With the rise in the Bitcoin rate, every day on average about 1,500 new “millionaire wallets” appear, in which $1 million or more of cryptocurrency is stored. However, this figure is still lower than during the 2021 bull market, Bloomberg writes, citing data from the Kaiko analytical platform.

In 2021, the crypto market has been swept by a wave of retail investors eager to profit from the wave of hype. However, in 2023, large investors behaved more cautiously and sold their assets as Bitcoin reached new highs, writes Kaiko.

The slower pace may also be due to the fact that the influx of new capital has not yet accumulated force, and investors keep their assets with trustees, and not in personal wallets.
