Quick Take

  • Funds from the AnubisDAO rug pull are on the move for the first time as the hackers have funnelled 1,018 ETH via Tornado Cash.
  • $60 million was stolen from the AnubisDAO project in October 2021.

A wallet address associated with last year's suspected AnubisDAO rug pull has begun to move funds from the heist, according to an alert by PeckShield on Friday.

Etherscan data shows an address it had tagged as AnubisDAO Liquidity Rug 3 moving a total of 1,097 ETH ($1.3 million) to another address. The intermediary address has since laundered 1,018 ETH ($1.18 million) via Tornado Cash.

AnubisDAO was a dog-themed crypto project promoted as a fork of OlympusDAO. The project raised 13,597 ETH, worth $60 million at the time, by selling its native token ANKH to investors.
