Hey everyone!  I'm new here but been following bitcoins for a while, it's very interesting.  I've setup this blog where I'm going to publish interesting and useful stats about bitcoins, starting with a top 100 rich list.  I'm looking for suggestions about what other stats to publish, to let me know your suggestions either PM me here, reply on this thread or leave comments in the blog.  Thanks!

One of the great things about Bitcoin, is that there is no way two reliablely produce a top 100 richest list.

EDIT:  the top 100 richest list you have on your site could all be owned by the same person, or could all be owned by persons who are very far from the top 100.

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

- Carroll Quigley, CFR member, mentor to Bill Clinton, from 'Tragedy And Hope'

Even though it doesn't mean much I still like it.

Not only could 1 person own many of those addresses. The coins in 1 addresses could be part of mtgox or mybitcoin balances and owned by many people.

That's interesting, I was just wondering about that the other day, what is the highest balance for a Bitcoin address? 90,000 bitcoins, that's amazing.

But this only shows the total amount of Bitcoins ever sent to a particular address?

It doesn't seem to be accurate, because I have a specific amount of bitcoins on one of my addresses and it is not on the list (and it should be).

Yes all very true, I should add some notes or links somewhere to make it clearer for those who don't know all the bitcoins ins-and-outs.  I'm wondering as well how this list will change in the next few days, if anyone seeing their address listed will feel the need to split their balances out into smaller amounts and accross several addresses.

Hmmm... how long have you had your balance?  This list was based on a snapshot of data that is approaching being 1 day old, so if your balance is recent it will have been missed.  Also at the time I take the snapshot I ignore the most recent 120 transactions.   Does your balance show correctly on blockexplorer.com?  If you don't mind letting me know your address via PM I'll take a look through my code and see why it got missed.

Oh, sorry. My balance changed today a few times so this wouldn't be included yet. It's okay - my address is there with an older balance. Sorry for that.

ArtForz must have way more than 90,000 by now.

Sure, but ArtForz also has way more than one bitcoin address.

Here's a statistic I'd be interested in (I'm not sure why). What is the earliest block whose generated coins have been spent?

No worries.  It turns out I did have a bug anyway, there were some transaction types causing me to reset account balances to zero.  The blog post has been updated with the correction.

Thank you for satisfying my curiosity. I think it's almost certain that such an early block would have been generated by Satoshi. Of course, "spent" is quite a strong term. The coins might just have been sent to a different wallet.

This was actually a test payment Satoshi sent to me during debugging. I see in my email logs I offered to send it back but it seems I didn't.  Huh  It was an IP-address based payment.

Do you still have that coin? It's probably already worth 300+ BTC in collector value, and this will increase.

No, it seems I spent it in November, too bad. Of course the client doesn't let us pick which coins to pay with.  I didn't know it was the first transaction until today.

The latest rich list is up now http://bitcoinreport.blogspot.com/2011/01/latest-bitcoin-top-100-rich-list.html and there's a new high balance.

I'm working on generating some graphs with some other stats that Gavin Andresen was asking for, hopefully get those posted to the blog today.
