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 Machiavelli used to say: Fight the power!

Bitcoin price

We closed the day, June 21 2020, at a price of $9,303. That’s a minor 0.29 percent decline in 24 hours, or -$27.30. It was the lowest closing price in one day.

We’re still 53 percent below Bitcoin‘s all-time high of $20,089 (December 17 2017).

Yesterday’s volume of $15,324,301,169 was the lowest in two hundred days, 33 percent below last year’s average, and 79 percent below last year’s high. That means that yesterday, the Bitcoin network shifted the equivalent of 273 tons of gold.
