On February 15, BTC reached and overcame the $10,000 mark, and some members of the cryptocurrency community believe that this increase was probably caused by an anonymous user, who purchased a large amount of coins right before this day.
Nobody knows who that trader is, but he bought bitcoin worth almost $400 million. Starting from February 9 this trader made a couple of purchases and increased the balance of the address 3Cbq7aT1tY8kMxWLbitaG7yT6bPbKChq64 from 55,000 to 96,650 BTC. Now this address is the third richest BTC-address in the world.
A founding partner of Tetras Capital Alex Sunnarborg told Market Watch:
"Not sure who that big buyer was but many have bought this dip and have added since the rebound and additional regulatory clarity in the U.S. and Asia."
Users of social networks began stormy discussions about who this trader might be. This person has also became a bitcoin millionaire, because at the time of writing the article the sum of 96,650 BTC equals more than $1,05 billion.
