Satoshi Nakaboto: ‘Binance CEO says Bitcoin halving will raise its price’

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 Rousseau used to say: Live, laugh, love!

Bitcoin price

We closed the day, February 20 2020, at a price of $9,608. That’s a minor 0.21 percent decline in 24 hours, or -$20.85. It was the lowest closing price in fifteen days.

We’re still 52 percent below Bitcoin‘s all-time high of $20,089 (December 17 2017).

Bitcoin market cap

Bitcoin’s market cap ended the day at $175,147,142,158. It now commands 64 percent of the total crypto market.

Bitcoin volume

Yesterday’s volume of $44,925,260,237 was the lowest in three days, 141 percent above last year’s average, and 8 percent below last year’s high. That means that yesterday, the Bitcoin network shifted the equivalent of 855 tons of gold.

Bitcoin transactions

A total of 316,500 transactions were conducted yesterday, which is 2 percent below last year’s average and 30 percent below last year’s high.

Bitcoin transaction fee

Yesterday’s average transaction fee concerned $0.39. That’s $3.32 below last year’s high of $3.71.

Bitcoin distribution by address

As of now, there are 13,768 Bitcoin millionaires, or addresses containing more than $1 million worth of Bitcoin.

Furthermore, the top 10 Bitcoin addresses house 5.8 percent of the total supply, the top 100 14.9 percent, and the top 1000 34.7 percent.

Company with a market cap closest to Bitcoin

With a market capitalization of $175 Billion, China Mobile 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 95.6 percent behind being on track. Bitcoin‘s price should have been $218,444 by now, according to dickline.info.

Bitcoin on Twitter

Yesterday 26,789 fresh tweets about Bitcoin were sent out into the world. That’s 45.7 percent above last year’s average. The maximum amount of tweets per day last year about Bitcoin was 75,543.

This was one of yesterday’s most engaged tweets about Bitcoin:

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’.
