40 Bitcoins at the current exchange rate correspond to about 400 thousand dollars.
As explained by Whale Alert, these BTCs were mined during the first month of Bitcoin's existence, so they are believed to belong to Satoshi Nakamoto.
How is it possible that these bitcoins moved?
The options are as follows:
- Satoshi Nakamoto is still alive (according to some theories, he died years ago);
- The wallet does not really belong to the creator of Bitcoin;
- Someone has taken possession of Satoshi's wallet legally (an inheritance?) Or otherwise.
Due to the fact that the Bitcoin blockchain is public, Whale Alert offers a transaction monitoring service, especially for the most famous wallets, whales, or exchange wallets.
It has recently been associated with Bitfinex to publish your posts on the exchange's social network, Bitfinex Pulse.
Who really is Satoshi Nakamoto?
The creator of Bitcoin has always been hidden under a pseudonym And nobody knows who he is, despite the fact that Satoshi interacted with various people in the industry in the early days when he wrote about his invention on the forums.
Recently, Adam Back he had been identified as Satoshi, but denied this claim; Meanwhile, it's Craig Wright that he is doing his best to prove that he is Satoshi, but with poor results that have also brought him to court several times.
Over the years, there has been a lot of speculation about Satoshi's identity: some say he is a woman, some say he is a group of people, some say he is dead and whatnot.
