More than 700 wallet projects have been established by April 2019.
The number of wallet users now exceeds 34 million, indicating an
increase of 2.7 million and a growth rate of 9% compared with the
previous quarter. In terms of user visits, the Q1 average UV of
hardware wallets is 6,800/day, which is 1.6 times that of software
wallets. In terms of wallet types, the ratio of software wallets to
hardware wallets in the current market is 8:2, indicating the obvious
long tail effect of software wallets over hardware wallets, non-full
node wallets, and wallets supporting decentralized storage. These
are the mainstream products in the market.
