Kanro’s Role in the Transfers

One notable example is the recent transfers made by Kanro, a charity closely affiliated with Vitalik Buterin. Approximately 15.43 million USDC was transferred, with 500,000 USDC going to Coinbase on Oct. 14 and 14.93 million USDC sent to Gemini on Oct. 16. Kanro, introduced by Buterin on June 9, 2023, primarily receives funding from Crypto Relief, led by the Polygon founder and Buterin himself. The charity’s mission is to research global solutions for pandemics and potential future epidemics.

Air of Mystery and Speculation

Despite Buterin’s attempts to clarify the situation, the enigmatic nature of his recent activities continues to raise eyebrows. While some questions have been answered, there is still a lingering air of mystery surrounding his transactions, leaving many intrigued. As the crypto world speculates about motives, it seems there might be more to this story than meets the eye.
