Nowadays, crypto wallets are an integral part of crypto ownership and trading: naturally, one must have a secure place to keep one’s valuable digital belongings.

Whereas not long ago, wallets were somewhat of a rare occurrence, they have since grown in numbers. Substantially.

The graph below shows the situation, past and present, between 2015 and today:

Graph. Number of Crypto Wallet Users Worldwide

After a timid start with ~3 to ~4.5 million users in 2015, the first quarter of 2016 started to approach 7 million users globally, followed by ~11 million users in the last quarter of that year.  

Last year’s first quarter saw a promising start with almost 13 million crypto wallet users, followed by almost twice as much, ~21.5 million, 9 months later, as the year came to a close.

2018 began with the first quarter’s figure reaching for ~24 million, gradually climbing further up to almost 30 million crypto wallet users the world over that we have today.
