In some tweets you can find image the same newspaper article whose headline was used in the genesis block:

Devotees in particular send small amounts to a wallet believed to be Satoshi Nakamoto’s. This is where the first 50 Bitcoins ever created were sent on January 3, 2009. That 50 BTC, like many of Nakamoto’s, never moved. Now this wallet contains 68.56 BTC (more than $1.1 million) and the amount on it continues to grow every day.
