The first major purchase of BTC in the new year on January 3 was made by a bitcoin whale. Perhaps in honor of the birthday genesis block, he acquired a large batch of BTC.

According to the service for tracking largecrypto transactions Whale Alert, the third largest Bitcoin address added 456 coins to its balance. The average purchase price was $ 46,363, with a total transaction amount of over $ 21.1 million.

The address now stores 120,845.57 BTC, which is valued at $ 5.7 billion. The billionaire's identity remains a mystery.

By comparison, the largest institutional holder of BTC, MicroStrategy, owns 124391 bitcoin. Elon Musk managed to purchase 48,000 BTC over the past year.
