Bitcoin trader ActualAdviceBTC has passed away under unknown circumstances
Whale Alert’s Twitter account triggered an avalanche with his tweet that the Bitcoins had moved to one of the oldest wallets, where no movement had been recorded since 2009. This transaction can also be verified at blockchain.info
ℹ️ The coins in this transaction were mined in the first month of Bitcoin’s existence.

What does it mean? As AZCoin News mentioned at the beginning of this article, this is related to the death of one of the prominent figures in the crypto-community, performing under the name @ActualAdviceBTC. Some argue that the cause comes from the fall in the Bitcoin price, which is now below $ 9,500?
Could this be proof of the existence of the legendary founder of Bitcoin, whose identity is not yet known? Guesses about who it might be are multiplying like mushrooms in the crypto-community, but the final evidence has not yet come from anyone, not even Craig Wright, who has tried to prove that he is Satoshi Nakamoto. The final evidence would be that satoshi units would be transferred from one of those ‘original’ wallets, which had been dormant since 2009.
Close friend Romano, known by the Twitter handle @RNR_0, stated about Ben:
“You truly changed my life. Thank you for being a friend and guiding me through crypto when I was new. I wouldn’t be here without you.”
Diana Biggs, who advises on emerging technology at Oxford University, added:
I lost someone I love today but crypto lost a legend.

The last time the bitcoins, mined in early 2009, moved in 2017, and there were not many movements of these “old” coins over the years. And what do you, our readers, think of that? Let us know in the comments below the article.
