This is the platform’s first transfer of tokens to Binance since the LUNA/UST crash in May 2022, which could indicate that the platform is looking to take profits should the market reverse.
It is not uncommon for foundations to move tokens at local highs as they seek to profit on rising prices and secure profits before market reversals occur. This is similar to what happened with ETH and the Ethereum Foundation in 2021.
