OKEx CEO Jay Hao has taken to Twitter to warn traders that the crypto exchange is preparing to put its wallet under maintenance.

Meanwhile, Whale Alert has reported nearly twenty consecutive transactions from OKEx. Each one bears 20 mln USDT, making that 320 mln Tether in total.

In the comment thread to Jay Hao’s tweet, some also pointed to the aforementioned transactions, saying that the exchange has prepared well for the upcoming procedure.

However, a Twitter user @KoffiLatte07 sounds somewhat suspicious and critical about OKEx.

Users on Whale Alert are also sharing their criticisim:

Almost 300 Mln XRP Moved in Lump Sums as XRP Price Hits $0.23

Whale Alert also reports that 33 mln USDT has been sent to Binance from an unknown wallet. Considering the current Bitcoin price upsurge and that USDT is often used for transferring funds between crypto exchanges, it looks like someone could be preparing to buy some more BTC.
