I'm super interested in the story of the "Bitcoin Millionaires" and we've all heard of the millionaire-dollar pizza, guy loses 7,500 bitcoins in the trash, kid makes millions before turning 18, guy forgets he has millions of bitcoins on his old hard-drive and finds it again then buys a house, and other uber-early investors making big money, but I wanted to take a quick look to see if there were more people we don't even know their name.

I've dug down to the top 2,000 BTC addresses and have found just a few that were obvious early investors that are still active.

What I have found is the many of the 10k, 5k, 2.5k, 1k total BTC addresses have definitely been moved around and are still active to some degree (this year), but there's little selling in those accounts. I suspect some rich folks said "Sure, I'll buy into this thing" and the don't care to monitor it themselves, probably don't even own their own keys (scary). Or it's a very few people just spreading out their coins into multiple addresses.

I found at least a few hundred addressed that were definitely early investors but haven't outputted anything for several years, so they either lost their keys or forgot about it completely.


So the following addresses are the ones I found that are definitely early-investors and have made millions off their investment but we may never know who they are, there are untold stories here that's very interesting:

https://bitinfocharts.com/bitcoin/address/16g2TW2hbFoov3DThSRBdnETaS94bFvq5v
"I have adopted early, and put lots of money into BTC in the $5-$20 range, started cashing out some around $100, then during mid-to-late 2013 rush I made some BIG cash, but didn't sell everything, still holding a good 2,700 BTC."

https://bitinfocharts.com/bitcoin/address/19xjndVpGTqmFAC1ZL3gV6MpxJUMkvqSrd
"Mid-2011 I bought up large-sums in the $10-$20 scene, I sold some a couple years later for 4x profit, but I believe in BTC and am still holding strong."

https://bitinfocharts.com/bitcoin/address/1BgD7Hng1dMJheysegwdbZYYUjwUimVUxP
"I bought and bought, then bought some more, between 2011 to Q1 2013 where I made it BIG on a sell. Just selling a few to pay some bills now, but looking at my $3m BTC fortune is great. Still holding."

https://bitinfocharts.com/bitcoin/address/1PwWbe2zpLmcrm4f86U4cnHNuBnETaYzJs
"Bought early, and big amounts. Was able to hold 5 years before buying my 2 lambos."

I can only imagine their story, based on the time of their send/receive amounts. I'd love to have been in that position they were. It's almost as some have simply forgotten about BTC altogether then suddenly realized they are millionaires.

Feel free to donate BTC to the address in my signature.

Asking for donations is considered begging, no? That's pretty well frowned upon here. You'd be better off putting the request in your signature..."If my information has helped you, you can help me at [enter your bitcoin address here]"

As for the addresses, are the quotes something you made up? If so, this reads like a tabloid.

An address is not the same as a person.

Thanks, edited the post.

Yes, something I made up based on when inputs and outputs were made in relation to the BTC price. Just a wild imagination about blockchain possibilities.
