The BTC held since early 2018

Data shows that the sender had been storing the 40,000 BTC since early 2018 – the period right after Bitcoin price reached its ATH and then started rolling downhill.

On May 1, the sender went down from position #21 of the richest BTC wallets to #22. Presently, the address contains zero Bitcoin after sending the 40,000 BTC to the above-mentioned address.

As the list gets updated later on, the receiving wallet will hold position #22.
