According to Glassnode, a cryptocurrency analytics data provider, a significant portion of the total Bitcoin (BTC) supply has not moved in over 10 years.

During this ten-year interval, 1.8 million bitcoins (of the current 18.5 million) were seized from inactive bitcoin addresses. According to Coin360, the total value at the time of publication is over $ 23 billion.

Most of these coins may belong to the mysterious Bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto, who disappeared from society in 2011. Nakamoto can own over a million of these intact assets that are supposedly lost forever.

Despite a large number of downturns, some previously unused bitcoins began to move in May. A wallet with coins from February 2009 suddenly sent 50 BTC to two different addresses without warning or explanation. Later, people in the blockchain community suggested three main scenarios: perhaps these currencies belonged to the family of the late crypto-scientist Hal Finney, one of the early developers of Marty Malmi, or perhaps Satoshi Nakamoto himself. Speculation is largely denied by stakeholders, with the exception of Nakamoto, who remains evasive.
