Dormant Wallets Stirring
An Ethereum Name Service domain, darkmarket.eth, reclaimed 39,712 ETH, equivalent to $119 million, on July 31. Despite ENS founder and developer Nick Johnson’s reminders to the owner to reclaim the assets in 2021, they had remained untouched.

Notable dormant wallet activations have also been recorded this past year. One wallet, inactive for eight years and holding pre-mined Ether, transferred assets worth $116 million to a Kraken exchange address on July 19. Another wallet, dormant until recently, made a substantial Bitcoin transfer, originally bought when Bitcoin’s value was approximately $4.92.

While Ether sees distinct activities, Bitcoin also has its fair share of whales. An unidentified entity has acquired 118,300 BTC on August 23, now valued over $3 billion. While the owner’s true identity remains to be known, speculations range from major financial institutions to centralized companies like Gemini or BlackRock.
