According to the latest tweet by the on-chain data company, the BTC balance of addresses that have been holding Bitcoin for more than one year has reached a new historic peak; now, these wallets hold 12.73 million Bitcoin.

The IntoTheBlock team stated that since May 7, the owners of these wallets have acquired an astounding 250,000 Bitcoins. This acquisition began on approximately May 7, when Luna Foundation Guard (LFG), the organization behind Terra’s LUNA coin and UST algorithmic stablecoin, began selling its Bitcoin stash or, rather, “lending to market makes.”

LFG dumped around $1.5 billion worth of Bitcoin on the market in an attempt to support the peg of its UST stablecoin.

A total of 250,000 Bitcoins are worth $7,955,425,000 at the current BTC/USD exchange rate of $31,812. As for the total BTC supply held by the aforementioned wallets, 12.73 million BTC, it is equal to $405,090,241,000,000.
