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 Hannah Arendt used to say: Time to learn some stuff about Bitcoin!

Bitcoin price

We closed the day, December 15 2019, at a price of $7,152. That’s a minor 0.39 percent increase in 24 hours, or $28. 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).

Yesterday’s volume of $16,881,129,804 was the lowest in three days, 2 percent above the year’s average, and 62 percent below the year’s high. That means that yesterday, the Bitcoin network shifted the equivalent of 356 tons of gold.

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.
