“CryptoQuant said that 450 addresses sent Bitcoin to this new address. ” “These addresses are also shown on BitMEX’s Proof-of-Reserves report and start with the bc1qmex prefix. ”
BitMEX was moving its bitcoin to new addresses with the format bc1qmex from the old 3BMEX format. Some Bitcoin addresses start with “bc1q” and they can do a type of bitcoin transaction called SegWit. These addresses make transactions faster and cheaper.
As of Thursday, the wallet had the 74th most bitcoin, according to Bitinfocharts.
