The data shows that small Bitcoin addresses have hit a new high, with over 1.5 million more of these holders emerging in the past month. Those within the 1-100 Bitcoin cadre have lost 118 addresses over the past month, and large wallet holders with over 100 BTC have seen 19 addresses removed within the same time span.
