Addresses containing 0.1 BTC exceed their record
The number of purses with 0.1 or more BTCs has risen steadily since the 2017 upswing peaked, and since April 2019 new records have been systematically set above 2.75 million.
From August 2017 to January 2018, Bitcoin purses containing at least 0.1 BTC jumped 45% from 1.8 million to over 2.6 million. By March 2015, the value of approximately 300,000 purses had fallen below 0.1 BTC.
Since February there has been a notable increase in Bitcoin System coin meches that store a minimum of 0.1 coins, as enthusiasm for the reduction of the Bitcoin block reward grew.

The number of Ether addresses (ETH) containing 0.1 or more ETH has also been setting records in recent days; currently 2,984,080 Ether purses store at least 0.1 coins.
Unlike Bitcoin, the number of addresses representing 0.1 coins could not recover its previous record until April this year, having ranged from 2.4 to 2.7 million since March 2018.
The latest large upward trend prompted a huge increase in the number of ETH investors holding more than 0.1 currencies, jumping approximately 400% from 500,000 in August 2017 to 2.4 million in February 2018.
