OKX has sent $8.3 million worth of cryptocurrency assets to Alameda Research in the past seven days through multiple transactions.
The transfers, which occurred on May 29, consisted of different cryptocurrencies, including Wrapped Bitcoin (WBTC), Celsius (CEL), Shiba Inu (SHIB), MakerDAO (MKR), Chiliz (CHZ), DAI, Axie Infinity (AXS), Magic Internet Money (MIM), and 19 others. The transfers involving WBTC, DAI, LEO, MIM, and SHIB were the top 5 with the highest monetary values, valued at a total of $4.8 million.
The exchange initially sent a series of test transactions involving all these assets to Alameda on May 23, with the transactions being worth $10 each. These transactions were intended to return FTX and Alameda’s frozen funds on the OKX platform. In March, OKX seized $157 million in cryptocurrency assets after FTX collapsed in November 2022. The latest transfers continue OKX‘s efforts to return these funds to their rightful owners.

In the past week, the bankrupt firm has transferred $10 million worth of USDT from its cold wallets to Coinbase Prime and deposited $31.2 million to the U.S.-based exchange. According to Arkham Intelligence, Alameda has transferred more than $250 million to Coinbase over the past month.
Alameda’s wallet contains digital assets worth approximately $314.7 million. Its largest holding is $56.4 million worth of USDT, followed by 100 million BitDAO (BIT) tokens valued at $51.4 million.
Its other top holdings include 19,292 Ethereum (ETH) worth $36.6 million, $12.35 million USDC, 40.45 million Stargate tokens worth $28.82 million, and 16.39 million Polygon tokens worth $14.74 million.
