Unusual activity has been observed involving a wallet owned by the bankrupt U.S. crypto broker Voyager and the popular Shiba Inu token, SHIB. Yesterday, the wallet received a staggering 14.24 billion SHIB, equivalent to an astonishing $107,353.
According to explorer data, the source of funds for the Voyager wallet was a hot wallet belonging to renowned centralized crypto exchange Kraken. This transaction raises several eyebrows due to its peculiarity.
Earlier that day, a significant amount of Shiba Inu tokens, worth over $1.5 million and totaling 200 billion, were transferred from the Voyager account to two separate addresses. These tokens were subsequently dispersed across various addresses, including several centralized exchanges.
What adds to the intrigue is the fact that despite being bankrupt, the broker's wallet still retains an enormous amount of SHIB — 1.875 trillion to be exact — equivalent to a staggering $14.23 million. Therefore, the acquisition of an additional 14 billion tokens appears perplexing and raises further suspicion.
The situation surrounding Voyager has recently seen some developments, as withdrawals were reopened on June 23. Since then, approximately $320 million worth of crypto assets have been withdrawn from the platform by clients. However, a considerable sum of $107 million remains on the platform.
As the story unfolds, it remains to be seen how this unexpected turn of events will impact the Shiba Inu token market.
