CRV Price Plummets 30% Amid Curve Founder’s Liquidation

The Curve DAO (CRV) price unexpectedly dropped by about 30%, sending shockwaves through the cryptocurrency community. The token fell from a high of $0.35 to a low of $0.27 due to huge liquidations that created a chain reaction of negative occurrences. According to data from many on-chain platforms, Michael Egorov, the founder of Curve Finance, is liquidating millions of CRV Price tokens on various DeFi platforms amid this meltdown. This comes after Arkham disclosed an impending $140 million CRV liquidation.

Arkham’s June 12 post on X mentioned that $140 million in CRV Price liquidations were approaching soon in the cryptocurrency space. Accordingly, Michael Egorov, the founder of Curve, has borrowed $95.7 million in stablecoins, primarily crvUSD, against his $141 million CRV spread over five accounts on five different protocols. According to Arkham, the founder looks to be spending $60 million a year simply to maintain his roles at Llamalend.
