Smaller Bitcoin (BTC) investors found a unique opportunity during the cryptocurrency downturn to own their beloved cryptocurrency. The number of “full workers” has increased by 40,000 since the June recession alone.
According to LookIntoBitcoin, the number of BTC “wholecoiners” has been steadily increasing since January 31, when the price of BTC was around $38,000.
However, the price of Bitcoin fell about 27% in May and another 40% in June, the same month that saw 25,389 new wallets holding at least one whole Bitcoin.
The BTC price at the current time of writing is $23,035, down 64% from the November 2021 ATH of $64,400, and the number of wholecoiners is currently at an all-time high of 891,346 since August 1, 2022.
