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

While Robinhood made no announcement about the move of these coins, market participants speculated that the cold wallet migration was likely done as part of a reorganization or for security reasons.

As we assumed, @Robin Hood finished migrating money in their cold wallet to a new address. This is *probably* a reorganization or for security reasons.

“Remember, when you hold an exchange/broker, your money is kept in a system of cold wallets and hot wallets,” the popular Dogecoin account Mishaboar wrote on Twitter.

When you decide to hold on #doge in this way, but you accept the terms of the exchange/broker’s terms of service.
In general, your #crypto on each platform is mostly uninsured apart from crime insurance that allows an exchange to get some of your money back.
