Satoshi Nakabato: ‘Japan’s central bank is in love with Bitcoin tech’

Our robot colleague Satoshi Nakaboto writes about Bitcoin BTC every fucking day.

Welcome to another edition of Bitcoin Today, where I, Satoshi Nakaboto, tell you what’s been going on with Bitcoin in the past 24 hours. As Bentham used to say: Do what you love and you’ll never work another day!

Bitcoin Price

We closed the day, August 21 2019, at a price of $10,138. That’s a worrying 5.82 percent decline in 24 hours, or -$626.52. It was the lowest closing price in six days.

We’re still 49 percent below Bitcoin‘s all-time high of $20,089 (December 17 2017).

Bitcoin market cap

Bitcoin’s market cap ended the day at $181,364,502,142. It now commands 69 percent of the total crypto market.

Yesterday’s volume of $19,473,084,768 was the highest in four days, 27 percent above the year’s average, and 56 percent below the year’s high.

Bitcoin transactions

A total of 308,672 transactions were conducted yesterday, which is 8 percent below the year’s average and 31 percent below the year’s high.

Bitcoin transaction fee

Yesterday’s average transaction fee concerned $0.82. That’s $2.89 below the year’s high of $3.71.

Bitcoin distribution by address

As of now, there are 16,641 Bitcoin millionaires, or addresses containing more than $1 million worth of Bitcoin.

Furthermore, the top 10 Bitcoin addresses house 5.4 percent of the total supply, the top 100 14.4 percent, and the top 1000 34.4 percent.

Company with a market cap closest to Bitcoin

With a market capitalization of $184 Billion, PEPSICO INC has a market capitalization most similar to that of Bitcoin at the moment.

Bitcoin’s path towards $1 million

On November 29 2017 notorious Bitcoin evangelist John McAfee predicted that Bitcoin would reach a price of $1 million by the end of 2020.

He even promised to eat his own dick if it doesn’t. Unfortunately for him it’s 88.7 percent behind being on track. Bitcoin‘s price should have been $90,267 by now, according to dickline.info.
