Basically, 50 Bitcoins from the Satoshi era just moved. In any case, to be sent to a wallet, owned by Bitfinex. Today, those 50 Bitcoins are worth about $ 527,120.
To remember, these Bitcoins were mined in May 2010. Since then, the owner has kept those BTCs. But, he waited to move them to Bitfinex.
Actually, the move was picked up by BTC parsers. A Telegram bot that tracks Bitcoin transactions.
In these circumstances, some people have opined on this movement:
- The Bitcoins were mined by Satoshi himself. Or its associates.
- It is just an old Bitcoin that has gathered dust.
- Others link the transfer to price movements.
In general, this is good for Bitcoin, apparently, because a bull run would be on the way. It is undoubted that in May, Bitcoin fell 7% after the movement. But, since the coins moved on October 1, Bitcoin has only dropped 1%, from 10,642 to 10,546.
50 Bitcoins just moved
Importantly, BTCs were mined during Bitcoin’s first month. And he hadn’t moved since.
Of course, social media signed up with the rumor. That these Bitcoins could belong to Satoshi.
Obviously, the movement of funds has already led many to speculate on the origins of the owner of the wallet.
In this regard, the Bitcoin analyst Joseph Young, He said: “There are not many people who can do this, perhaps Satoshi’s close associates. My question is why, not who, sends 50 Bitcoins for the first time in over 10 years«.
As a curious fact, when Bitcoin was mined, on February 9, 2009, it had no value. Until on May 22, Laszlo Hanyecz bought two pizzas for 10,000 Bitcoin. At that time, worth around $ 20. In fact, this day is now celebrated as Bitcoin Pizza Day.
Who is Satoshi Nakamoto?
It is the fictitious name of the person or, conversely, a group of tech-savvy people. Although his identity is uncertain, there are several versions of his real identity. Obviously, some versions charge more weight than others.
Among the people who, it has been rumored, could be the real Satoshi, are:
- Nick szabo
- Dorian nakamoto
- Hal finney
- Craig steven wright
- Bram cohen
- Vincent Van Volkmer
In any case, crypto experts agree that the code is too well developed to be the work of a single person. Therefore, the identity of Satoshi Nakamoto remains a mystery.
The Satoshi era
The coins are known as from the “Satoshi era”. Because they were mined at the time when the pseudonym creator of Bitcoin, Satoshi Nakamoto, was still participating in the development of it.
The truth is that Satoshi was active for the last time, on December 13, 2010.
Would Satoshi Nakamoto’s return to the Bitcoin world be appropriate for 2020? Leave us your opinion in the comment box.
I say goodbye with this phrase from Satoshi Nakamoto: “If you don’t believe me or you don’t understand, I don’t have time to try to convince you, I’m sorry”.
