If we exclude Block.one of the TOP 10 addresses own 39,67% of all tokens (396,735,539).
The TOP 100 addresses control 64,82% of total emissions (excluding Block.one), and TOP-1000 owns 75,81%.

Bitfinex is aiming for this place, and if at least one of the first dozens of addresses belongs to this exchange, it can greatly affect the outcome of any vote.
