Whale alert says that according to their latest reports, the anonymous Bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto mined about 1,125,150 BTC which are now worth about $10.9 billion. The researchers in a Medium post the researches described how Satoshi continued mining with the same rig since 2010, so let’s read more about it in the latest Bitcoin news.
Whale Alert says that their findings were gathered with the help of Sergio Demian Lerner’s 2013 “extra nonce” technique which claims Satoshi had a stash of about 1 million BTC referring to the possible Satoshi mining as the Patoshi pattern. The researchers identified multiple patterns that are specific to the Patoshi set which helps to further isolate the Satoshi-mined blocks.

22,503 of the initial 54,316 blocks were mined by Satoshi under the new method according to Whale Alert. Satoshi maintained the constant mining scheme while the network started growing to protect it from 51% attacks as the researchers suggested. The reliability of assuming the patterns are specific to certain mining rigs that were called into scrutiny by BitMEX Research in 2018. They estimated Satoshi’s haul to reach 700,000 BTC.
As per the recent reports, The Whale Alert warned on Twitter than someone transferred 10,000 BTC to Binance which is worth around $ 80 million and it is now questionable if the money was used to drag the price down. All of the other cryptocurrencies are very suspicious as well. One positive note is the transaction cost which was minimal as its miner fee was just $1.73. So far, there has been no explanation from Binance in regards to the huge transaction.
The Ripple whale alert showed a transaction moved 50 million of XRP – going in contrast to the one billion XRP in and out of escrow each month, which is making the funds available to sell to third-parties. The recent transfer sent XRP from a well-known funding wallet that is owned by the payments startup to one anonymous wallet. All of this indicates that the Ripple whale alert may be the actual company (Ripple Labs) selling some of its holdings or funding an initiative through its development arm Xspring. The cost of this single transaction was less than a penny. The company (which owns more than half of all XRP in existence) has reduced its sales of digital asset in recent months. In the latest XRP Markets Report, the company reported selling around $1.75 million worth of XRP in the first quarter of this year.
