Cryptocurrency bull run correlates with new unique addresses 

The report highlights some of the factors driving the increase in new unique wallets created on the Blockchain.com platform. According to the research report:

“Over the past year, the unique wallets activity highlights an influx of new users in the crypto sector as the value of digital assets like Bitcoin surged.
