According to comprehensive data from Spotonchain, the beleaguered company has moved a total of $78 million in crypto assets within a period of seven days.

Earlier in September, a crypto wallet also affiliated with the bankrupt exchange transferred $10 million worth of digital assets from the Solana (SOL) network to Ethereum, triggering discussions about potential implications amid the ongoing insolvency proceedings.

Meanwhile, the new developments come after a court-mandated phased liquidation process, enabling FTX to sell digital assets worth a total of $3 billion on a weekly basis.

The process stipulated a weekly sell-off cap, starting at $50 million, with the possibility of increasing up to $200 million per week, subject to approval from the creditors’ committee and ad hoc committee, following requisite court procedures.
