Now that we have Halloween in the rear view mirror, it’s time to look ahead. Yes, I’m talking about Christmas. It means different things to different people, but most people can probably agree that it’s a pretty cheerful holiday.

It’s such a ridiculous number that calling it ‘astronomical’ is an insult to its enormity. So how big is it, exactly? Visualizing the number of Bitcoin addresses that exist is not an easy task, but just for fun, we’re going to try and help you do it.
