With Bitcoin price well over $20,000, chances are the cryptocurrency will be a topic during holiday dinner table discussions once again this year. Investors in “digital gold” in 2020 are especially merry right now, after a 500% rally from yearly lows.

Data taken from each Christmas Eve to the next shows that it isn’t just holiday cheer that is spreading, and that wallets holding 1 BTC or more have reached their highest level historically.

Christmas Cheer: Bitcoin Ho-Ho-Holders With 1 BTC Spreading, Data Shows

Much of the reason why the first-ever cryptocurrency confounds traditional financial analysts is due to a lack of understanding of the asset’s underlying network and the power of the “network effect.”

Add in the fact that demand far outweighs the ultra scarce supply, and the price of the asset is set to increase exponentially. Later, things come crashing down, the cycle starts all over, allowing new participants to enter and history repeats.

Data taken from each Christmas Eve to the next, according to glassnode, shows this network effect and spreading of adoption in full effect. Wallets containing a full BTC or more have now reached the highest level historically on Christmas Eve.
