The transaction, which is very big, amounting to more than 5 million USD, has come from this tx hash: 0x0f287477b0adddf4612fadd79170bba35d2c3f17e7e0405772eb3e88534eb2e3. The information was originally posted on Twitter by the writer Zoe Dolan.
Speculation on Social Media
Why some people were curious as to why Zoe was specifically looking at the genesis block wallet, some other were speculating that it was Vitalik Buterin that made this recent transaction. However, there was no answer, only to why Zoe was doing this.
She recently saw the huge amount of 93,750 ETH going through the genesis block to a Bitfinex wallet and was trying to understand this. Who is moving all this money around? Nobody knows.
