The price of Terra (LUNA) suddenly jumped more than 25% on Wednesday, reaching a high of $3.08. The price increase came as the LUNA wormhole token became a top spot in the top 100 Ethereum whales in terms of US dollars, flipping Lido Staked ETH (stETH) tokens.
Terra (LUNA) Wormhole Token reverses with ETH (stETH) staked
According to Whale Statisticsthe LUNA wormhole token caused Lido Staked ETH (stETH) to become the largest holding in dollars of the top 100 Ethereum whales.
The LUNA token accounted for 25.06% of the total holdings of all tokens, excluding ETH. The total value of the LUNA wormhole of the top 100 Ethereum whales is nearly $820 million. The token even surpassed USDC and USDT holdings of the top 100 whales.
The token brought a rally to Terra (LUNA) token as the whales used the Wormhole Interoperability Protocol token to exit liquidity. The price of Terra (LUNA) jumped to a high of $3.08 and trading volume reached close to 150% in the past few hours.
However, the LUNA wormhole tokens have been exchanged to Ethereum (ETH), USDC, USDT and Bone ShibaSwap (BONE). Therefore, upward momentum is seen in ETH and BONE prices, which are up more than 1% and 10% in recent hours.
In addition, conversations between Terra Classic validator LUNC DAO and Bull.BnB reveal whales as the real reason behind the LUNA price pump. The whales made money in a $7 pump last month. Now whales are trying to get out of liquidity.
Meanwhile, whales and traders have also exited TerraClassicUSD (USTC), with prices falling more than 17% in the past 24 hours.
