2,973,761 unique Bitcoin addresses now hold at least 0.1 BTC. Having experienced large spikes in early 2016 and again in late 2017, the recent increase in this metric sets an optimistic tone for bitcoin adoption, especially by retail investors.

Historically, these types of metrics have increased when retail interest is on the rise. When combined with signs of high confidence from long-term HODLers, this suggests favourable conditions for bitcoin's value.
