Sam Bankman-Fried, the former CEO of the now-defunct FTX exchange, has denied moving funds tied to Alameda wallets, days after he was released on a $250 million bond.

On Dec. 30, Fried tweeted to his 1.1 million followers, denying any involvement in the movement of funds from Alameda wallets.  In response to the allegations that he may have been responsible for moving funds out of Alameda wallets, he shared: “None of these are me. I’m not and couldn’t be moving any of those funds; I don’t have access to them anymore.”

SBF’s tweet was in response to a news story published by Cointelegraph, which reported that a wallet address that started with 0x64e9 had received over 600 ETH from wallets that belonged to Alameda. According to on-chain transactional records, part of the funds were swapped to USDT while the other part of the transaction was sent to a mixing service.

The movement of funds and the manner in which it was moved raised suspicions within the crypto community that it may have been an inside job. Some suspected that SBF may have been behind it. The Alameda wallet was found to be swapping bits of ERC-20s for Ether and USDT, which were then funneled through instant exchanges and mixers.
