The cryptocurrency provider, Glassnode, counts the number of addresses holding more than 1000 BTCs. Statistics show that since the beginning of 2019, the number of addresses holding more than 1,000 bitcoins has surged. But Twitter user @RunJdub replied: "Technically, this can be an exchange or an individual, splitting 50000 BTC from one wallet to 50 wallets. So this doesn't necessarily mean people with 1000+ BTC. Will be more."
