Lurid Headlines such as this pass the truth. Contrary to Bloomberg shown, does not account for 95 percent of the BTC Supply to only 2 Accounts. In truth, Bitcoin is spread much wider.

You will consult about the various addresses stored BTC, resulting in a highly distorted image. Finally, Bitcoin exchanges, camps, for example, huge quantities of digital Gold on a few addresses. To claim that these assets belong to individual actors, but it is simply wrong. Exchanges have millions of customers, their BTC assets bundled in the Cold Storage will be stored. You look at the Blockchain and then only superficially, it looks as if the entire digital gold treasure would be controlled by a single player. The Binance Cold Wallet (34xp4vRoCGJym3xR7yCVPFHoCNxv4Twseo) controls, for example, 143.528,45 BTC, worth a total of 8.3 billion dollars.

It clusters all the Bitcoin addresses by means of statistical techniques and blends them together so that they can be assigned to individual users according to Onchain-Anlysedienst Glassnode, a very different picture. In truth, the Supply is scattered in fact much broader than that of market observers, such as Bloomberg rumors. Therefore, whales are in control of “only” 31 percent of all Bitcoin in circulation amount. As Wal Glassnode defined entities holding more than 1,000 BTC. Since the data specialists, Exchanges and miners have not taken into account in their study, it is expected to fall below it, above all, institutional investors such as MicroStrategy, Tesla, and Square.

Hodler play a greater role than previously assumed

Although whales play in Bitcoin-Land, still an undeniably large role. The importance of Hodlern increase, of course.

Smaller instances, which each hold up to 50 BTC (Shrimp, Crab, and Octopus), control of almost 23 per cent of the offer. This shows that a considerable amount of Bitcoins is in the hands of retail investors,

it is stated in the study.

In addition, the number of small fish exceeds that of large whales significantly. That and the fact that the trend towards increased to a broader distribution steadily, shows the potential market power of Hodlern.

Because while the amount of the held Bitcoin in a Cluster of Crabs and Shrimps since 2017 to 130 percent increases, whales reduces your BTC Position in the same period of up to 7 percent.

The Whole is particularly bullish for Bitcoin, as retail investors in the Bitcoin market are known to put a Hodl mentality of the day. The more Shrimps, Crabs and Octopuses hold of Bitcoin, the better.

In a similar direction, further evidence on the part of JPMorgan’s, however. As we had already reported that, ate the whale, apparently, already saturated, while the Hunger of smaller sea creatures continues. According to the contents of an analysis of the banking house of 2021 Retail investors assimilated in the first quarter so far, more than 187,000 BTC. In contrast, only “from 173,000 BTC on the part of institutional investors”. The reason for the growing interest is likely to be, among other things, the Stimulus Checks referred to economic assistance in the United States.
