LDO attracts institutional giants: What was the impact?

Of late, two prominent institutions have started amassing Lido Finance [LDO]. Given the ongoing accumulation, has there been any observable influence on the token’s flow and trend?

Millions of Lido Finance tokens accumulated

According to LookOnChain, analyzing wallets associated with the Amber group and Falcon revealed accumulation trends. On the 20th of November, the wallet linked to Amber withdrew approximately 1.47 million LDO tokens, equivalent to about $3.6 million, from Binance [BNB].

This latest withdrawal brings the total withdrawal to around 5.9 million LDO tokens in the last three months. Also, the total withdrawals were valued at around $14.5 million.

Similarly, Falcon X withdrew around 1.26 million LDO tokens, valued at around $3.1 million, from Binance on the same day. Like Amber, this wallet has withdrawn about 4.9 million tokens, worth $12 million, in recent weeks.

This recent withdrawal is the largest observed in the past few months and is reflected in the netflow.
