Dumping in crypto refers to the practice of selling large quantities of cryptocurrency on the market at once, causing the price to drop significantly. This can be done by individuals or groups of investors, traders, or even the creators of the cryptocurrency themselves.

When a significant quantity of cryptocurrency is dumped, it may trigger a chain reaction in which other investors rush to sell their holdings, further depressing the price.

Dumping is generally seen as a negative practice in the crypto community, as it can lead to significant losses for other investors.
