An unidentified crypto whale has reportedly transferred a massive 100 million Dogecoin (DOGE) to the popular trading platform Robinhood in what looks to be a major sell-off move.

While the general crypto market continues to undergo price corrections with investors hoping for a sooner-than-later price rally, some anonymous whales are busy transferring mouthwatering amounts of assets between wallets.

Per the report, 100,000,000 Dogeoins equivalent to $7,836,678 ($7.8 million) were moved from the wallet to the aforementioned exchange.

This major activity has sparked speculations across the crypto community with many wondering about the intent. It is particularly alarming as this move comes at a time when the price of DOGE is facing a decline attributed to investors’ trading caution.

Potential reasons behind the transfers

Transactions of this magnitude could have several implications and can be attributed to a few reasons. Since the tokens were sent to a major crypto exchange, it could signify a potential sell-off by a large holder which could have a short-term effect on the price of the token.
