According to Glassnode, the leading on-chain analysis service, today, July 9, 2022, over 83,662,470 wallets on the Ethereum (ETH) blockchain have non-zero balances.
Typically, this network surges over time hand in hand with DeFi and dApps adoption. Not only retail users’ wallets, but also automatically created addresses used in DeFis, are registered on this metric.
This indicator ceased to surge only once in Ethereum’s history: the net number of non-zero addresses reduced after the May 2021 highs of the Ether (ETH) price.
