On average or the median, how many do you think it is?

Specify whether your guess is an average or median.

There is more or less 7 millions of bitcoins currently in circulation. There is approximately 50,000-70,000 bitcoin users (if you take the number from mtgox and consider that people not on mtgox are balanced by the fake accounts).

Which means, on the average, 100bitcoin per user.

You are welcome, tips are appreciated:

I'm way below the average, but I just gone in at the $15+ level right before the crash, and I'm also invested in other things.

If 100 is the average, that is definitely higher than I expected. My guess is that the median is around 90 BTC lower than that.  Lips sealed

If you think that having a median close to the average is a sign of an healthy distribution, just wait for a few more bubble bursts like we have seen :-)

Well, I keep an history of all my transactions and it is embarrassing to see that I've bough a bunch of them at 0,72€ and sold them at 0,94€, thinking it was a huge opportunity, making 10€ benefit in the mean time ;-)
