In June, hackers who hacked Bitfinex moved 77.6 BTC , and a month earlier – 28.4 BTC . For the first time, bitcoins stolen by hackers began to move about a year ago – almost three years after the exchange was hacked. Then the attackers also carried out a series of transactions and moved 172.54 BTC to unknown wallets.

As a reminder, hackers hacked the Bitfinex exchange in August 2016. In total, the attackers managed to withdraw 119,756 BTC, equivalent to more than $ 70 million at the exchange rate at the time of the hack. Today, the total value of stolen bitcoins exceeds $ 1.2 billion.
