Where Do You Stand In The “Unofficial Ranks” For Bitcoin Holdings?

BTC Rankings

Alright, after an earlier post this week where I went through how much Hive and Leo power you currently need to get to the various ranks such as minnow, dolphin, orca and whale. Using the same calculations, I applied this to Bitcoin for a bit of fun.

Having had a discussion in the comments section with a few of you legends, the ranks and amounts I calculated for BTC are probably not the most accurate! Given that there’ll only be 21 million coins ever minted by the time the year 2140 comes, owning 2.9 BTC as I had calculated is probably going to be extremely improbable, especially when it’s projected there’ll be 10.9 billion people on Earth by 2100!

With these numbers, if BTC was completely distributed evenly among 10.9 billion people in 2140, that would mean everyone would have 0.00192660 BTC, or 192,660 sats seeing as whole numbers are a bit easier to digest than small fractions of a number. But as we can probably sense, that evenly distributed BTC likely won’t happen as we saw institutions buy up BTC by the thousands in the latter half of 2020, with this trend likely to continue in to 2021.

So, with that in mind, I thought I’d invent an unofficial ranking list depending on how much Bitcoin you hold for a bit of fun! I’ll use some terms found on the evolutionary chart from this video along with some more common terms we see with a bit of “artistic licence” thrown in to the mix! Other sources are here and here and I feel like I suddenly know a little bit more about the marine world in the process LOL!

Despite there being 18,584,000 BTC at the moment, I’ll be using the final supply of 21 million as we know that will be everything then and maybe this will help motivate you towards your Bitcoin goals!
