Bitfinex also published its public wallets in its GitHub: https://github.com/bitfinexcom/pub/blob/main/wallets.txt. iFinex Inc., the parent company of Bitfinex, holds: 204338.17967717 BTC (among top Bitcoin holders), 2018.5 L-BTC (Liquid), ~1000 BTC on the Lightning Network, 1225600 ETH (among top Ethereum holders).
Bitfinex is also fully committed to providing transparency on the health of the exchange, and four years ago began working on an in-house opensource library called Antani (https://github.com/bitfinexcom/antani), and it’s web-ui implementation (Ballot https://github.com/bitfinexcom/ballot) to demonstrate exchange-wide proof of reserves. Antani is a #nodejs library for efficiently proving solvency and delegated off-chain voting for crypto exchanges.
Bitfinex is committed to continue to develop and implement the Ballot solution in order to provide periodic proof of reserves.
