The hacker behind the theft of more than $447 million of crypto from the crypto exchange FTX has been again spotted moving their ill-gotten funds.

According to Etherscan data, between 4:11 to 4:17 pm UTC on November 21, the attacker moved a total of 180,000 Ether (ETH) across 12 newly created wallets — each receiving 15,000 ETH.

The total amount moved totaled $199.3 million at current prices. At the time of publication, the ETH has not moved from any of the 12 wallets.

Some in the crypto community suggest the attacker may be planning to subdivide it into smaller and smaller amounts in order to confuse investigators, a process known as “peel chaining,” or they may be planning to use a mixing service at some point to obscure which coins are theirs.Meanwhile, some Ethereum users appear to have sent coded messages to the hacker asking for a share of the loot.One user registered the Ethereum Name Service (ENS) domain name, “ftx-rekt200k-pls-help.eth” to express that they have lost money from the FTX collapse and to ask for a reimbursement from the hacker.
