According to a report, the US government is considered one of the largest Bitcoin whales, with significant holdings of the cryptocurrency. The government stores seized Bitcoins in hardware wallets controlled by various agencies such as the Justice Department and the Internal Revenue Service. The report suggests that the government’s Bitcoin holdings may be larger than publicly disclosed and raises questions about its strategy and attitude towards Bitcoin. The recent surge in Bitcoin’s value is attributed to a legal development concerning Grayscale’s ambitions for a Bitcoin ETF. It also discusses other topics such as the growth of Bitcoin’s Lightning Network and the launch of a Bitcoin hardware storage device.
