Is there a way to do a comparison of the "old" BitCoins versus new? For example, let's say Nakamoto mined 500k coins early on, then stopped. That would mean there's a wallet.dat file out there with 500k BTC. Is it possible to check the idleness of BitCoins? If there's a large percentage of Dark Coins out there, then is there a danger of a pump and dump?

You should be able to use the Block Explorer (, or just the block chain itself, to find addresses with no recent transactions, and then total up their balances to get a sense of the number of idle Bitcoins.

I'm not sure but I feel like you might be interested in looking up "bitcoin days destroyed".
