According to crypto analysis firm LookOnChain, a dormant Bitcoin (BTC) miner wallet has woken up after 14 years. The miner earned 50 BTC from mining on Apr. 23, 2010, and held on to the coins till this day.

BTC’s price in April 2010 was less than $0.01. Therefore, the 50 BTC would have been worth around $0.5. Today, the 50 BTC are worth around $3.28 million. The miner made a profit of about 655,999,900% (655.9 million percent).

According to LookOnChain, the wallet deposited the Bitcoins (BTC) to Coinbase earlier today. The wallet holder may be looking to book profits, given that BTC is close to its highest levels ever.

Moreover, it is also possible that the wallet holder is expecting a further market correction, given the latest attack on Israel by Iran. The conflict has caused the stock market to take a hit, and investors may be anticipating a similar pattern in the crypto market.

Will Bitcoin (BTC) face another correction?
