Today, the PEPE multi-sig wallet sent over $15M worth of PEPE to three major centralized exchanges and one unknown wallet.

A breakdown of the transactions is as follows:

  • $8.3 million sent to OKX.
  • $6.6 million sent to Binance.
  • Bybit received roughly $440,000.
  • An unidentified wallet received $400,000.

Following these transactions, over $10 million worth of PEPE still remains in the multi-sig wallet.

Additionally, there has been a notable change in the multi-sig wallet’s security parameters. The developers have reduced the number of signatures required to approve transactions. Initially, the requirement was 5 out of 8 signatures (5/8). However, this changed to 2 out of 8 (2/8) on August 24 at 08:37 PM UTC.

The reasons for these transfers and the change in signature requirements are not clear as of now.

The PEPE team has not made any official comments recently. The last tweet from the PEPE Twitter account was two weeks ago.

PEPE is down 14% in the last 24 hours, according to data from CoinGecko.
