I was shook by this post here and had to immediately check if it’s true: https://www.reddit.com/r/CryptoCurrency/comments/pnsiq6/a_big_chunk_of_bitcoin_is_being_moved_around_at/
So apparently, the 45’000 BTC do not belong to FTX anymore and they’re slowly being peeled. As per the statement of FTX’s CEO (https://twitter.com/SBF_FTX/status/1437460791188467712?s=19), all should be well.
Now here comes my proof that the 45’000 BTC are still in full custody of FTX and nobody should be concerned (I know I was!)
I just withdrew 0.01 BTC from FTX as you can see in this transaction:
And here is the transaction to my Wallet on chain: https://blockchair.com/bitcoin/transaction/10c57fe4b8449c8353e74c04b6954782245c1a6b0ea3f9515b51f7515262567d?from=ftx
It I received the 0.01 BTC from the 45’000 BTC moving stack. The funds are 100% still in control of FTX.
Obviously, there is nothing to worry about and I cannot believe that nobody has tested this so far.
