Ronin hackers moved tens of millions worth of stolen Ether through Tornado Cash in the past week

The entity behind Ronin’s unprecedented $655 million mining in March apparently moved tens of millions of stolen Ether (ETH) via the secure Tornado Cash protocol over the past week.

Activity over the past week from the miner’s primary address – tagged Ronin Bridge Exploiter on tracking service Etherscan – clearly shows that over 21,000 ether was moved in several transactions to different wallets.

The data shows that these funds were later transferred to privacy exchange Tornado Cash. The data shows that the miner has made some 100 Ether transactions per wallet from all of those wallets.
