2023 Growth of the Global Crypto Market +34%

According to's recent Crypto Market Sizeing Report 2023, global cryptocurrency ownership increased by 34% in 2023.

The number of cryptocurrency owners increased significantly from 432 million at the beginning of the year to 580 million by December.

Global Crypto Owners

Some key takeaways from the report are:

  • Total Global cryptocurrency owners increased by 34% in 2023
    • Bitcoin (BTC) owners increased by 34% (2023)
    • Ethereum (ETH) owners grew by 39% (2023)

The report notes that the main reason for the increase in BTC adoption due to the market interest in Bitcoin exchange-traded funds (ETFs) and the launch of the Bitcoin Ordinals protocol.

Bitcoin Ordinals protocol makes it possible to create both non-fungible (NFTs) and fungible tokens directly on the Bitcoin network. Additionally, the growing involvement of institutional investors also played a crucial role in bolstering BTC adoption rates.

What is a Bitcoin Ordinals Protocol? | Blockchain Definitions
The Bitcoin Ordinals Protocol enables each satoshi to carry unique information, such as text, images, audio, or other forms of digital content, effectively creating digital collectibles or artifacts on the Bitcoin blockchain.

Expect to See this Trend Continue into 2024

We expect to continue to see an increase in the global cryptocurrency owners through 2024 (is another 34% growth possible?) combined with the increased scarcity of Bitcoin (after the Bitcoin Halving event) and the influx of institutional money into the cryptocurrency market, we are confident 2024, into 2025 will be one of the greatest bull markets the cryptocurrency market has seen.
