The 61.3 million LRC move as a catalyst for growth

On October 29, we discussed if Loopring was worth buying at $0.60.

Then, on November 16, we saw a transaction of 61.3 million being moved to Layer-2 on the Loopring network.

As a result of this, the crypto community has started speculation surrounding the move to support the upcoming GameStop NFT Marketplace. 

This deposit of 61.3 million LRC was at the time of the transaction worth $164.8 million.

According to a Reddit user at u/Prof_Dankmemes, the address that initiated the transfer is allegedly previously connected to the CEO and Founder of Loopring, Daniel Wang.

Furthermore, GameStop announced in October that it was hiring developers for an NFT platform, where the job opening required knowledge of NFT Marketplaces, Ethereum, and Ethereum Layer-2 solutions. 

Since Loopring provides a Layer-2 scaling solution, speculation started that this deposit could be towards efforts towards building the GameStop NFT marketplace.

All of this combined started raising the price of RLC, and the price could potentially go higher.
