Coin distributions

Today we present you a new feature of “Cardano Coin Distribution Statistics”!


Now, when you open the “Latest Cardano Addresses” page – you can see a new small section at the top called “Coin distribution”, like that:

This is a very simple summary. The column “Address balance” shows, how much coins there are on the top 20% of addresses, or top 10% of addresses, or top 5% of addresses (top means, from richest addresses down). And the column “Coin holders” shows how much addresses own top 20% of coins, or top 10% of coins, or top 5% of coins. And in the brackets you can understand how much coins or how much addresses it is in comparison among all the addresses there are (e.g. top 20% of addresses own 97.7% of all coins, etc.)

Detailed report

You can see that the “Coin distribution” sign itself is a blue link, so you can click on it – and it will get you to the dedicated “Coin distribution” page, which looks like this:

On this page you can see (almost) real-time detailed report on how coins are distributed among Cardano addresses. At the top – you can see when was the last time the report was updated (note that time is shown in your local zone). Also you can see short description on what each column means.

You should note that this report (and the previous summary) only include addresses with balance between 1 ADA (inclusive) and 1 billion ADA (exclusive), so dust addresses and top billionairs (including IOHK and Binance exchange) are not included.

Then you can see tables demonstrating “partitions” on 20%, 10%, 5%, and 1%. Tables are showing 4 meaningful columns, and you can see they are separated in pairs:

  1. First two columns demonstrate that if you split all addresses into 5 (or 10, or 20, or 100) almost equal parts – then this is how much addresses there are and how much total balance each group has. For example, on the picture you can see top 48,046 addresses (group #1 in 20% table) to own ~ 23,414,269,630 coins (97.7% of considered supply).
  2. Last two columns demonstrate that if you split all coins into 5 (or 10, or 20, or 100) almost equal parts – then this is how much coins there are and how much addresses own this amount. For example, on the picture you can see top 4,816,359,545 top be owned by only 30 addresses (0.012% of all considered addresses)

Expand rows

Just looking at a row with few numbers in it might be confusing and not enough to get the whole picture, but at the same time we want to save space on the page and not make it too overweight with info. That is why we added new feature – now you can click on any row that you find interesting and get expanded information about this particular partition:

When you expand a row it contains two main columns of information:

  1. How many coins a partition of addresses hold
  2. How many addresses hold a partition of coins

So if you expand the top row in the 5% partitions sections you can see a bunch of information:

  1. 12,344 addresses hold 20,306,310,049 coins
  2. Top 5% of addresses hold % of all coins
  3. You need a balance between 315,755.92 and 648,176,761.6 ADA to be in top 5% of rich-addresses
  4.  1,736,534,155 coins are owned by 3 addresses
  5. Top 5% of coins are owned by % of addresses
  6. You need a balance of at least 540,493,088.86 ADA to be in the holders of top 5% of coins

We hope this feature provides more interesting or useful information. For example, to find out which minimal balance will place an address into the top 1% of richest addresses – you can expand the top row in the 1% partitions section and fine out that it’s around 1.36 million coins (at the moment).

Weird stuff

The coin holders data in the 1% table might look weird for someone:

On the picture you can see two empty top rows. This is a valid situation and this just means that we can’t properly display how much addresses own top 1% of coins, or how much addresses own second 1% of coins, because it’s the same one address, which is displayed on the third position. This address simultaneously owns almost top 3% of coins, so that’s it is displayed like that.

We are working on how to display this information better, but for now you can think of that like of any empty position to be “owned” (included) by the next non-empty group.


We hope you gonna like our Cardano distribution report and find it useful 🙂

We are actively working to make it more responsive, understandable, and informative. And we will be glad to any constructive feedback!
