The document also says that before the entire amount was transferred from the QuadrigaCX wallet, test transactions were sent to the new addresses. For example, from the Ethereum address, which in court documents is listed as a “hot” wallet of the exchange, first 0.01 ETH was transferred, and after two hours - 960 ETH. Similarly, operations were carried out with Bitcoins.
Recall that in the previous EY report it says that the QuadrigaCX Exchange inadvertently moved more than 100 BTC to a “cold” wallet to which there is no access.
