I would just like to know what everyone on bitcointalk thinks about this. Thanks for responding

Profit can come from mining, investing, trading, etc. As long as someones net worth has increased as a result of bitcoin, the bitcoins they own are counted.

EXAMPLE:

person 1 owns 1000 bitcoins purchased at $20 each

person 2 owns 500 bitcoins purchased at $1000 each

person 3 owns 500 bitcoins purchased at $750 each

Statistic A: 1/3 of the people in this scenario have profited

Statistic B: 1/2 of the bitcoins are held by the people who have profited

I am looking at Statistic B. I don't know if it is a useful statistic, but it may be interesting to think about.
