Possible Bitcoin creator wallet just moved 50 BTC

More than one wallet address is linked to Bitcoin’s creator, Satoshi Nakamoto. The most famous is the 1A1zP1eP5QGefi2DMPTfTL5SLmv7DivfNa, which receives frequent donations from strangers.

However, a portfolio that received a reward of 50 BTC for mining a block on February 9, 2009 has just moved its funds. The amount, obtained a month after mining the genesis block, was divided into two transactions this Wednesday (May 20).

Finally, angel trader and investor Whale Panda tried to calm things down:
