The 6 metrics of the week

200it is the number of BTC dating from 2010 that have just been moved. Thus, 12 years after being mined, several addresses have issued transfers to a single and unique address. Would the holder want to cash out his $4 million?

$670 millionit is the amount claimed by Voyager Digital from Three Arrow Capital. Unfortunately for the lender, 3AC appears to be avoiding contact with its creditors.

480it is the number of BTCs that have just been purchased by the MicroStrategy company. Thus, it takes advantage of a fall in prices to increase the number of BTC in its coffers.

$1.5 millionit is the amount that was returned by the hacker of the XCarnival protocol. In practice, he had stolen $3 million. He eventually agreed with the team to keep a $1.5 million reward.

100 millionit is the amount that was stolen by an attacker on Harmony’s Horizon Bridge. However, the latter does not seem inclined to negotiate and has undertaken to move the funds via Tornado Cash to cover his tracks.

Hebdo Crypto: the XCarnival hacker laundered the funds.
