A take on Bitcoin’s Gini coefficient

  • A transaction with a single output (aggregation) puts those coins very likely under the control of a single owner. This assumption will hold less often with growth of the Lightning Network.
  • A transaction with two outputs is very likely a payment. Whoever did that was apparently in control of the total input value. Mixing transactions that obfuscate ownership have very likely more than two outputs.
