The recently awakened FTX exploiter has continued moving stolen funds with the latest 15,000 ETH transfer from a different address.

While the hacker moved 15,000 ETH over the past couple of days from one of the 15 addresses, the latest 15,000 ETH transfer comes from another address. It has now moved a total of 30,000 ETH, worth approximately $50 million.

The latest transfer from the second address took place on 1st and 2nd October. Through them, the exploiter moved $25 million in two transactions, each with 7,500 ETH. It also followed previous transactions, all of which  were directed to the THORChain Router, which bridges to Bitcoin. 

After being inactive for over 10 months, the FTX exploiter entity has started moving funds since last week, when it moved 5,000 ETH first on September 30. The exploiter has since moved millions of dollars of ETH over the past 4 days. 

The fund movement started at the same time when the FTX founder SBF’s court trial was just about to start. This also fuels the potential involvement of an insider in the multi-million dollar hack that took place in January 2023.

According to data from Spotonchain, the FTX exploiter entity still holds over $248 million of stolen funds across different addresses.
