The on-chain analytics platform SpotOnChain identified significant movements by two crypto whales. According to on-chain data, these whales deposited 2.95 million ONDO tokens (worth approximately $3.86 million) to the crypto exchange Bybit following the listing.

The first whale, with wallet address 0x440, sold 1.95 million ONDO worth $2.55 million. It later achieved an estimated profit of $1.94 million.

Similarly, with wallet address 0xa87, the second whale offloaded 1 million ONDO, worth $1.31 million. This whale recorded an estimated profit of $808,000.

Despite these large transactions, ONDO is indeed the leading cryptocurrency in the real-world asset tokenization category. According to CoinGecko data, ONDO has the highest market capitalization in this sector, at $1.87 billion.

Through strategic partnerships, Ondo Finance continues to promote its flagship product, the US Dollar Yield Token (USDY). Recently, it partnered with Helio and Shopify to make USDY a settlement option for millions of Shopify merchants via Helio’s upgraded Solana Pay plugin. This upgrade enables merchants worldwide to accept cryptocurrency payments, with real-time conversions settling in USDY and other stablecoins.

“Integrating USDY into the Solana Pay plugin is a natural fit, allowing Shopify users to transact with the market-leading yieldcoin,” Justin Schmidt, COO & President of Ondo Finance, remarked.

CoinGecko’s RWA Report 2024 also noted Ondo Finance as one of the most popular issuers of yield-bearing stablecoins. Additionally, DefiLlama data shows, as of June 14, Ondo has a total value locked (TVL) of $534.31 million. This figure represents approximately a 178% increase year-to-date.
