Robinhood Moves All 41B Dogecoin Into Single Wallet: What Could It Mean?

Popular retail stock and cryptocurrency brokerage Robinhood Markets Inc HOOD has moved all its Dogecoin DOGE/USD into a single wallet.

What Happened: A series of transactions picked up by blockchain wallet tracker Dogecoin Whale Alert found Robinhood has moved all 41 billion DOGE it holds to one address.

The new wallet address now holds 31% of all DOGE supply. According to data from BitInfoCharts, the total value of these 41 billion DOGE coins was worth $2.8 billion at the time of writing.

Although Robinhood made no announcement regarding the movement of these coins, market participants speculated that the cold wallet migration was likely done as part of a reorganization or for reasons related to security.

“Remember, when holding on any exchange/broker, your funds are held in a system of cold wallets and hot wallets,” wrote popular Dogecoin account Mishaboar on Twitter.
