In a comment under a Whale Alert post, Poloniex stated that these mammoth-sized TRX withdrawals are happening between its own wallets and that there are likely to be more TRX transfers soon since the Tron-based DeFi is growing fast.

We are experiencing #TRX withdrawals to participate in #TRON yield farming, and are preparing 1.5 billion TRX from cold wallet to hot wallet. Please note this is an internal transaction btw exchange wallets. We can expect more fund transfers as the TRON DeFi continues to grow.

Apart from Poloniex, Binance also wired approximately 108 mln TRX, or $8,872,745.
