Fantom Foundation Wallet Records Significant Loss On CVX Sale, Impacting Token Price

In a recent transaction, a wallet linked to the Fantom Foundation, identified as 0xa51, sold 357,108 CVX tokens for 1.15 million USDT at an average price of $3.22.

This significant move in the market has brought to light the foundation’s substantial financial loss over the past two years.

Back in March 2022, the wallet invested $12 million to acquire 436,000 CVX tokens at an average price of $28 each. However, over the ensuing two years, these tokens were sold at an average price of only $3.38, yielding a total of $1.49 million.

This translates to a staggering loss of $10.7 million, or 87.8%.

Currently, the wallet holds 74,634 CVX, valued at approximately $240,000. The recent large-scale sale exerted downward pressure on the CVX market, causing the token’s price to drop by roughly 5%, from $3.40 to $3.22.

This episode underscores the volatility and risk inherent in the cryptocurrency market. The Fantom Foundation’s experience with CVX highlights the challenges of managing large crypto investments and the potential for significant financial loss.

For investors and market participants, this serves as a stark reminder of the importance of strategic planning and risk management in navigating the crypto landscape.
