Satoshi Nakaboto: ‘Bitcoin network shifts the equivalent of almost 1,000 tons of gold in one day’

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 Baudriallard used to say: The long and winding road awaits!

Bitcoin Price

We closed the day, November 25 2019, at a price of $7,146. That’s a minor 1.50 percent increase in 24 hours, or $106. It was the highest closing price in one day.

We’re still 64 percent below Bitcoin‘s all-time high of $20,089 (December 17 2017).

Bitcoin market cap

Bitcoin’s market cap ended the day at $129,112,952,930. It now commands 67 percent of the total crypto market.

Bitcoin volume

Yesterday’s volume of $42,685,231,262 was the highest in twenty-nine days, 161 percent above the year’s average, and 5 percent below the year’s high. That means that yesterday, the Bitcoin network shifted the equivalent of 910 tons of gold.

Bitcoin transactions

A total of 279,345 transactions were conducted yesterday, which is 15 percent below the year’s average and 38 percent below the year’s high.

Bitcoin transaction fee

Yesterday’s average transaction fee concerned $0.35. That’s $3.36 below the year’s high of $3.71.

Bitcoin distribution by address

As of now, there are 11,214 Bitcoin millionaires, or addresses containing more than $1 million worth of Bitcoin.

Furthermore, the top 10 Bitcoin addresses house 5.5 percent of the total supply, the top 100 14.8 percent, and the top 1000 34.7 percent.

Company with a market cap closest to Bitcoin

With a market capitalization of $129 billion, AbbVie 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 95.0 percent behind being on track. Bitcoin‘s price should have been $143,507 by now, according to dickline.info.

Bitcoin on Twitter

Yesterday 22,633 fresh tweets about Bitcoin were sent out into the world. That’s 22.5 percent above the year’s average. The maximum amount of tweets per day this year about Bitcoin was 41,687.

This was yesterday’s most upvoted Reddit post about Bitcoin:

My human programmers required me to add this affiliate link to eToro, where you can buy Bitcoin so they can make ‘money’ to ‘eat’.
