Binance buys the dip adding over 43K Bitcoin to wallet

Bitcoin billionaires continue to accumulate during the dip. As Bitcoin (BTC) filled the $42 thousand December price wick this morning, Bitcoin whales were busy stacking sats.One address belonging to Binance added 43,000 BTC on Tuesday at an average price of $46,553.68, bringing the wallet’s total value to $5.5 billion. Elsewhere, the third-largest Bitcoin address continued its spending spree, adding another 551 BTC since Cointelegraph last reported it bought the dip, just two days ago. The wallet continues to aggressively accumulate in the $40 thousand range, now owning a total of 121,396 BTC or roughly $5 billion. There was some consternation on social media platforms about the wallet owner behind the $43,000 BTC buy, but Binance confirmed ownership of the address in a tweet sent out in 2019. For $BTCB, the $BTC reserve address is: 3LYJfcfHPXYJreMsASk2jkn69LWEYKzexbWe have just reserved 9001 BTC and minted 9001 BTCB. https://t.co/344lxlqsMaA trading pair on #Binance .com for BTCB/BTC will follow in a day or so, and we will issue a proposal on @Binance_DEX— Binance (@binance) June 17, 2019Related: Bitcoin Twitter flips bearish, community respondsThe intended use of wallet address “3LYJfcfHPXYJreMsASk2jkn69LWEYKzexb” was for the company to issue a number of crypto-pegged tokens on Binance Chain, starting with BTCB, a BEP2 token pegged to BTC. However, the wallet appears to have evolved into a cold storage wallet for the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange. In a tweet by advanced blockchain tracker @whale_alert in April last year, the wallet was again labeled as the Binance BTC reserve wallet address. Although the wallet has been used to mint 13,001 BTC onto the Binance Smart Chain, the owner has never sold a single Satoshi. Since June 17, 2019, it has accumulated a whopping 116,601.13647202 BTC. At the time of writing, the wallet is valued at roughly $4,982,770,577 or just shy of $5 billion. Talk about diamond hands.

Many possibilities exist according to them, from Satoshi Nakamoto deciding to return to a patient investor who is going to sell their BTC now to someone just recalling their seed phrase for their Bitcoin wallet.Someone’s maybe figured out a exploit from an old wallet perhaps making not so random seed phrases or something.
