  • Lido DAO (LDO) has declined by more than 40% in the last 30 days, with more room to fall in the coming days amid a potential sell-the-news event, such as the Merge.
  • Lido DAO is Ethereum’s biggest staking service, having deposited over 4.14 million of the blockchain’s native asset, Ether (ETH), into the Ethereum 2.0 smart contract on behalf of its users, according to the latest data. The token’s sharp correction in the past month raises the possibility of an extended downtrend now that the pre-Merge hype is nearing its end. Click here to read more.
  • Apollo DAO to close vaults on Terra Classic as the protocol’s TVL has plunged from around $200 million in September 2021 to less than $125K. According to the DAO, since the collapse of Terra, they have continued to maintain the LP vaults on Terra Classic; however, due to the low return and high level of required maintenance, it no longer makes sense to support the Terra Classic network.
  • The Apollo DAO comprised over 10,000 token holders who built its vaults primarily for trading the Terra USD (USTC) stablecoin and Terra Luna (LUNC) token pairs. Both tokens have plunged drastically since May, and co-founder Do Kwon is currently wanted in South Korea for allegedly violating the country’s capital market laws. Click here to read more.
