Bitcoin near incredible milestone: Number of hodlers approaches “moon”

Bitcoin's historic milestone approaches as almost 1 million addresses hold 1 bitcoin or more, signifying a major shift towards decentralization and adoption.

Bitcoin is on the verge of achieving a significant milestone as it approaches one million addresses that hold one bitcoin or more. This is one person that owns at least $28,300 worth of digital assets at the time of the writing.

Almost 1 million active Bitcoin addresses

The growth in the number of addresses of “crabs” (addresses that hold between 1 BTC and 10 BTC) is exponentially growing. A group referred to as “shrimps” (addresses that hold less than 1 BTC), are currently accumulating Bitcoin at a remarkable rate as well.

With more “shrimps” becoming the “crabs,” it suggests that Bitcoin’s distribution is becoming more decentralized, which is a positive sign for the cryptocurrency’s long-term growth and stability. 

Overall, this achievement highlights the increasing mainstream acceptance of Bitcoin and its potential to become a viable alternative to traditional currencies.
