In addition, Arkham has identified and labeled 36 million Bitcoin deposit and holding addresses that are associated with the exchange with its largest cold wallet having approximately 10,000 BTC.

MicroStrategy Remains Largest Corporate Holder

Notably, in terms of Bitcoin ownership among companies, the business intelligence firm MicroStrategy continues to hold the largest BTC reserves. Earlier, MicroStrategy’s CEO, Michael Saylor, reaffirmed his commitment to Bitcoin with a X post stating, “In #Bitcoin We Trust.”
