Further information about the transfer states that the Ponzi scheme is probably getting to move the $67M worth of EOS to cryptocurrency exchanges and dump on the market.
However, the market could still absorb a possible sale with no notable impact on the price of EOS, as the digital currency maintains over $1 billion volume on a daily basis.
At the time of filing this report, EOS is trading at $2.56, with an approximately 1% price uptrend in the last 24 hours. And 24H volume of $1,240,615,093.
About PlusToken Ponzi scheme
The PlusToken Ponzi scheme was purposely designed for the buying of PLUS tokens by its users, assuring them a high rate of returns.
As of 2019, the Ponzi scheme had accumulated about $2.9 billion in various crypto assets. However, the creator of PlusToken has since been arrested, but the accumulated funds are still circulating as reported by Chainalysis.
With the look of things, several moments of huge price dumps experienced by digital currencies in the crypto market are possibly caused by the sell-offs of various tokens accumulated by the crypto scam PlusToken.
