On-chain data from analytics platform Nansen identifies wallets belonging to Mashinsky showing a steady stream of Celsius' CEL token and Circle's USDC stablecoin leaving his six wallets over the last month.

Coffezilla, a blockchain sleuth that exposes crypto scams on YouTube, claims to have spotted another wallet controlled by Mashinsky that has moved approximately $225,376 in CEL and USDC during the last month. Ownership of this wallet has not been confirmed by Nansen, however on-chain data shows that it's been funded by a confirmed Mashinsky wallet.

This is in addition to the $28,242 moved by Mashinsky in August over the course of a few days, and the nearly $27 million that was withdrawn by executives in two tranches before the firm declared bankruptcy.

According to on-chain data, Mashinsky’s collection of wallets still contains $197,301 worth of crypto, primarily comprised of CEL and USDC.
