I'm looking for a way to retrieve all address balances of addresses with a non-zero balance in the blockchain.

Is there a software tool that can calculate the balances in an accessible format? Or perhaps I can download them somewhere?

With an accessible format I mean that it can be interpreted by a computer. Either in a database-structure or in parseable text format.


This guy wanted to do the same thing. You can find a solution there.

in short:

  • get a Linux Box/VM with >=8GB RAM
  • download blockparser
  • compile it
  • run "./parser allBalances -w 250000 >allBalances.txt"

the parser run take around 2 minutes on my vSphere VM (2x3Ghz Xeon, 16GB of RAM)

now you have a list of the top 250.000 adresses sorted by BTC amount.

add some sed/awk/cut magic to make a csv and you are done.
