According to the latest updates, the stolen ETH is moving again. According to CoinHolmes, an address starting with 0xe5fe63 saw a 500 ETH transmission to the address 0xad00f59e4105b5cb3b849c286bc0399eeabf183a. An address starting with 0xad00f5 translated most of this ETH into Binance. In addition, the hacker is still “on the move for further transfers.”

Many other exchanges, including OKEx, Huobi Global, KuCoin and Changelly, have also expanded their support for Upbit and shared that they will stop any hacked funds for their exchange. Now that Binance has received part of the hacked funds, it remains to be seen whether Binance will accept the notification of the transfer and freeze the funds.
