Crypto Industry News:

The Bitcoin address, which collected 50 BTC from mining, has just shown the first sign of activity since February 2009 – just a month after the creation of Bitcoin.

According to data, the address 17XiVVooLcdCUCMf9s4t4jTExacxwFS5uh transferred the entire award for mining 50 BTC to two different wallets. Of this, 40 BTC remains inactive. The remaining 10 BTC were sent to the multiple address, as evidenced by its starting number.

Since then, the transaction chain has become more difficult to track because Bitcoins have been split into almost tens of parts within a complex chain.

The original wallet contained a transaction generating 50 Bitcoins, which were mined on February 9, 2009. In the community it is known that Satoshi’s “fortune” is spread over many different wallets.

Only three people knew about Bitcoin at the time: Satoshi, the dead Hal Finney and Martti Malmi.

Theories about the potential owner of these funds include the wife of Finney and Malmi, but Satoshi is also a likely candidate. The complex transaction chain suggests that the signatory is trying to hide the destination of the funds.

Technical Market Outlook:

The BTC/USD pair has been pushed lower after almost a week of hovering around the level of $10,000, but not breaking it. The bears has pushed the price towards the level of $8,759, which is just a tad above the trend line support. If this trend line is violated, then the losses might extend towards the level of $8,464 or below. Please notice, the momentum is weak and negative which supports the short term bearish outlook.

Weekly Pivot Points:

WR3 – $12,194

WR2 – $10,994

WR1 – $10,553

Weekly Pivot – $9,337

WS1 – $8,765

WS2 – $7,555

WS3 – 7,013

Trading Recommendations:

The larger time frame trend remains down and as long as the level of $10,791 is not violated, all rallies will be treated as a counter-trend corrective moves. This is why the short positions are now more preferred until the level of $10,791 is clearly violated.
