WIF Plunges 11% As Whale Deposits Millions To Binance

Memecoins are in red this week as most sectors of the crypto market struggle. Dogwifhat (WIF) has not been the exception.  The memecoin sensation of Q1 saw a significant price drop following the movements of a whale. Recently, an address transferred millions of WIF to a crypto exchange, which ignited speculation about who was behind the transaction.

6 Million WIF To Binance

On Friday, reports of a massive WIF transfer to Binance hit the crypto community. Per the report, one of the top dogwifhat holders moved millions to the largest crypto exchange.

The whale transferred 5.97 million WIF, worth around $11 million, on June 21. Additionally, the address offloaded 48 million Trump Coin (DJT), approximately $500,000.

After the news, the crypto community began speculating who was behind the transfer. Some users claimed the whale was crypto trader Ansem, who was very vocal about WIF. The trader was also part of the Las Vegas Sphere project, where users donated around $700,000 to project the token’s image in the Sphere.  

Users on X criticized Ansem for the alleged deposit, expressing their disappointment in his “capitulation”. Some investors took the opportunity to express their discontent with the trader for “grifting and dumping on investors.”

The discussion sparked an important conversation: should Key Opinion Leaders (KOLs) not move their money? One user considers that Ansem, and all KOLs, are free to do what they want with their money.  The user argued that KOLs are subjected to criticism regardless of their route.

When people sell before you do, they are “jeet”. When KOLs sell some of their holdings or even move it around, they are “pump and dampers”.

Several community members agreed and questioned if KOLs are “obligated” to hold a token until investors are happy with their profits.  However, others argue that community members are “arbiters” of traders’ reputations.  

Dogwifhat Take A Blow, But Was It Ansem?

Despite the rumors, online reports suggest the wallet is not linked to the crypto trader. After deep-diving into the address, a community member found that the address was not associated with Ansem.

The post notes that the only reason it was linked to the trader was the large WIF balance and many Solana memecoins.

However, the address has a record of selling their token at a loss “to FOMO into new shiny stuff.” Furthermore, the wallet seems to be linked to a now-deleted X account.  At the time of writing, the trader has not acknowledged the rumors.  

After the reports, WIF’s price dropped from the $1.90 to the $1.80 price range. On the last day, the memecoin plunged from the $2.15 mark, representing a 13% decrease.

The token has also seen a 25.3% and 36.1% drop in the weekly and monthly timeframes. Crypto analyst Bluntz forecasted a bearish $1 target for the dog-themed memecoin. Ultimately, the analyst stated that a descent to the $1 support level was “inevitable” before the “next parabolic leg.” As of this writing, WIF is trading at $1.83.
