On November 13, a wallet address associated with digital asset firm Amber Group deposited 500,000 dYdX to Binance. These moves by large wallet addresses took place ahead of the upcoming token unlock events.

According to data from token.unlocks.app, 2.16 million dYdX tokens will be unlocked on November 28 and 150 million of the governance tokens will enter circulation on December 1. These unlock events will double dYdX’s circulating supply, increasing the selling pressure on the DEX’s governance token.
