This is a potent set of metrics which can elucidate the dispersion of ownership of the address space in a cryptocurrency. The trend can demonstrate whether or not a cryptocurrency is in a concentrative or distributive phase. It should be noted that supply is arbitrary, and for large-cap assets varies between tens of millions to hundreds of billions; so unit dispersion is often not directly comparable between chains. Put otherwise: it is cheaper to accumulate addresses with 100 XRP than 100 BTC since those are so different in fiat terms. This metric can also be gamed to a degree by adding dust to many thousands of addresses.
