The cryptanalyst PlanB says that there are currently 800 000 bitcoin addresses with a balance not less than 1 BTC
These figures do not correspond to the number of owners, which, of course, less. The data include the addresses of kryptomere that combine assets into a single cold storage wallet. Also real Hodler have, as a rule, more than one address.
PlanB contends that actually only about 400 000 people have access to at least one BTC. At the same time, the founder of the platform TruStory Preeti of Caseready sure that only 2% of bitcoin addresses control 80% of the total emission of bitcoins.
Distribution statistics from the VTS BitInfoCharts claims that the number of addresses to store at least 1 dollar in BTC is 20 070 750, about of 95.45% of the total.
While the exchange accounted for ten of the most significant bitcoin wallets, 4% of the total supply of VTS in the amount of about 727 000 BTC.
The vast majority of coins are stored on a relatively small number of very wealthy addresses.
As a result, while bitcoins are becoming more and more popular, most of the coins still held by a relatively small number of people.
