$1B worth of Bitcoin are Currently on the Move From a Suspicious Wallet

A user named u/sick_silk created a post on Reddit about a suspicious wallet activity that happens to have $1 billion worth of Bitcoin.
Original post:

This is the third post of a series of articles dedicated to investigate $1B worth of bitcoins (111,114 BTC/BCH/… BXX) that were dormant since 2014 and started moving actively. The BTC coins were originally located at this address (15ihHoGs3onQBNnEH8afDFGvou9nD62Hm7).

The origin of the bitcoins is discussed here.

A deep-dive into the wallet activity was discussed here.

Today, I will focus on the transfer to major exchanges wallets that could indicate that the owner is selling his coins or exchanging it with alts or mixing it to cover his back.

I built a graph in order to deep dive into the transactions originated from the 111,114-BTC wallet and to follow it. This is the resulting graph were red indicates transactions <1 day, yellow <1 month, blue <1 year, green else.

I found that at least 15,593 BTC originated from the 111,114-BTC wallet have been moved to Bitfinex and Binance wallets. This represents 14% of the original funds and more than $110M.

Bitfinex wallet

​11,114 BTC have been transferred to Bitfinex wallet 1Kr6QSydW9bFQG1mXiPNNu6WpJGmUa9i1g and the majority of these coins have been transferred in the last 7 days (August 24th – September 2nd).

Here is the list of the transactions:

Binance wallet

4,421 BTC have been transferred to Binance wallet 1NDyJtNTjmwk5xPNhjgAMu4HDHigtobu1s and the majority of these coins have been transferred in the last 10 days (August 21st – September 2nd).

Here is the list of the transactions:

Bitmex wallet(s)

I tracked Bitmex as well but “only” found 210 BTC transferred in with the following 6 major transactions:

Also, I have found 350 BTC transferred from Bitmex wallets though, maybe after being “washed out”:

Update 1

If anyone finds info about the owner of this address: 3PtJRj5xKUKJ21TshP5u2G6dQMPNz2yUSc, I would be interested, thanks.​

Update 2

Here is a full resolution version of the graph requested by u/rush717:

Surprisingly BTC price is pumping since those funds were starting to be transferred to Bitfinex and Binance wallets (see Binance transactions’ list, August 11th)
