In total, firms transferred 250,000 Solana (SOL) ($13.5 million), 8.27 million Polygon (MATIC) ($7.41 million), and 1,500 Ether (ETH) ($3.1 million) to exchanges.

As of Nov. 14, the total value of assets transferred by FTX and Alameda to various exchanges is a staggering $438m, spread across 42 different tokens.

Against such impressive transfers, FTX liquidity is shrinking: only 3,408 SOL ($179,000) remains in cold storage. However, a huge cache of 42.2 million SOL ($2.19 billion) remains locked and will be gradually unfrozen from next year until 2027 or 2028.

Amid the movement of assets, the price of SOL fell 6.90% over the past 24 hours, to $54.47. MATIC, on the contrary, increased by 8.47% to $0.9622. The price of ETH remained virtually unchanged, falling only 0.43% (to $2,049.70 over the last 24 hours).

In early November, analysts said that FTX and Alameda moved addresses worth $50.5 million onto various exchanges. From Oct. 24 to Nov. 8, FTX and Alameda Research moved 36 assets worth $350 million, according to Spot On Chain .
