As you can see, Binance moved $3.9 billion worth of USDT from its “Binance-Cold 2” wallet on Tron to “Binance 3”.
This transfer, one of the largest ever recorded on the Tron blockchain, left approximately $3.6 billion USDT in “Binance 3” after an additional sum of $300 million USDT was transferred to another wallet.
An Overview of the $4 Billion Agreement
On November 20th, Bloomberg reported that the DOJ was negotiating an agreement with Binance. According to this agreement, the cryptocurrency platform is expected to pay $4 billion in fines to resolve criminal charges.
