The BitcoinRichList website shows that the current richest Bitcoin owner is a person or entity known as “Satoshi Nakamoto.” This account has a balance of over 1.
1 million BTC, which is worth over $10 billion at current prices.
It is believed that Satoshi Nakamoto is the pseudonym used by the creator (or creators) of Bitcoin. If this is the case, then the individual (or group) behind this account is likely to be the wealthiest person (or group) in the world when it comes to Bitcoin holdings.
However, it should be noted that Satoshi Nakamoto’s wealth is largely theoretical at this point. The vast majority of his/her/their BTC holdings are stored in what is known as a “cold wallet,” which means that they are not accessible and cannot be spent.
If Satoshi Nakamoto ever decides to access and spend his/her/their BTC holdings, it could have a significant impact on the cryptocurrency market. However, for now, it seems that the account holder is content to simply hold onto their wealth.
