posted 5 months ago
A redditor, jwinterm, posted that a Bitcoin wallet associated with the MtGox hack has been holding almost 80,000 Bitcoins since 2011. The money has remained unmoved since then and there are records of more transactions (small ones) to that address that have been made up to and including 2020.

The Redditor states that a single transfer of 79,956 BTC was made to this address on March 1, 2011. After that, the website shows, many small portions of Bitcoin were sent to it. By now, the address holds a total of 79,957.20 BTC – that’s the equivalent of three quarters of a billion US dollars.
