FTX hacker moves stolen funds
The exploiter, who is rumored to be an insider, moved 2,500 Ether (ETH) worth roughly $4 million in the early Asian session on September 30. The move from the bad actor seems well-timed, considering it occurred over the weekend when trading liquidity and volumes on exchanges are typically low, and the impact on crypto prices will be the highest.
