A Bitcoin wallet holding Bitcoin (BTC) worth millions of dollars has been discovered and brought back to life. For one purpose or the other, the wallet was not involved in any kind of transactions for eight years regardless of the fact that it contains money that is regarded to be life-changing. Ignoring the fact that Satoshi Nakamoto, the enigmatic Bitcoin developer, had vanished in 2013, the wallet had not been utilised 2013.

In a comments section on Twitter, a user provided many possible explanations for the wallet’s activation. Thus according to the crypto community, a variety of options exist, ranging from Satoshi Nakamoto wanting to return to the world to a prudent investor who is planning to sell their BTC right away to someone simply recalls their seed word for their Bitcoin wallet.

On Sepember 19, the operator of an inactive Bitcoin wallet drained their account and moved all 616 BTC to various other wallets and exchanges worldwide.
