It looks like the note was attached to the transaction under it.

Is that supposed to be the DPR stash?

If so it is rather interesting that all of those funds have now moved.

I just checked the individual links and you are correct. The note is part of the tiny transaction.

One of Satoshi's wallets perhaps? It is ~US$90M @ current rates

Okay. Damn, that would have been some excitement if the note was for the 150K.

Just BitStamp switching cold wallets (or actually refilling hot wallet with 3K btc it seems?)

Funds are Bitstamp's cold wallet.

Quote
Check out: https://www.bitstamp.net/s/documents/Bitstamp_proof_of_reserves_statement.pdf

https://blockchain.info/nl/address/1EFJUipfCHFmmTFkF9vvjFKdBf3VbfvarM is the cold wallet address according to the pdf.

Then follow the BTC a couple transactions further and you will end up at https://blockchain.info/nl/address/1AZVcgGjb64XYzmAXwQyWCmvsZriQoiJw which made the 175k+ BTC transaction.

Follow the BTC from the 1AZV address and you will end up at this address.

Thanks - so it is the richest single address - I wonder why all the small amounts with messages were being sent to it.

There are many people having a look at the blockchain.info page of an address that big.

So these small amounts are just attention whores, beggars hoping some idiot donates to them, people advertising their crappy sites, some even linking to a scamming site, etc. Sometimes the messages are funny though.

Yeah - mostly just stupid stuff - hadn't even realised that this "top 100" website existed.

It is surprising to me that someone would risk having such a huge amount in a single address.

Wow that is a awefull lot of coins!

Hopefully not a exchange moving online wallets content to a offshore bitcoin account.  Grin

Great to see, people are watching the movement of coins on the blockchain.

You shouldn't wonder about such things. Anyone wanting to cause confusion could do this.

Yes - I get now that the small amounts were being sent in *order to leave graffiti" - funnily enough I was actually one of the people who first requested blockchain.info to allow messages to be added to txs (in order to tag "tasks" for my own system - although I never ended up actually doing that).

So it's not only that address but 11 of the top 12 address and more below that.

So what are these coins, Bitstamp or something?

how people can store all bitcoin in a single adress  ...  it's insane in this world !
use multi-wallet to store multi-amount (like 15x 10k BTC).

Any chance that this is part of the stash confiscated by the US govt?
Unlikely I suppose given the message Wink

Doubtful that the entity that owns that private key also wrote that message.

Buy a TREZOR! Premier BTC hardware wallet. If you're reading this, you should probably buy one if you don't already have one. You'll thank me later.

"Blockchain Graffiti" LOL

Crazy to leave so much in a single wallet though.
