Bitcoin: USD/BTC (BTC=X) Rich List experiencing rapid growth
The Bitcoin Rich List has experienced rapid growth in the past 12 months as more bitcoins are consolidated into larger wallets—or new money is entering the space.
The Rich List is a table that shows how many wallets contain certain amounts of Bitcoin. It’s based on blockchain data that’s publically available. However, each wallet doesn’t correspond to a single person. One person might own multiple wallets and one exchange might have multiple people’s funds in a single wallet. But, it appears that those wallets containing large amounts of Bitcoin are getting fatter by the day.
According to Coindesk, the number of addresses containing 1,000 or more BTC has increased by 30% since September 2018. Now, more than 2,000 addresses are holding over 1,000 Bitcoins. However, they do make up just 0.01 percent of all addresses.
But when it comes to accounts holding tens of thousands of BTC, there are far fewer. The number of accounts with 10,000 – 100,000 BTC totals 104, while there are only three accounts with 100,000-1,000,000 BTC.
This growth of the larger accounts could be credited to an increasing number of experienced investors purchasing Bitcoins. In late 2018, the price of Bitcoin halved, meaning they could get BTC at cheap prices.
Sukhi Jutla, a Bitcoin author and expert, told Decrypt the increasing number of Bitcoin millionaires can be attributed to an increasing number of people becoming aware of Bitcoin and holding wealth in this asset type.
“With crypto becoming more mainstream, there is an increasing number of individuals, wealth managers and family offices who are looking to diversify their holdings and Bitcoin is one of the most trusted assets around at this point in time,” she explained.
“In addition to this, the Bitcoin Rich List has increased because of the number of new exchanges that are being opened. These exchanges hold Bitcoin in multiple wallets and this is also driving the increase we have seen.”

Momentum is a general term used to describe the speed at which prices move over a given time period. Generally, changes in momentum tend to lead to changes in prices. This expert shows the current values of four popular momentum indicators.
One method of interpreting the Stochastic Oscillator is looking for overbought areas (above 80) and oversold areas (below 20). The Stochastic Oscillator is 66.8519. This is not an overbought or oversold reading. The last signal was a sell 7 period(s) ago.
Relative Strength Index (RSI)
The RSI shows overbought (above 70) and oversold (below 30) areas. The current value of the RSI is 59.53. This is not a topping or bottoming area. A buy or sell signal is generated when the RSI moves out of an overbought/oversold area. The last signal was a buy 30 period(s) ago.
Commodity Channel Index (CCI)
The CCI shows overbought (above 100) and oversold (below -100) areas. The current value of the CCI is 39. This is not a topping or bottoming area. The last signal was a sell 7 period(s) ago.
The Moving Average Convergence/Divergence indicator (MACD) gives signals when it crosses its 9 period signal line. The last signal was a buy 12 period(s) ago.
