Since 2020, the Bitcoin ecosystem has seen an increase of around 11 million addresses with a non-zero balance. This means that there are now almost 200,000 addresses with a balance of 1 Bitcoin or more. The current total for these types of accounts stands at 981,000.
Addresses with a non-zero balance are defined as the number of unique addresses holding a positive (non-zero) amount of coins. A balance with one or more Bitcoin is defined as the number of unique addresses holding at least one coin.
