Our newsdesk discovered the first wave of 21 block rewards that were moved on March 11, the day before the infamous ‘Black Thursday.’ March 12, 2020, otherwise known as ‘Black Thursday’ is referred to in this way because global markets; stocks, oil, bonds, including safe-haven assets like gold and digital currency markets lost considerable value.

Three days later, another 2010 block reward that was created on November 11, 2010, was transferred on Wednesday morning.

The group of 21 block rewards from 2010 spent on October 11, also show that privacy was taken into consideration at that time.

Before the March 11, 21-block spend there were only two other historical block rewards spent, besides the famous February 2009 reward moved at block height 627,404 on May 20, 2020.

At this time, at block height 605,182, the miners spent a large group of 2010 block rewards that were all mined in the same exact time span.

The last time coinbase rewards from the month of December 2010 were spent, was a month prior to November’s set of consecutive 2019 spends.

The block reward spent on October 14, 2020, from November 11, 2010, alongside the consecutive lines of 2010 spends three days ago, the ones from mid-March, and the November 2019 spends could be considered the same miner.
