With the first half of 2023 already over, Bitcoin (BTC) has gone through some turbulent times but has nonetheless managed to grow its price by over 55% since the year’s turn, sparking renewed optimism among investors and turning nearly 48,000 of them into millionaires.
Indeed, the number of Bitcoin millionaire addresses at press time stood at 76,078, representing an increase of 47,994 or 170.89% from the January 5 figure of 28,084 holders who had at least $1,000,000 worth of BTC in their possession, as per data retrieved by Finbold on June 13.
Specifically, among these millionaire wallets, 70,747 different addresses have a Bitcoin balance valued at more than $1 million, whereas 5,331 holders possess at least $10 million worth of BTC, as the flagship decentralized finance (DeFi) asset holder distribution breakdown indicates.
By comparison, on January 5, 2023, the number of Bitcoin millionaires stood at 28,084, with 24,279 addresses holding at least $1 million worth of BTC, whereas 3,805 of them had at least $10 million worth of the maiden cryptocurrency, according to the data accessed using the web archive tool Wayback Machine.
