Note, the number of wallet addresses doesn't resemble the real number of millionaires. The actual number would be much lower because individuals can own multiple wallets, and some addresses belong to corporations or decentralized protocols with multiple owners. It's also difficult to calculate off-chain data, such as customers who hold balances on exchanges.


Bitcoin Millionaires

As of October 20, 2023, on-chain data reveals there are 74,179 Bitcoin addresses with a $1M balance or greater. Only 5,656 wallets hold a balance of $10M while 40,866,968 Bitcoin addresses hold at least $1. The current price of Bitcoin is $28,788 which means you would need to own 34.74 Bitcoin to achieve millionaire status.
