Ever since early Bitcoin (BTC) investors woke up millionaires when the ecosystem gained immense popularity along with the mainstreaming of the internet, investors around the world have been in a hurry to amass so many of the 21 million BTCs – one Satoshi at a time.
With BTC recently trading at $ 20,000 for the first time since 2020, small investors found a small window of opportunity to achieve the dream of owning at least 1 BTC. On June 20, Cointelegraph reported that the number of Bitcoin wallet addresses containing one BTC or more increased by 13,091 in just 7 days.
While the total number of addresses holding 1[ads1] BTC saw an immediate reduction in the coming days, the crypto community on Reddit continues to welcome new crypto investors who kept on becoming a wholecoiner.
Redditor arbalest_22, who shared the screenshot above, revealed that it took him around $ 35k in total to accumulate 1 BTC over several months since February 14, 2021. Redditor shows further support for the Bitcoin ecosystem and aims to continue acquiring Satoshi or bet forward until he accumulates over 2 BTC.
Arbalest_22 started buying BTC from the cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase, but later started using Strike due to lower fees. They shared a look at his future plans, and stated:
“I hope in the future that I can treat it more like rich people treat property and take out loans against it. So as it appreciates, just repay the old loan with a new one. Boom, tax-free income. “
After that, another Reddit user Evening-Main-5860 also wrote about being able to 1 BTC after largely following a dollar cost-averaging (DCA) strategy, where they regularly bought smaller amounts of BTC over a long period of time, saying:
“I managed to catch the falling knife and buy enough to get over the finish line. This was no easy feat. I’m just a normal guy with a normal life. “
Between June 15 and June 25, the total number of Bitcoin wallet addresses grew by more than 1 BTC by 873, according to Glassnode data.
