He added,

“Sorry, this tweet went out a few minutes late as someone came to talk to me and interrupted me. You can see there is also a tx back to hot wallet.”

The transfer took place from 0x3f5ce5fbfe3e9af3971dd833d26ba9b5c936f0be to 0x1c0eace770a15d160a4c217bb69653d3a6db4239. The sender has a balance of 119 million USDT at press time, while the receiver had a total balance of 8 million USDT.

The recent Binance hack led to the loss of 7,000 BTC worth approximately $40 million. Deposit and withdrawal services on the exchange have since been stopped. CZ’s reorg idea for recovering the lost funds created quite a lot of pushback from the community, even after CZ announced that Binance wouldn’t consider it.

Additionally, Binance also announced that they would be adding a margin trading feature on the exchange soon. The exchange is looking for veteran traders to test the bugs using the new feature.

“Trying to pull some shady s*it on the blockchain 😂 everything is being recorded you criminals! Everyone will find out soon tether criminals!”
