Moved 13,000 BTC in 20 months — Mysterious miner transferred another 20-year block reward in 2010 — Bitcoin News
Two days ago, on November 10th, a mysterious whale transferred 20 block rewards from 2010 and witnessed the movement of $68 million worth of bitcoins 1,000 years ago at the time of the transfer. Two days later, on November 12, the miners in 2010 returned again to transfer another string of 20 block rewards in 2010, which was worth about $64 million at the time of delivery.
After transferring 1,000 bitcoins 2 days ago, the giant whale of 2010 is back
Last year, Bitcoin.com News, a member of the Telegram research group Global Financial Information System, And creator of Bitcoin parser Found an extraordinary Bitcoin (Bitcoin) Starting in 2010, a whale that spends 20 blocks at a time as a block reward. To date, this whale has transferred 13,000 bitcoins from the 2010 mining block. At today’s exchange rate, it’s close to 1 billion U.S. dollars (829 million U.S. dollars), but this whale transferred 13,000 at different times Bitcoin price range.
That day Bitcoin (BTC) At a record high on Wednesday, November 10, the mysterious whale returns for the first time since June 9, 2021. Two days later, on Friday, November 12, the whale came back and spent 1,000 bitcoins out of 20 bitcoins for the block reward from a decade ago. These types of bitcoins are called “dormant bitcoins” because they have not left the original address since they were mined. There are a lot of “sleeping bitcoins”, and because of the age of these blocks, on-chain researchers like to find out the spending from 2009 to 2013.
For example, the 2009 block reward transfer derived from a block mined on February 9, 2009 was May 20, 2020 last year. The 2010 block rewards that have been idle for more than ten years are rarely spent ten years later, but this particular whale mined a lot of bitcoins at that time. So far, the entity has moved on 13 different occasions (3/12/20 – 10/11/20 – 11/7/20 – 11/8/20 – 12/27/20 – 1/3) 20 block rewards since 2010/21 – 1/10/21 – 1/25/21 – 2/28/21 – 3/23/21 – 6/9/21 – 11/10/21 – 11/ 12/21).
The 13th large-scale whale sighting-13,000 Bitcoins have been distributed so far
Today’s block reward expenditure is the block reward that has been transferred at block height 709,305 for 20 consecutive times since 2010. Just like the 20 block reward transfer in the previous two days, the mysterious miner spent the corresponding Bitcoin Cash (Bitcoin cash) Too. The miner did not transfer 1000 Bitcoin sv (BSV), and these coins are still idle today. All bitcoins (Bitcoin) Merged into This address Then 1,000 Bitcoin Is distributed to wallets holding 10 Bitcoin Every address. Bitcoin Cash (Bitcoin cash) Merged into one wallet With 1,000 Bitcoin cash These coins are distributed to hold 50 Bitcoin cash Every address.
According to Blockchair Privacy measurement tools, 1,000 Bitcoin Since 2010, mobile has encountered “serious” privacy issues. Five privacy issues are related to whale transactions, including matching inputs and outputs. Blockchair uses more than 100 indicators to measure the privacy score of Bitcoin transactions. Our research friends on the GFIS chain think the movement of this whale is very interesting.
“This is the 13th awakening that our team has noticed because we have been analyzing the Bitcoin blockchain,” GFIS told our news station. “What’s more interesting is that these awakenings and the way of allocating funds are always the same,” added the on-chain researcher. GFIS continued:
The original bitcoins mined in 2010 are taken out and transferred to the P2SH address (which may perform the escrow address function), and then the funds are mainly distributed between the bech32 addresses, and the amount of each wallet is 10 bitcoins.
The creator of Btcparser.com also pointed out that there are very few legacy addresses (7) and more P2SH addresses (65), and most of them are bech32 addresses (125 in total-5 P2WSH and 120 P2WPKH). “In terms of fund distribution, 96 addresses received exactly 10 bitcoins,” the researcher commented. “One received 32 and the other received 7.27. The 99 addresses received less than 1 Bitcoin in total (more precisely, the average is 0.006498879).”
Today’s transfer, if converted to U.S. dollars, 1,000 Bitcoin At the time of the transaction, stash was worth $64 billion.corresponding Bitcoin cash It was worth $656,000 at the time of the original transfer.
