As of 2017? What is the latest statistic?
Everyone wants to keep their online activities anonymous to them selves and knowing how many people will remain every bodies guess
Right now am estimating it to 5% of the world population including faucet users..

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.

I think that would be a very ambitious but not impossible figure. US dollar is an important tool in international commerce but I doubt if just 25% of the world population have a dollar. Well, things might be different with Bitcoin but knowing its current volatility it is becoming more like an investing medium rather than cash that can be everyday.

Actually bitcoin already have limited numbers, than definitely only few percentage of the people have bitcoins. Also it is a unique and different currency that only few people trust on it. But about the whole world know about bitcoin, than believe me, i can't guess perfectly, but perhaps only 3% to 4% people know and have the bitcoin in this world.

Its very difficult to have the number of actual bitcoin in the world,this will remain a mystery.

You have a good point, bitcoins limited supply means a very small group of people will own some bitcoins from the 21million bitcoins that will be mined
I guess you have to count yourself lucky owning some  Wink

My estimate would be a million because blockchain had a chart for total unique addresses used in the blockchain and the total for this day is about 680k addresses. There might be some people not moving their coins so the numbers could be much higher than expected and there are other bitcoin users who already died that still have bitcoins in their wallet. I asked google about the question and the answer was below a million but the time of post was during 2016.

Currently 5% of my friends use bitcoin. It is still a small number. Especially in the world today there are still many areas that have not covered internet network. In real terms only 1-2% of people in the world are currently using bitcoin from the total population.

I think statistics on this are hard to come by because bitcoin users are anonymous, but when viewed from bitcoin prices already in the moon I think bitcoin users will be more and more and will continue to grow again and again.

Statistics is unknown, simply because several bitcoin addresses can be owned by 1 person.  There is no one tracking the numbers of users that is having some amount of bitcoin, if there is some, there is no other way but to see the bitcoin address statistics but as I said, the statistic will be flawed because of the same reason that a single person can own multiple wallet addresses.

As if there will be a statistics that can be used to determine the number of people who own such amount pf bitcoin if ever there is I am not sure if it can considered to be accurate as there is no possible survey that can be done by some organization I guess . Even the number of transactions or wallets being used can't be used as a base to get an accurate statistics .

AFAIK there would be no significant importance for having this kind of statistics. Because we are having one simple indication for notifying about the growth of bitcoin which must be bitcoin price level. If you are interested to analyse how quickly bitcoin has spread then going with bitcoin prices itself more than enough.

Because number of bitcoin users/number of bitcoin addresses being used kind of statistics are not capable of not filtering out duplicate information.

Well, I think it might be around 5% maybe of the world population. It will increase, because even if people never searched or heard about it, it eventually gets headlines because of attacks like WannaCry.

we don't know how many people own some amount of bitcoin because we don't know how many wallet that people have in their sofware or hardware. we only can watch the address that is show in the blockchain without knowing who is behind that wallet and where the owners live. especially with todays that many new people join into bitcoin world, i am sure that they will have many bitcoin too in their wallet and we can not know how much of them that have the same amount of bitcoin.

It's really low compared to the world's population.There is no easy way to look at it because addresses do not represent people. People can have multiple addresses easily and have coins on all these addresses. If you look at the number of people on this forum, it's around 1 million right now. I would say that if you filter out all the alts you will get somewhere around 200 to 400k people. Add a few hundred k people that aren't using bitcointalk but also have bitcoin, i'd say that 500k is a good estimate.

It's less than .01% of the world's population if i'm correct with this, which means that bitcoin is barely mainstream but if you have bitcoin then you're a pioneer Wink

And most people that are aware of btc would rich businessmen who really has some large amount of money for investment. And people who lurks to the internet who sits hours and hours just in front of the internet. I would agree also that we can be pioneers but i think it maybe difficult inculcate btc to people who does not like works that requires you sitting all day because some traditional people would prefer physical world than just sitting over the internet.
