MKR price declines as Maker whales shed holdings

Two whale wallets, identified as 0xcf9 and 0xa09 sold 3,075 MKR tokens for $9.34 million in stablecoins, USDT and DAI, according to Spotonchain. The whales sold their MKR holdings at an average price of $3,039. After this movement, the asset’s price is down nearly 2% on Monday. 

Typically, asset sale by whales drives down its price as it increases the selling pressure on the asset. Data from Santiment shows an increase in exchange reserves of MKR, between April 20 and 22. Exchange holdings of MKR climbed by nearly 5% within two days. Higher exchange reserves of an asset increase selling pressure and negatively influence the price.
