According to the report, the milestone implies that the number of Ethereum addresses significantly increased by 12 million in the space of 9 months.
Intotheblock added that 31.33 million of the addresses gained from their positions, which could be attributed to the positive effect of decentralized finance (DeFi).
Intotheblock tweeted “Despite the recent ETH price drop, the network keeps growing. There are now 46 million addresses with a balance in ETH. Meaning that it has increased by a whopping 12 million in 9 months. From those addresses, 31.33 million are profiting from their positions. The DeFi effect?”

The recent significant price decline experienced by ETH has seemingly dissuaded many users from holding their ETH on crypto exchanges. Many users now prefer digital wallets, which obviously initiated Glassnode’s report.
