can have a negative effect on the price of the coin.

Large inflows like this one coming from whales can be a sign that these humongous holders are dumping, and can thus be especially bearish for the crypto.

Though, at the moment it’s unclear whether this whale was truly preparing to sell with this transfer, or if they were only setting up a position on the futures market.
