CRV war was played out on #Aave yesterday and ended with the longer defeating the shorter.


ponzishorter.eth shorted $CRV by borrowing and dumping $CRV;

$CRV guardians bought $CRV, soaring the price to $0.72, and liquidating all collateral of ponzishorter.eth.

Why did ponzishorter.eth short $CRV?

There maybe 2 reasons.

1⃣ Profit by shorting $CRV.

2⃣ Liquidate Curve.fi founder's $CRV on #Aave by shorting $CRV.

ponzishorter.eth began to borrow a small amount of $CRV and sell from Nov 14, causing the price to slowly drop from $0.625 to $0.464, a drop of 26%.

If he shorts $CRV through the perpetual contract on CEX, he will make a great profit.

ponzishorter.eth's shorting of $CRV also makes many people who use $CRV as collateral face liquidation.

Among them is the Curve.fi founder, whose health rate on Aave has dropped to 1.5( currently 1.62)

So, ponzishorter.eth increased the scale of borrowing and selling $CRV.

The Curve.fi founder also increased the collateral.

Why did ponzishorter.eth choose to short $CRV instead of other tokens?

We try to introduce the $CRV token and the war on $CRV last year.

$CRV is the governance token of the Curve Finance.

$CRV holders stake and lock $CRV for 1 week to 4 years to obtain $veCRV.

So that they can vote to determine how many $CRV token rewards each pool can get.

The current total supply of $CRV is 1,856,964,180 $CRV and the circulating supply is 636,299,989 $CRV.

Only 30.3% of the total supply is in circulation. Image

Here is the top 20 holders of $CRV.

The top 20 holders hold a total of 1.59M $CRV, accounting for 85.76% of the total supply. Image

Since locking $CRV can gain voting weight, many protocols such as Convex, Frax, Spell, etc. want to gain the control of Curve voting rights by accumulating $CRV to the greatest extent.

Here is the top 20 holders of $veCRV.

Convex holds 284M $veCRV, accounting for 51.77%, and has gain the relative control of Curve voting rights.

1/ The price of DFI.money ($YFII) dropped -53% from $4,060.70 to $1,899.87 in the last few hours.

The selling pressure mainly comes from two gaint whales.
$YFII Whale: 0xa4d68627cb6360466f9a6fa6e5db267ef7850c68

Starting from Nov 11, he bought $YFII from exchanges every day, with a total of 8,488 $YFII ($18.4M), and the average price is $2,170.

Assuming he sells all $YFII at $3,000, he will get a profit of $7M.

A few hours ago, the whale "0xa4d6" transferred 755 $YFII($1.5M) from #Huobi to #Binance for sale.

May because #Binance has better liquidity than #Huobi.
