For any droplet with IPv6 there is assignet /64 IPv6 net, but only 16 addresses aviable for use. Why? Can I somehow use more, then 16 addresses?

DigitalOcean only provides 16 IPv6 addresses per Droplet

The /64 isn't assigned to the droplet, it's just the size of the shared subnet where all droplets live.

(Like when you connect to a LAN that uses /24 IPv4, your OS shows it as "192.168.1.123/24", but that doesn't mean it's your /24, it's the entire LAN's.)
