Some of the inputs of the outputs are quite old, as old as 2011 June. Edit, looks like an old miner.

Beautiful, so effortless to move so much money.

I'm sometimes involved with very large cross-border transactions and the logistics of making payments of this size are, more often that not, a complete PITA, with timezones and banking hours getting in the way.

Could this be satoshi? Some of the inputs(and I mean from going backwards and backwards in the trace) are as old 2010 February and owned by a single miner who donated 500btc to a faucet once.

I would use the Armory client and it's offline wallet feature.

You don't need a vault to protect a bitcoin wallet, that's the beauty of it.

People kill other people for thousands.

If someone knew it was on a computer I'm sure there are MANY people that would be willing to kill for $147M and steal the computer.

Offline clients are safer than online, but not safer than paper wallets.

I'd bury a paper wallet if it held that many BTC.

Probably just an old miner or entrepreneur, early adopter with capital willing to risk.

Something tells me it is a like gox/bitstamp/coinbase/<insert other bitcoin company> moving funds offline or something.

Also another possibility.

It is pretty crazy but this isn't the first instance of seeing this happen.

There are many early adopters that trusted the idea and are now reaping the profits.

going back to the earliest transaction won't be much of a clue. you don't know how many times and if those coins ever changed hands or not.

it could however provide some ideas though

True. I am wondering if it isn't that lazslo guy, that bought two pizza for 10k BTC. Since he donated 500btc to the faucet, and I saw he posted something like that, and it is around the same time.

I would assume that someone who wanted to sell this many coins wouldn't deposit at an exchange to trade them... unless of course they wanted to absolutely destroy the trade price of the asset they are trying to sell. Which doesn't seem very smart to me.

I would contend that "destroying the trade price" on exchanges would be a smart move at this stage for large coin holders, or at least not strictly dumb.  It would dissuade some speculatory investment and get more coin in circulation for use as currency to buy goods and services.  The coin concentration problem is a very real one.

Huge speculative buys on exchanges are great for short term gain, but not nearly as good for long term currency status.  Large coin holders will want to sell as little of their coin as possible if they are looking to maximize pure profit; but if they want the idea of decentralized money to take off using Bitcoin, they need adoption rate for merchants and consumers to steadily increase as well.  If they continue to hold tightly, we probably end up with Bitcoin as primarily a store of value, which negates or dulls many of its other useful features.

We will see how many of the early adopters/innovators believe in the idea of Bitcoin, and how many were simply driven by greed.  So far, with the amount of old coins sitting idle, I'd say we can see where it's going unless something changes.  That said, I am curious where these coins will go.  Smiley

Exactly. Encryption is a powerful tool and Bitcoin allows us to use that tool to protect our money.

I'd bury an encrypted paper wallet if it held that many BTC (sadly Armory does not allow for the printing of encrypted paper wallets, so you must find another way).

INB4 $5 wrench.

Actually etothepi is releasing a new version of Armory today which works with Ubuntu 10.04 that allows for printing encrypted paper wallets.

How long does it take to make it into the Bitcoin Days Destroyed charts?
Here is the 30 day chart and there is no rise from this transfer:
https://blockchain.info/charts/bitcoin-days-destroyed?timespan=30days&showDataPoints=false&daysAverageString=30&show_header=true&scale=0&address=

I have solace knowing that this is not going to be a dump as it is an old school long time holder. But might start selling some, taper the fast rise some.

I know that I know nothing. And therefore I know more than those who don't know that they know nothing.

Will someone test what is the real market cap?
9,294,822,550 USD

You must be an absolute fool to believe that 9.2 billion USD actually flowed into Bitcoin.

I have solace knowing that this is not going to be a dump as it is an old school long time holder.

Or was confiscated from an old school long time holder.

Confiscated implies some wrongdoing. I see nothing to warrant an accusation like that.
There's nothing to imply "rightdoing." This could be Queen Elizabeth II's stash of Bitcoins from selling cocaine on Silk Road for all we know.

It is an old miner. Old miners were mostly believers in BTC. It had no value back then. If they didn't believe they would have sold by now.

If someone wants to dump that many coins it would hurt the seller dumping them at once. Clearly they would be doing it to kill confidence and the price. That would be temporary. They would have to sell them across the big 4 exchanges. That would probably bring the price down to the 200's or 300's judging by the market depth.

All conjecture at this point but I have faith in an old miner. Time will tell, that much we can agree on.

Market cap does not mean the amount of money that flowed into a stock. It is a simple metric, number of outstanding shares times the price.
Perhaps think before name calling.

Some seem to believe it does. Obviously Ekaros hinted at that by mentioning 'real market cap'. Bitcoin has not enough liquidity to live up to that number of 9 Billion, not even close. That number by 50 is what you could get out if you wanted, maybe.

I'm not sure I follow you. If we look at the order book, there is a pretty solid number that we know (how many buyers below, sellers above - though manipulated). There are also orders not on the orderbook - and perhaps they dwarf it.

Well, anyway, with all that BTC represents, perhaps it is fair to say that it deserves a HUGE market cap. We have a stock (in the network), asset, currency, protocol, development platform, commodity, etc. all in one. And, it is in the financial sector during a time of crisis. We have a new entity and by all measure, it certainly seems to be moving up in an S-Curve fashion.

I would not be shocked in 5 years to see the "market cap" at 1 Trillion USD. But likewise, I would not be shocked (just saddened if the mission was not accomplished or set in motion) if it was lower than now.

I wonder why everyone is just writing bunch of random names of random people that allegedly have a big amount of coins.
Wouldn't it be more likely that Satoshi is moving some of his coins around?

Seems reckless to keep that many coins in one wallet.  Why not break it up into 10 wallets with 20,000 bitcoins each?

Seems foolish if they really are moving them to cash out.  Why not wait a couple years until bitcoins are $5,000+ and become one the world's first Bitcoin Billionaires?

That would equate to ~$75,000 USD per bitcoin. Do you realize how much barn wood I could buy with that? And earn 500% profit when I sell it. I can...let me do the math...WoW! I can buy a new truck... and a couple goats.

No transaction fee lol.

Probably not on purpose.

BlockChain is doing that by default now.
high priority transaction don't need a fee.

and I really doubt anyone is holding $147M on blockchain.

True - didn't think of that.

I wonder where one stores $147M in BTC...

Mhmm...  A vault? Lol.

Oh, hey, whoever you are, vtc.com is for sale for about 12,500 BTC at current rates, and I'm willing to do the escrow. I think its priced in fiat, just using BTC to do the trade. It was going for 75,000 BTC last month, but the USD rate then was only 133 per BTC.

About coin distribution..

Because Bihthttp://bitcoinrichlist.com/top100p://bitcoinrichlist.com/top100coin are not mainstream yet, for sure only a very small proportion of the population own Bitcoin.  Some own a lot.  If we compare the coin distribution compared to the fiat distribution, I think fiat currencies are much more concentrated in the pocket of a few.

Bitcoin : 30% in the top 500 wallet..   http://bitcoinrichlist.com/top100

I beleive that more then 80% of all fiat currencies are in the pocket of less than 500 human beings..

So, even if not yet mainstream, Bitcoins are much more distributed than other currencies.

As the Bitcoin ecosystem grows, it should become even more distributed.

Gratz to the whealty ones, they search for alternatives and found BTC.  They also understood the true power of it, and had strong hands to be able not to sell.  They are rightfully whealty, by merit !

You realize that someone who wanted full current value for his coins (and sanity for the bitcoin economy itself) would not kill the price; he'd just stop the price from rising quite so fast.  Offer a bunch of coins at $1000 setting up a "wall" there that takes a week or so to break, even with newbies getting in as fast as they can, then let it roll for a little while and set up another "wall" at $1200, etc.  People with that kind of money can choose to just plain *stop* the price from going hyperbolic (and then crashing) when mainstream adoption kicks in. 

And that may be what they're getting ready to do.  We've been with the highs and the crashes for years, but we're not the mainstream yet.  The mainstream would be terrified to get into something and *then* discover that it's as volatile as it's been for us.

Anyway, someone with this kind of coin can do a lot to dampen volatility.
