Mysterious “Bitcoin whale”
While the identities of the holders of the 4 richest Bitcoin portfolios are well known to us, the holder of the 5th largest Bitcoin portfolio remains anonymous. The mysterious whale first appeared on the horizon in July 2018. The last recorded transaction on his portfolio took place on 1 April 2019. Unofficially in the world of cryptocurrencies is said that the address of the portfolio belongs to a mysterious Asian billionaire. In his account he collected 85 947 BTC which translates into the equivalent of $541 911 568,00 USD.
The remaining 2 addresses of the portfolios in the top ten belong to the so-called “bitcoin zombies”, because in the last 18 months no outgoing transactions have been detected on these addresses. The last registered outgoing transaction was registered in 2015 and belonged to the address occupying the 9th place on the list.
