Is it legal to dump this much? Found a worse performing coin than Ripple.

The higher total value locked represents that there’s more trust in the automated market maker industry which ensures that more people are willing to support the exchange by depositing the capital into the reserves. They anticipate strong incentives for that and steady revenue from the transaction fees as well as the governance rights by holding the native token. If the trust, however, disappears, the money will as well. People start withdrawing capital from the pool which means that they are reducing the exchange’s capability of processing trades faster when there’s not adequate liquidity. In turn, the revenue, as well as the appeal for these tokens, falls too.
SushiSwap faced severe trust issues with the liquidity providers since the founder Chef Nomi withdrew about 38,000 ETH from the protocol’s development fund. The media termed it as an “exit scam” even after the exchange’s head Sam Banknam Fried took over control. Nomi later returned the capital to the SushiSwap treasury but that was not enough to earn the people’s trust. Without the basic bullish fundamentals on the other hand, SUSHI risks getting exposed to volatile market trends.
For example, the SushiSwap token latest drop coincided with the rest of the decentralized finance market. every DeFi cryptocurrency that posted exponential gains is down on their knees. The traders are also profit-taking or moving their capital into projects that have long-term sustainability. SUSHI expects to tail the market trends but with no credible history of price actions, the token could undergo a free fall. Watching the liquidity pools in the meantime, we could only guess the next market move.
