Investigation of Diar company showed that the amount of Bitcoin addresses, where are from 1 000 to 10 000 coins, significantly increased during cryptocurrency market fall.
The report compares current bitcoin distribution data with data of August 2018, when BTC rate was at the point $8 000. Wherein, major attention analysts paid to the wallets of “corporate size”, i. e. those that store from 1 000 to 10 000 coins. At the current moment such wallets contain 26% of all existing bitcoins on the market – about $36 mlrd.
Investment resource informs that in August 2018 such “corporate” wallets stored less than 20% of issued BTC. That is, less than for a year this category increased by 7%. Bitcoins volume increased by 450 thousand for 9 months. What is more, analysts don`t take into account 96 wallets of Coinbase exchange, which also fall into “corporate” category.
It`s interesting that since the beginning of 2019 more than 100 000 (40%) of newly mined Bitcoins have been transferred exactly to wallets of “corporate” type. And if we calculate from the beginning of “cryptocurrency winter” – January 2018 – about the half of mined Bitcoins has settled on wallets from this category.
