Mystery Whale Returns by Moving $35 Million — Miner Transfers 1,000 ‘Sleeping Bitcoins’ from 2010 – Bitcoin News
Two months after the mysterious 2010 mining whale rolled out a series of 20 block rewards of 1,000 bitcoin on March 23, the company appeared to be done after having spent a total of 10,000 bitcoin. However, it took 78 days for the whale to move on, as another 20 blocks were transferred on Wednesday from 2010 after Bitcoin had been idle for more than a decade. Despite the fact that Bitcoin’s value is much lower today than it was a month ago, on Wednesday morning (EST) the Mystery Whale issued 1,000 Bitcoin worth $ 35 million on Wednesday morning (EST), at block height 686,865.
The mysterious whale of 2010 is back, 1,000 ten-year-old bitcoins are on the move
Last year and through 2021, Bitcoin.com News researched a mysterious whale that issues a series of 2010 block rewards following the same pattern every time the company transfers coins. The strings are exactly 20 decade-old block rewards that contain 50 Bitcoin (BTC) each and are also output in a block.
The last time the old school whale from Satoshi’s era moved coins was on March 23, 2021. The mining company now has another concession of 20 block rewards from 2010 on Wednesday, June 9, 2021 Block height 686,865 moved.
Every block bonus issued today was phased out in 2010 between August and October of this year. Each block reward contained 50 BTC and when they were spent, the coins became too an addressthat at once 999.99. held BTC.
As usual, Bitcoin.com News has been tracking this particular whale entity, and the “sleeping bitcoins” that woke up Wednesday morning were caught by Btcparser.com. The consolidated address then distributed the $ 35 million worth of cryptocurrency to a variety of different addresses.
The 2010 zombie coins issued today followed the exact same pattern as the 10,000 decade-old bitcoins that were previously issued. The grand total is now 11,000 coins issued since last year when Bitcoin.com News first saw the whale awaken.
It all started on March 12, 2020. From there October 11, 2020, November 7, 2020, November 8, 2020, December 27, 2020, January 3, 2021 (Bitcoin 12th anniversary), January 10, 2021, November 25, 2020 January 2021, February 28, 2021, March 23, 2021 and then today’s editions.
There hasn’t been a Bitcoin whale like this in ages
Since the Bitcoin bull run began, whales have been doing the old school mysterious movementsbut this whale in particular was quite strange. In addition to the 1,000 BTC issued on Wednesday, the whale also moved the corresponding bitcoin cash (BCH) in a consolidated address that contained 1,001 BCH.
As with the previous patterns, however, the whale did not transfer the corresponding bitcoins (BSV) Tokens, as these coins are still idle in their original Coinbase addresses. The BCH Spending was over $ 600,000 at the time of transfer and the BCH was also distributed to countless different addresses.
The crypto community still has no idea who that particular 2010 whale is, but the whale certainly mined a large number of coins in the early days. It’s also worth noting that the terms “spent” or “spent” in the world of bitcoins simply mean transferring from one address to another.
The terms “spent” or “spent” do not necessarily mean that the bitcoins were “sold” to a third party, like a popular crypto exchange. However, since the mysterious whale has been moving coins since “Black Thursday” 2020, our onchain analysis at Bitcoin.com News shows the 11,000. at BTC may have been sent to a known exchange.
