Stolen Funds from Bitfinex Hack Seen on the Move



A wallet holding funds related to the Bitfinex hack in 2016 has seen the coins move for the first time in years. The transaction arrived at a tight moment for Bitfinex, when the exchange is beleaguered by suspicions of deep losses and being propped up only by credit from Tether (USDT).


According to the transaction record, around 300 BTC were moved in several transactions this April 25. The transactions are worth around $1.59 million by current prices. This is only a small fraction of the entire hack, where more than 744,000 BTC were stolen.


The address activity was noted by a Reddit user, based on previous lists of potential wallets belonging to the hack. Additionally, traders noticed a trading anomaly, with Bitcoin (BTC) dumping on Kraken briefly.


So...this morning coins from the 2016 Bitfinex hack move for the first time: https://t.co/b3T3kst7SC


Then a liquidity spike wick down to $4357 on BTCUSD on Kraken a few hours later.


Now the NYAG action: https://t.co/oQWjDaa8WL

Bitfinex is carrying more than 22% of Bitcoin (BTC) activity, based on recent CryptoCompare data. The importance of the exchange in the crypto ecosystem makes it closely watched for any warning signs.


It is unknown if the sale is directly related to the liquidation of stolen funds, or is a mistake. What is more worrying is that the funds were moved just as Bitfinex is headed to a legal case raised by the New York Attorney General. The investigations of the accusation point to the fact that Bitfinex may have lost significant funds due to ties with Crypto Capital, which acted as a payment provider in the past few months. Bitfinex denied the claims that the funds were lost, stating that some of the accounts may be temporarily frozen.


The negative news surrounding Bitfinex also caused BTC prices to drop on Friday, sinking to $5,291.84 as selling continued. The loss of trust in Bitfinex led to Tether (USDT) feeling the effect, sinking toward $0.97 on Kraken.


Across the board, USDT is seeing a slight loss of trust, as prices fell toward $0.98 on most markets. At the same time, other stablecoins, including DAI, increased their price slightly above the dollar peg.

“Privacy is Luxury” 

The DigitalBank Vault Encryption System provides total privacy and secrecy

that is so much needed nowadays.   

 

You enjoy zero privacy currently, whatever app you are using and believe they are safe to be used, like all types of end to end encrypted solutions that should give you the confidentiality you need, all those apps are absolutely not secure. 

You always download an app and let it access all the data on your smartphone.

You permit a cyber weapon in the form of spyware, to legally assault

your most confidential information.

Today in cybersecurity and cyber defense you need to trust “No One”.

DO NOT TRUST ANY TYPE OF 'SECURE/ENCRYPTED COMMUNICATION DEVICE"

Who is the supplier of the hardware device? How do you know if it is 'clean' or has some backdoor in it that connects to the hacker's servers? 

 

Nobody, make no mistakes about it, no third party is trustable.

 

You have to trust only yourself.

Give to others the keys to your top classified information?

 

Believe Nothing.

How comes that NO documents of Russian Oligarchs are ever leaked to the net?

How they secure their classified databases, communications, and file transfers?

Celebs Trust Nobody.

So how Celebs store their most guarded secrets?

How they secure sensitive data transfers?

What Secret App Celebs are using for securing their privacy?

 

TRUST NOBODY!

According to a recent Gartner report,

the majority of data breaches and cyberattacks exploit third-party cyber gaps.

50 % of companies experienced a significant data breach through a third-party vendor.
