The most famous 10-Bitcoin operation, from Bitcoins played on Bloomberg's live broadcast to the transfer of Bitcoin from Earth to space...
1. Bitcoin address first
1A1zP1eP5QGefi2DMPTfTL5SLmv7DivfNa Bitcoin address is the recipient of the first bitcoin block mining award of 50 BTC.

2. US Marshalls Silk Road Auction
In October 2013, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) shut down the illegal drug site Silk Road and arrested William Ulbricht, Ross nicknamed “Dread Pirate Roberts”, the founder of the site.
The US federal law enforcement unit Marshals Service (USMS) has seized 144,000 BTC of Ulbricht during the investigation. At that time, the total value of these BTC was 122 million dollars. USMS also confiscated 29,000 BTC in various wallets linked to the Silk Road.
