According to an article on CryptoPotato, a mystery hacker who stole hundreds of millions of dollars during FTX’s collapse has recently made a significant move with the stolen assets. The alleged perpetrator transferred assets worth over $300 million for the first time in ten months. The on-chain data reveals that two transactions occurred on September 30th via the RailGun privacy wallet and Thorchain, totaling $8 million. Despite this transfer, the hacker’s address still holds 12.5K ETH.
The hacking incident initially took place when FTX filed for bankruptcy and its founder, Sam Bankman-Fried, resigned on November 11, 2022. During this period, an unknown attacker managed to steal more than $600 million worth of Ether, temporarily making them the 35th largest holder of Ether. To hide the stolen funds, the hacker deposited them into CoinMixer, an anonymous Bitcoin mixing service designed to make it harder to trace Bitcoin transfers. After withdrawing from the mixer, the hacker made several swaps and bridge transfers to further obscure the trail of the funds. Speculation suggests that the funds were likely transferred to the crypto exchange OKX.
