78 percent of Bitcoin currency stashed under digital mattress, study finds

More than three-quarters of the digital coins in the Bitcoin digital currency scheme aren’t circulating because they remain dormant in user accounts that have never participated in outgoing transactions, a recently published study has found.

Based on exchange rates listed on Mt.Gox—the most widely used Bitcoin exchange—the coins have a value of more than $82.87 million. On May 13, the date the researchers analyzed their data, there were slightly more than 9 million BTCs in existence.
