Now, citing Sergio's research, satoshi mined a lot of BTC. In fact, almost (or exceeding) BTC
He has a distinct pattern of mining, and only one
block that is confirmed to belong to satoshi has been spent.
Below is a representation of the 50 BTC from that one block -- block 9 -- as they were just after being mined.
I've traced -- by hand -- where every single one of these coins have gone. See the chart below:
Green = Unspent, Gold = Spent Go packers
Now we've all read that the first p2p transaction that occurred was satoshi sending Hal 10 BTC as a test.
You can see this transaction above. It's the original 50 BTC splitting into 40 BTC and 10 BTC outputs.
He later sent 10 BTC to someone else, and then he sent 1 BTC to someone, and then he sent a total of 11 BTC to the same pseudonym,
which in my chain archaeology thread is referred to as Bbz. Bbz mined block 360, and then combined the coins from that block with the 11 he got from satoshi. Unfortunately, Bbz is no longer with us-- they vanished long before satoshi did. Maybe one day they'll find their 61 BTC and return to us.
Satoshi still has 18 BTC from this block.
The 10 BTC Hal got were probably donated to a couple organizations but I didn't look too far into it.
There's 1.69 BTC there left unspent. It's possible they belong to Hal, or a friend of his.
Two of the separate coins were mixed in with thousands of others into huge whalewallets.
That leaves 6.31 BTC. Well, they're still moving today, and it's highly
probable - unless your bitcoins are brand new - that there's a little bit of satoshi nakamoto's bitcoins in your wallet
Here are those 50 BTC split up accordingly:
As the first block ever spent (and for several days 100% of circulating bitcoins) it's interesting to see where all the coins wound up, and nice to know that we all probably have a little of their taint.
