Single Bitcoin block moves $9B (~5% of supply) setting new on-chain hourly ATH

posted 7 months ago
At block height 606,641, the transactions contained within the 10-minute window totaled 903,592.118 Bitcoin. This amount is comparable to nearly 5% of the entire Bitcoin supply, and is comparable to Satoshi’s stash. Based on estimations, the blocks mined by Satoshi Nakamoto contain between 900,000 BTC and 1 million BTC.

The block, mined by Antpool, only brought 0.25 BTC in fees, showing the low cost at which the vast sum could have been sent.
