Have you ever wondered who holds the most bitcoin in a single wallet?
A bitcoin wallet is explained below by masterthecrypto.com:
“First off, digital wallets are quite different as compared to your physical wallet. Instead of storing money, digital wallets store private and public keys. Private keys are like your PIN number to access your bank account, while public keys are similar to your bank account number. When you send Bitcoin, you’re sending VALUE in the form of a transaction, transferring the ownership of your coin to the recipient. In order for the recipient to spend the newly-transferred Bitcoin, his private keys must match the public address that you sent the Bitcoins to.”
You may be surprised with the findings. I dare say these people/companies have more individual Bitcoins than most have dollars within their bank accounts.
Here’s the top 10 below.
There you have it. Bitfinex has over 1% of the total supply of Bitcoin alone (totalling over $1.2 Billion USD) and Bittrex holds a very respectable 140,000+ Bitcoin in their wallet .
Wouldn’t that be nice to wake up to in your wallet?
