Several large wallets were opened on this day, and almost the same minute, and have not been opened since then. Others were created and received great values. Were they just cold-wallets?

Sorry if that's a stupid question.

Sorry if that's a stupid question.

it is not a stupid question it is just a weird one! and in the wrong board! Smiley

you found some random addresses that got some deposits in them. it is a common thing, if you look around on the blockchain you can find hundreds of these nearly the same size. people move their coins sometimes. it is sometimes the old users who have coins from when price was really low ($20 for example) or from services that have been around for years (like btc-e for example) and they are moving either to sell or pay their customers from cold storage or just simply trying to claim their bitcoin cash reward.

in short this is very common and is happening almost every day.

Yes it is a stupid question.

https://blockchain.info/address/1HQ3Go3ggs8pFnXuHVHRytPCq5fGG8Hbhx

The address in question just received dust.
If you check the chain on blockchain you will see that almost all of the transactions are spam.
It was a "popular" and quite funny mode to advertise something in times when tx fee were ridiculous cheap.

So bottom line is that the wallet has not "opened", it just received some txs from somebody.
Just like now I can send some satoshi to that wallet but i'm to greedy to do it Smiley)).


ps.
Those two addresses are claimed to be somehow related to the never ending story of Mtgox

 stompix, So you are saying that a wallet with almost $300 millions USD is used just for spam?

You don't understand.

The wallet owner isn't doing anything. He is just receiving coins.
I could send one satoshi to each of the top 100 addresses in terms of BTC and you could do the same.

The mentioned address is used as a target for spam not doing the spam.

I checked a few of these wallets and the last outgoing transaction was made many months or years ago. Mostly in 2014 or 2015. It seems to me that all these wallets are used for cold storage of Bitcoins.

Yes. And this is usually done by those mixing services to hide who the real recipient of coins is (send a few satoshi to random addresses and hope that anyone tracking will focus on the random addresses, especially if they already have large balances, rather than the real address which is amongst them).

I get it now. You're right about that. But why did they all open on this day at such close times?

Hum, that is interest. Didn't know about that. Makes sense.

One of than https://blockchain.info/address/1AhTjUMztCihiTyA4K6E3QEpobjWLwKhkR have received a large amount from this one https://blockchain.info/pt/address/1GSFLSZJsGxdxKxNLQsGCYWi7WBqqxGHiW

That has received a large amount from this address: 1AhTjUMztCihiTyA4K6E3QEpobjWLwKhkR That I think was from a defunct exchange (2015-01-29). And most of the transactions usually send dust to big account.
