After being released, Sam Bankman-Fried sent all of his remaining crypto to a new Ethereum address he created hours earlier. In less than three hours, more than 100 deposits were made to numerous addresses with certain ties to SBF’s Alameda Research.

Recently, 570 Ethereum worth about $700,000 were transferred to various destinations, including a Seychelles-based no-KYC exchange and the Bitcoin network via the bridge. Such operations have already been considered suspicious because they could hint at an unpleasant fact: the SBF is preparing to carry out.
Anonymous investigators on the chain even decided to share the data with prosecutors’ lawyers, as SBF’s actions at this point show that its intentions to work with the prosecution and in the interest of FTX clients could be misleading.
It is possible that Sam Bankman-Fried and his colleagues will be liquidated, even if the shares in the chain do not look like this. It is not yet clear whether his accounts are controlled by SBF itself or by third parties, which would explain the current behavior of the entrepreneur.
