Our robot colleague Satoshi Nakaboto writes about Bitcoin 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!
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).
