Active Bitcoin Addresses

Bitcoin network witnessed record activity in 2021 as a large number of addresses interacted on the daily basis. For BTC address activity, 2021 has become the strongest year to date.

“It is highly encouraging to see Bitcoin’s address activity break new ground in 2021, and not just on a single-day basis. With its mean daily addresses at 989,000, or just short of 1 million addresses/day, this was also the strongest year to date for Bitcoin’s address activity. To put this in context, although 2019 wasn’t a bad year for crypto by all accounts, it hasn’t seen a single day where BTC surpassed 1M DAA. In 2021, one million was almost the mean,” Santiment noted.
