These don’t resemble typical mud assault transactions as the worth in every output is just too excessive at >0.01 LTC and they don’t seem to be constant. With out additional instruments to totally map and join these addresses its arduous to get a greater image of what’s taking place. At one level it seems to connect with an alternate / service pockets that has been used miltiple instances throughout 2017–19.
There may be additionally a connection to this pockets: (M893qmrU3PSwTrDVU7Cn3K4zxUWPKBmZkr) which seems to be consistently spamming the community with tons of of transactions a day.
