Ever since ViaBTC announced their cloud mining plans, the Bitcoin community has been on high alert. Albeit there is nothing wrong with what the pool offers, people have been carefully monitoring their wallet addresses. One particular transfer stands out, as 210 BTC was deposited into the wallet. A major client for their cloud mining business or self-funding to spike the numbers?
It is not uncommon for Bitcoin companies to deal with large deposits. Even cloud mining companies sometimes attract huge clients who spend a lot of money on a service. A 210 Bitcoin transaction, worth roughly US$154,000, was sent to ViaBTC’s cloud mining payment address. This took a lot of people by surprise, as it is unclear who is making such a large investment.
A Mystery Deposit For ViaBTC Raises A Lot of Questions

A rather strange turn of events, although this seems to indicate the money belongs to a semi-early Bitcoin adopter.
