A Mysterious Wallet Moved Three Million MATIC Tokens To Kraken Exchange

  • Three million MATIC tokens were recently moved by a notable wallet to the Kraken exchange.
  • The recent move from a wallet that deposited Polygon has sparked discussions around a pending MATIC sell-off.
  • MATIC has declined by over 2% in the last 24 hours.

A wallet that received Polygon [MATIC] a few weeks ago has recently transferred a portion of the assets to an exchange. Did this transaction prompt any reaction from the MATIC token?

Three Million Polygon Matic Move To Exchange

Recent data from Spot On Chain indicates that a significant wallet deposited 3 million MATIC tokens to the Kraken Exchange.

Analysis reveals that the value of the deposited MATIC is approximately $2.85 million.

Despite this deposit, the wallet still retains about 16.8 million MATIC, valued at over $16 million.

Notably, this wallet is associated with a ZK rollup network acquired by Polygon in 2021, sparking speculation about whether this deposit marks the start of a sell-off or is a one-time event.
