Crypto Startup Blockchain Hits 25 Million Wallets

The significance of the milestone is tempered by the fact that the 25 million figure exceeds the number of bitcoin addresses that have a positive balance, according to data from BitcoinPrivacy, a website that supports bitcoin address privacy and analyzes bitcoin addresses in the interest of supporting privacy.
The website claims there are currently 22,057,779 bitcoin addresses with a positive balance and 20,812,887 unique wallets with a positive balance. This would indicate that many of Blockchain’s 25 million wallets are empty or that a large number of users hold ether but not bitcoin.
