BIC’s Crypto Video News Show: How Many Bitcoin Millionaires are There in 2021?

In this episode of the BeInCrypto video news show, host Jessica Walker will answer the question, just how many bitcoin millionaires are there? She will also take a look at some of the most prominent bitcoin billionaires.

As the price of bitcoin (BTC) keeps getting higher, “hodlers” can’t help but wonder how much money they would have if only they had invested sooner. But among those who did, how many bitcoin millionaires do we have?

Diamond Hands Holders

Since Bitcoin kickstarted the cryptocurrency revolution in 2009, the crypto space has grown dramatically. This growing adoption is what saw the price of a BTC top $62,000 earlier this month. That price jump has led the seven-figure bitcoin club to reach six figures for the first time in the past week.

There are now over 100,000 people have at least $1 million or more stashed in BTC, according to the cryptocurrency data-tracking firm BitInfoCharts. That figure is up from just 25,000 BTC millionaires four months ago. A year ago, there were only 15,000 millionaire bitcoin accounts.

Whale Watching

There are also likely a handful of anonymous bitcoin billionaires. As of January 2021, 25 individual BTC addresses hold more than a billion dollars, according to BitInfoCharts. Five of which belong to crypto exchanges: Binance, Bitfinex, Bittrex, CoinCheck, and Huobi. Additionally, some “hodlers” may opt to keep their BTC holdings spread among several different addresses, as the Winklevoss Twins have been known to do.

While many BTC billionaires will likely remain anonymous, several are prominently contributing to the crypto movement’s development. Here are some of the top names.

Micree Zhan 

Despite his lack of name recognition, Micree Zhan is actually the wealthiest known BTC billionaire. His net worth in bitcoin was calculated at $3.2 billion as of January 2021. Zhan is the co-founder of Bitcoin mining hardware manufacturer Bitmain.

Chris Larsen
