Crypto whale empties Bitcoin wallet

One of the largest Bitcoin addresses on record, owned by an anonymous individual or entity, has just been emptied, with $415 million evaporating – briefly at least.

The transaction cost just $1.57 to complete and it also raised the question, what is one of the biggest Bitcoin stakeholders up to?

Apparently, the anonymous party has chosen to split their wealth across three addresses, dropping their supremacy on the Bitcoin market.

Albeit their collective wealth probably still exceeds that of the majority of stakeholders in the BTC space.

An interesting thing to note in the transactions is that one supposedly went to an address owned by BetVIP, the self-styled world's first licensed Bitcoin-only sportsbook. The whale decided to send 100 BTC their way.

A second wallet managed to grab 21,346 BTC, and a third wallet received three transactions worth less than one BTC each. All of this information has been made available by BitInfoCharts.

Based on the information provided, the wealthy Bitcoin wallet seems to not have any ties with financial institutions, companies or investors, outside of the link to BetVIP.

While Bitcoin's value has been slowly going up, many wallets have started emptying, especially those holding 10 BTC, or more.
