In the letter
- Bitcoin from 2010 has just been moved to another address.
- Bitcoin has gained in value since its last move – and is now worth $ 15.5 million.
- It is not known why the coins were moved, but it is likely that the owner would have been in contact with the creator of Bitcoin.
Bitcoin worth $ 15.5 million that had previously remained in inactive wallets has just moved.
The Satoshi era Bitcoin was transferred yesterday after not having been touched since 2010. The transfer of Bitcoin consisted of 20 blocks, with 1000 Bitcoin in each block.
It is not known who moved the Bitcoin or why they decided to transfer it to an address other than that of the Satoshi era. coins were mined in 2010, when the currency was worth peanuts.
“Satoshi Era” Bitcoin refers to the coins mined when the pseudonymous Bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto was still communicating with the crypto world. Nakamoto’s identity is still unknown and no one has heard from him since 2010.
If the owner of the coins moved yesterday were to sell them now, the profits would be astronomical: in 2010, 1 Bitcoin was worth less than $ 0.10. Today the cryptocurrency is trading for $ 15,342.56, according to at CoinMarketCap.
This is not the first time this year that Bitcoin which previously collected dust has been moved.
Last month, $ 11.4 million worth of Bitcoin was moved. He was also in an inactive portfolio since 2010.
It is likely that the owners of Bitcoin were among the first cryptocurrency miners. Maybe they even know who Nakamoto is.
