A breakdown of Bitcoin’s wealth distribution reveals that over 15 million addresses hold a balance of $100, making it the largest group of Bitcoin holders. Another 6.5 million addresses have a balance of around $1,000 worth of Bitcoin. 2.2 million wallets hold around $10,000, and the number of addresses with Bitcoin worth $100,000 currently stands at 480,956.
