Decoding if 1INCH could fall to sell pressure as whale transfers into exchange
- A whale transferred two million 1INCH into Binance despite accumulating at a higher average price
- The token price declined with the technical outlook poised to fall further
On 12 February, a whale transferred $1.09 million worth of 1inch Network [1INCH] into Binance, Lookonchain revealed. Usually, a transfer of this magnitude infers an intent to sell. However, the on-chain smartmoney track mentioned that the last transfer the said whale had, was in August 2022.

How much are 1,10,100 1INCH tokens worth today?
An evaluation of the sale implied that the whale selling the tokens would be a realized loss. This was because the average price of the 10 million 1INCH accumulated was $0.83 while the token exchanged hands at $0.53 as of this writing. So, has 1INCH suffered a significant loss in value as a result of this whale action?
Pressure on the bulls
Well, information from CoinGecko showed that the 1INCH exchange against Bitcoin [BTC], in the last 24 hours resulted in an 0.8% decline. However, the token’s ride against the U.S. Dollar was a different talk altogether.
On the daily chart, the Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) shifted momentum in bears’ favor. At the time of writing, the orange dynamic line was rated above the blue line. An explanation of this state points to sellers’ control.
However, both lines trended downwards meaning the selling pressure wasn’t extremely heightened for bulls. But on another note, 1INCH was likely to remain in a similar condition in the short term because the 12 to 26 EMA close remained below the equilibrium MACD point.
On the part of its trajectory, the Directional Movement Index (DMI) pointed to the red area. From the image above, the +DMI (green) was down to 16.45 while the -DMI (red) was positioned lower at 12.95. The Average Directional Index (ADX) also trended downwards with hardly any support for an uptick or downturn.
Miles ahead but still on the line
Despite the possibility of a fall, the 1INCH network recorded a milestone on 10 February with its Ethereum [ETH] swaps. On the said date, the blockchain distributed network announced hitting seven figures as per the activity.
