On the other hand, the Tether company is making every effort at its disposal to block any sale of USDT of these wallets, to which a block of + $ 40 million dollars is already confirmed, the one or those in charge of the hack are selling all cryptocurrencies by DAI, a decentralized stable currency.

So far the CEO and founder of FTX, Sam Bankman, has not spoken about it, while uncertainty remains whether it is really a hack or an internal looting that occurred.
