The Bitcoin rose 1.3% this morning and traded at a high of $ 6,075. According to estimates, the value of the mysterious coin maker, Satoshi Nakamoto, reached $ 5.9 billion.
After yesterday’s largest virtual currency passed the $ 6,000 mark, it has again surpassed today and is currently trading at a rate of $ 6,075.
One of the people who apparently won the largest amount due to the continued rise in Bitcoin prices lately is the man who created the currency and who designed the technology that underpins it, known as under the name Satoshi Nakamoto (there are rumors about his identity but he is not sure whether it is him).
According to estimates, Nakamoto holds 980,000 Bitcoin coins, which he bought in the early days of the coin, and which remained unchanged for several years. If so, it is worth $ 5.9 billion today.

It is located just below Wal-Mart heiress Ann Walton Cronake and Samsung Empire heir Jay Lee.
