inverse square distribution iny my bitcoins, not a surprise at all.

this is to be expected.

in general 20% of anything have 80% of influence over that thing.
because an inverse square is inherent in too many correlations, especially in (pseudo) random ones.

the 80% can scream how unfair this is, and the top .1% may not care, but there is a mathematical basis for the unequal distribution of power, ending up as y=1/x*x

@Factor6 - maybe you will appreciate it when the cash will banned or highly limited, and the negative interests rates will be put on your current bank account :)
