    Wouldn’t it be foolish for someone to keep all their XRP in just one account? … I mean, if you have millions of XRP, then who cares about the 20 XRP reserve to open additional accounts in order to spread your risk thinner. Know what I mean? Ergo, this report from Wieste Wind is of no value…nor is the article. No offense to them, you or XRP, mind you. One doesn’t have to be trained as a scientist (even though I am) to spot this galaxy-sized hole in the data analysis.

      I believe this article points out the small percentage of wallets that hold large amounts of XRP! One might argue that if you own millions of XRP then there is not much of a spread in distributng a couple million in a few different accounts just to hide one total net worth in XRP. The logical reason to hold multiple accounts would be for transferring/selling certain amounts at different times which would be transparent on the Ledger. By the way,this is not a report from Wieste Wind…it is an updated website called created by Wieste Wind. you can find this information plus more for free. The Rich list shows me at the least how many wallets are holding a Globally Traded Asset compared to the global population. Also take a look at XRParcade by Leonidas for extensive data even a Scientist can decipher with minimal theoretical interpretation. Just kidding. Have a wonderful day sir.
