Diamond hand holder

Since Bitcoin started the cryptocurrency revolution in 2009, the crypto space has grown dramatically. Because of this growing adoption, the price of a BTC was over $ 62,000 earlier this month. This jump in price has resulted in the seven-digit Bitcoin club reaching six-digit amounts for the first time last week.

According to cryptocurrency data tracking firm BitInfoCharts, over 100,000 people have now stored at least $ 1 million or more in BTC. That number has risen from just 25,000 BTC millionaires four months ago. A year ago there were only 15,000 millionaire bitcoin accounts.

Whale watching

There are likely a handful of anonymous Bitcoin billionaires out there too. As of January 2021, 25 individual BTC addresses will hold more than $ 1 billion, according to BitInfoCharts. Five of these belong to crypto exchanges: Binance, Bitfinex, Bittrex, CoinCheck, and Huobi. Additionally, some “hodlers” may choose to split their BTC holdings across several different addresses, as the Winklevoss twins are known to do.

While many BTC billionaires are likely to remain anonymous, some have been instrumental in developing the crypto movement. Here are some of the top names.
