Bitcoin Wealth Distribution
Given Bitcoin's protective levels of anonymity, numbers on the distribution of bitcoin wealth by owners are limited, but according to approximate figures provided by the online bitcoin community, BTC ownership has made a fraction of those lucky folks very wealthy.
Recent figures provided by BitCoinTalk.org (citation below), an estimated 1,200,000 people own bitcoins that are valued at more than $1 USD (BTC0.001 or more). An additional 280,000 people own bitcoins that are valued at more than $1,000 USD (BTC1 or more), and 930 people are estimated to own bitcoins that are valued at more than $1 million USD (BTC1,000 or more). Just 1 person owns bitcoins that are valued at more than $1 billion USD (thought to be Satoshi, estimated at BTC 980,000).
Bitcoin is the future and replacement for money as we know it. It will replace traditional loans and the way we purchase everything. I will go as far as to say our service that offers the best payday loans will eventually be replaced with a Bitcoin solution.
Below you can see how Bitcoin wealth distribution compares to the wealth distribution of the U.S. dollar.
