The price of bitcoin has dipped below the $60K zone, a number of people have been talking about the third-largest bitcoin address called “1P5ZED” which has accumulated thousands of bitcoin during the last few days. Nobody knows who the owner of the wallet is but it holds more than 111,359 bitcoin, as it’s been steadily accruing bitcoin since the wallet’s first transaction on February 5, 2019. While some assume the address is a mega bitcoin whale, onchain data indicates that the wallet could be tied to an exchange.
A Myriad of Tales Tied to the Third Largest Bitcoin Wallet Speculate the Address Is a Whale That ‘Bought the Dip’
Bitcoin’s fiat value has been volatile and it’s one of those times where everyone is looking for answers to why BTC has slid in value. For instance, on November 10, bitcoin (BTC) slid from a $69K all-time high (ATH) and five days later, it was coasting along in the mid-$65K to $66K per unit range. Since the crypto asset’s ATH, bitcoin is down 16% in value and slid under the $60K zone. Of course, the volatility sparked whale watchers and people talking about bitcoin whale transactions happening in real-time.

Bitcoin whales are individuals or organizations with large sums of BTC and the whale can also be of various sizes. Depending on who you ask, BTC whales can be individuals or organizations that own 1,000, 10,000, 50,000, and 100,000+ bitcoin. An entity that holds more than 100,000 BTC would be considered a “mega-whale,” and there are only three bitcoin addresses in existence with 100,000 BTC or more. The top five largest BTC wallets hold anywhere between 84K to 288K BTC, and three of those wallets are marked or tagged as exchanges.
