Although it is unclear why Bitfinex transferred the funds to Alameda, the transactions have raised questions about the connections between the two firms.
Meanwhile, Alameda has been trying to recoup funds since its parent company FTX filed for bankruptcy in November 2022. Last week, the trading company sued Voyager Digital to recover the $446 million it repaid to the bankrupt crypto lender.
Despite the attempts to gather funds, a recent report revealed that Alameda’s liquidators incurred losses amounting to $11.5 million in the first two weeks of January.
