Bitcoin stolen in the $72M Bitfinex hack of 2016 just started moving

posted 3 months ago
Some of the remaining stash of the $72 million hack of crypto exchange Bitfinex in 2016, is on the move. Earlier today, 28.3 Bitcoin ($260,000)—originating from a Bitfinex hack four years ago—were transferred to an unknown wallet.

The 2016 hack saw approximately 120,000 Bitcoin appropriated from Bitfinex coffers. Back then, the price of Bitcoin was around $600—amounting to a total loss of $72 million. By today's prices, however, the stolen funds are worth upward of $1 billion.
