Bitfinex tries to correct the registration
A current tweet from Zack Voell (@Zackvoell) caused a sensation. It has been shown that Bitfinex has withdrawn more than 176,000 BTC in the past 30 days. It was an impressive number that caught the attention of many people.
Bitfinex’s CTO, Paolo ArdoinoHe hurried to comment that it was apparently wrong because “he is not considering changing direction”. He added: “Finex is definitely in the middle of some big OTC deals, but the number still seems to me to be wrong.”
The culprit was apparently that ViewBase, which was responsible for compiling these numbers, incorrectly counted the bech32 addresses. A correction has since been made, but the numbers remain high.
ViewBase finds that now 52,542 BTC ($ 407 million) was recently withdrawn from Bitfinex 30 days. For comparison: Kraken with 4,892 BTC (USD 38 million) was the exchange with the second highest number of withdrawals during this period.

Tether Treasury is currently reporting that, according to its transparency report, over USD 7.5 trillion has been spent. For comparison: On April 19, the $ 7 billion mark was exceeded.
