Foreign media: 4 reasons that affect the uneven distribution of Bitcoin wealth

According to Decrypt, statistics show that up to 2.8% of wallet addresses control 95% of bitcoin supply. However, things are not so simple, and the uneven distribution of Bitcoin wealth is also affected by other factors:
1. Nakamoto Satoshi (or his team) dug up 700,000 bitcoins, accounting for 3.9% of the current bitcoin supply;
2. There are also some lost keys or forgotten bitcoins. According to Chainalysis, as many as 3.8 million bitcoins (including Nakamoto) may disappear, accounting for 20% of current supply;
3.Trader Sasha Fleyshman pointed out that seven of the top ten bitcoin wallet addresses are attributed to encrypted exchanges, and these exchanges hold approximately 72.7 bitcoins, accounting for 4% of the bitcoin supply;
4. It's easy to generate Bitcoin addresses. Exchanges often create different addresses each time they send and receive currency, which can result in millions of empty addresses, or non-valid addresses.
