I'm at a solid 2106
You have just over one ten-thousandth of all the BTC that will ever be issued!

It would be interesting to see a rank order list...my ~500 BTC puts me in the top 20,000 (for the moment), but I seriously doubt there are 20,000 people with 500 BTC.

I'd make a very vague guess and say those with more than 3000-4000 Bitcoins would number in the low hundreds, with a select dozen or more people having 8,000 or more. I say this because I lurked the forums here from mid 2010 and the fact was back then getting hold of Bitcoins was actually quite hard and extremely risky unless you mined them, and the really early miners didn't really have THAT much time to accrue stupidly high amounts (nor did they know then what we do now), and the fact was it was safer to drop money on mining equipment and mine them because if Btcoin fell through you'd at least have the value of your equipment to cover your arse. Especially considering the mania to get coins only really picked up during the July 2011 bubble. Anyone that dropped large amounts of money on Bitcoin in 2009-10 were frankly nuts back then and I doubt hardly any did since there was a stupid amount of posts/negative media attention declaring Bitcoin a scam and the pessimism was so thick, even on this forum, you could cut it with a cleaver. With the exception of knightmb and his mystically high 300k (whatever happened to him i wonder, ah looks like he's cleared up that myth https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=6825.msg973679#msg973679 , but secretly I hope he's got at least 20-30k idling away somewhere ;P ) most of the rest of the coins are fairly well distributed, I doubt even Satoshi has more than 40-50 thousand coins (and good for him if he does).

Interesting analysis.  I like the idea that people are more or less logical and tend to put their money in what seems relatively safe (when given two options). I would think there are some über BTC rich, but I wouldn't brag about it if in we're them either!
