How many addresses did Ethereum have when it launched? In other words, how many pre-sale addresses are there?

1 Answer 1



I got this number using the genesis block that I created myself using the instructions in this blog post. I generated the JSON file, imported it into a NodeJS REPL and queried the length of the alloc property. This list includes all presale addresses and their balances at the time of the network launch.
