Impossible to know exactly, Bitcoin is pseudo anonymous. The only thing we know is the number of BTC addresses created until this moment, but it doesn't give us any estimative as one person can have one or one hundred addresses...

I believe less than 0.05% of world population uses Bitcoin at this moment.

That seems to impossible because of bitcoin's anonymous feature, i guess you can calculate the amount of bitcoin in the users BTC address by going to blockchain.info
In 2017 the current total market cap of bitcoin os 30 bln thats the total amount of bitcoin owned by people but we dont exactly how many people owns it and who has the most bitcoin.

There is not such device that can calculate the total users having bitcoin, even system it will not gives you correct number since most of the users using multiple bitcoin wallet and you do not have any basis on that.
And i Agree that you can only view the total balance of 1 address in the block chain and if you do it 1 by 1 i think you can not finished that in more than  a year.

Just wait for another 5 years maybe 50% of the global population around the world already owns 1 bitcoin. With the price getting higher and higher each day, almost everyone is craving to earn bitcoins.

right now there are 16 billion btc circulating in the world wide web and if we convert that it is still anonymous and whoever is billionaire on btc, it is not know in the physicap world and it is not counted as a networth. It is not placed in any banks so your accounts wont be monetary counted for public hearings. So if there are people right now, they might just be in laylow but hides there money in the crypto world.

It's practically impossible to calculate. The number of world population is more than 7.5 Billion people. I believe that the number of bitcoin users is less than 1%.

It is not possible to identify how many bitcoin are there in people's hands because bitcoin are kept rotating in the market we don't how to calculate these things daily many new people are entering into bitcoin world so it very tough job to find.

I double checked whether I came to Marketplace or Bitcoin Discussion.

It is like assuming the total number of people who have BTC or Wallets. Impossible to know, may be a million.

Not at all possible to get an accurate count for the number of people holding or having small amount of bitcoin. I believe only countable number of people use bitcoin around the world but the wallets generated were high than the users. So an approximation can be made and total people holding bitcoin might be around 5%

We will not able to find the exact count of people hold the bitcoin but still only to see is richest bitcoin address. Other than that if you check the gambling site owner and campaign owners wallet address you could plenty of bitcoin with them. Least paying campaign secondstrade wallet fund also have decent amount with the campaign escrow.

As of 2017? What is the latest statistic?
Theres none since bitcoin is anonymous and its impossible to tally it knowing that bitcoin users possibly have multiple wallets have been used and knowing that anyone could accumulate lots of bitcoin which it cant be divided evenly into its users which means theres no possible answer regarding to this question.

People tried to estimate the number of bitcoiners around the world, the estimation ranged between 1M and 2M some time ago. If you search you'll find them. Number probably is outdated too.
There is a question, what could be considered as owning a Bitcoin? If someone has bitcoins sitting in an exchange or an y other place that gives no access to private keys, then will he be considered as bitcoin owner? What about blockchain.info, for example?

Just wait for another 5 years maybe 50% of the global population around the world already owns 1 bitcoin. With the price getting higher and higher each day, almost everyone is craving to earn bitcoins.

3.75 billions people each owning 1 Bitcoin, while the supply is limited to 21M? Looks like impossible.

i do not think that there is such mechanism through which we can find out the actual number of btcoin users, therefore i think no one can say that how many bitcoin users are present currently, who are using bitcoin. but one thing is clear that the btcon users may be too much and still their number is continuously increasing.

There is no way of telling. There are estimates out there and research done on it but in the end you'll never have an accurate number because people can change their bitcoin address, IP address or anything else that may have been used in the past, on a whim. Trying to guess is like trying to guess how many raindrops are in your pool vs. water you filled it up with. Lots leave all the time and lots are added all of the time. Who knows.

Bitcoin is not anonymous. If you thought it was you're very naive.

I think this year people have 1bitcoin in this wallet is less than 0.1 percent of the total global population . Because people started in online world and it cannot know know how they started and how to earn different ways. Those people dont have 1bitcoin becayse they dont have big capital to earn like that but those people have big capital their invest their money to bitcoin and invest ti trading, gambling and many more so they have many bitcoin. But some amount I think we have millions . Because they earn also even the amount is little only.

We cant tell the specific number of people who has bitcoin, we cant even tell how many users are there currently, there is no way to find out. but i guess its already thousands of people worldwide.

Yes, it is very hard to predict because each person is using multiple wallets so it is unpredictable. Single person will save their bitcoin in multiple wallets.

I don't see any people shouting out that thei exact holded balance or maybe those people who would tell for that are just lying and imagining to make themselves feel proud for this current uprise of bitcoins price. But the thing here is pretty unpredictable truly since we cannot see the exact balance of what is the normal average hodl by one person right now.
