Ethereum Price Falls to $950 on Uniswap As Whale Dumps 93K ETH

Ethereum’s native token Ether (ETH) fell to as low as $950 on Uniswap—a decentralized crypto exchange— this June 13, about 20% lower than its spot rate across other exchanges.

The incident happened at around 3:00 am UTC after a whale dumped 65,000 ETH for multiple “stablecoins,” including USD Coin (USDC), Tether (USDT) and Dai (DAI). A piece of evidence noted that the whale sold its ETH holdings to pay off nearly $73 million worth of debt at Oasis.app, a DeFi lending platform.
