Around $100M in Bitcoins stolen from Bitfinex in 2016 has been moved. Monitoring resource Whale Alert has identified 14 transactions.

In total, 7,045.48 BTCs have been transferred by unidentified users. The largest transaction was the last one, which amounted to 2,000 BTCs (about $38.8M at press time).

The last time the funds stolen from Bitfinex were moved was in early October, when transactions worth $26M were made. The attack to the crypto trading platform took place in August 2016, and as a result of it the attackers stole 120,000 Bitcoins.

Bitfinex offered a $400M reward this summer in an attempt to recover the Bitcoins stolen from the platform. The exchange also offered hackers the possibility of returning the cryptos voluntarily in exchange for a reward of 25% of the total amount.
