Egorov CRV Liquidation Due to Falling Token Value

The most extensive impact was from the CRV market on lend.curve.fi, where he had the largest position. As a result, Egorov was exposed to $10 million worth of bad loans due to his extensive market position.

Egorov was swift to eliminate the liquidation risk, having paid 93% of the bad loans, and will pay off the rest soon. Despite the liquidation of about 100 million CRV worth about $27 million, Egorov is still in a safe position with 39.35 million CRV.

According to blockchain intelligence platform SoSo Value, Egorov’s predicament instigated broad CRV liquidations across different platforms. So far as selling pressure is concerned, Egorov himself did not directly inflate it. In another way, however, he reportedly quickly profited, thereby disadvantaging lenders and prior CRV investors.
