How many bitcoin are lost forever?

10% of all bitcoin did not move for over 10 years

About one in ten Bitcoin (BTC) hasn’t been moved in 10 or more years. At least that’s what blockchain analytics company Glassnode says.

Glassnode’s data shows that 1,857,721 Bitcoin have remained “stationary” for more than 10 years (as of Dec. 17). With a total of about 18,573,268 BTC in circulation (although this number grows every 10 minutes as miners find new blocks), this represents about 10% of all BTC mined to date.
