On April 8, three Bitcoin wallets that had been inactive since 2009 became active. Some unknown users transferred 150 BTC in total in three equal transactions.

12 years ago, the crypto was worth almost nothing, it didn’t even have an official exchange rate, since there were no crypto exchanges. Now the value of 150 BTC is estimated at more than $6 million.

The transactions were recorded by the Whale Alert Twitter bot. Similar transfers of 50 BTC, inactive since November 2009, were also registered on April 7.

The movement of inactive Bitcoins does not necessarily indicate the assets are going to be sold. The transaction only means the digital coins have transferred from one address to a new one.
