First spotted by blockchain-tracking firm Lookonchain, the whale has already made three extremely clutch trades in the past, including selling Ethereum (ETH) at a local top, trading USDC for ETH before it lost its dollar peg and withdrawing all of its funds from crypto exchange FTX right before the bankrupt centralized platform suspended user withdrawals.
