The number of addresses containing from 0.01 to 0.1 bitcoins, from July 2016 has grown by more than 200%. The number of wallets with a balance of more than 0.1 but less than one coin increased by 142%.
Researchers have also recorded the increase in the number of large holders of the cryptocurrency or the so-called “whales”. In four years, more than 13% increase in the number of addresses containing more than 1000 bitcoins.
Note that the BTC ecosystem since its inception has expanded significantly in all major parameters and continues to show very good results.
