On December 27, a wallet associated to Bankman-Fried sent 0.66 Ethereum to an Ethereum wallet that was created in 0x7386. The original wallet was tweeted out by SBF in September 2020. It received 569.95 ETH from dozens more wallets within five hours. Alameda Research is tagged as one of these wallets on Etherscan. It then sent 519.95 ETH to a wallet that was starting in 0x64e9. Although this wallet was brand new, it already had 800,000 USDT in its possession before the ETH transaction. The 800,000 USDT sent to four addresses previously, which were then combined into one wallet beginning in 0x4e5b. According to Etherscan that wallet belongs to FixedFloat, a centralized exchange. 0x64e9 then swapped most of its 519.95 Ethereum for USDT. For 10.33 renBTC, 200,000 USDT was again swapped. The funds were then bridged into Ren, which ensures full transaction privacy. Another 200,000 USDT was then sent to three wallets, and consolidated again in a wallet beginning with 0xbb3fd. Nansen flags this wallet as belonging to Binance. The remaining 310.85 ETH were sent to eight wallets and consolidated again on a wallet beginning in 0x077d.
