What I mean to say is that I sent btc to silk road and then I tracked the funds. They immediately went to that address. That is Silk Road's main storage. Nearly two million USD is tied up in the Silk Road Marketplace.

This account will now be thrown away.

It's mostly imaginary though, since it would be impossible to liquidate a sum that large without crashing the economy.  It's great they possess it, but what can they do with it?  Not much, at least not immediately.

If you're searching these lines for a point, you've probably missed it.  There was never anything there in the first place.

there was one guy a year ago with a balance of 370K bitcoins, accumulated over a long time.
He was buying 10K Bitcoins for dozens of USD at a time.
There was even an auction for 10K bitcoins for 50USD through paypal that did not find a buyer.
There is the history buried in the forum somewhere. The plan 2 years ago or something was to accumulate bitcoins in partnership with a Bank for some future business.
Over the months or year, the fad died out and the supposed bank dropped out without regards for and not paying any attention to the price of Bitcoins and the chap in question got to keep the bitcoins for a rather low fee of 30K USD or something in that range, cancelling the contract in someway.

To have it grown by 30K bitcoins is very possible. All this to say, there are some with very large balances. Maybe 80% of the wealth in 20% of the people as Pareto would say.

The 10K BTC thread was all about pizza, I was here from very early and I dont recall any 10K for $50 unless that happened in early 2010 ?

it's pirates! 



(yes this is 100% BS FUD)

It's one of the most annoying things about this "community".  I'm not sure why people seek to undermine trust by decloaking addresses/people with large balances.  It actually makes it worse than fiat, as you can't easily look up someone's bank balances.  It seems a perverse game among people with little respect for privacy in an open ledger system, which makes it necessary for people with "nothing to hide" to go to lengths to obfuscate their holdings.

Not everyone is "sophisticated" enough to split their holdings into multiple wallets/addresses.  This sort of activity creates a disincentive to invest heavily in BTC and to pull BTC out into cash more frequently.

I understand your sentiment, but if one's identity can be "uncloaked" by simple investigation, then it's not really cloaked in the first place. Not everyone needs/wants full complete privacy. Those who do, can take steps to attain it. And certainly, anyone with 400,000 BTC is experienced enough to know these things. If they wished those funds to be super secret, then they would be. It does not take much sophistication to split holdings, or even to launder them completely.

Doing a bit of web research using publicly available information does not breech anyone's reasonable expectation of privacy.

Let me get this straight. Somebody has amassed 4.5% of the total bitcoins in circulation. Plus, every single transaction I viewed (over 100) has a final balance of 0. If this entity is legit, more power to them. But if not...

I'm more than curious as to what product or service they are providing to amass such a large sum of coins.

bitcoinica or gox is all that really comes to mind. that or some unknown billionaire/hedge fund.

Somebody tell me I'm crazy, but the transactions I've seen are only seconds apart with each address used only once. I can't explain it, but by clicking any transaction and following it/them for a while, I come back to Mr. MoneyBags. I've found several accounts that spent the coins and the smaller amount gets added to that 400K account--magically. Somebody smarter than I would be able to explain exactly what is going on with this account. I've been on it for a couple hours now. This is nuts!
