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 Marie Curie used to say: Yippee!
We closed the day, September 24 2019, at a price of $8,620. That’s a very concerning 11.39 percent decline in 24 hours, or -$1108.75. It was the lowest closing price in one hundred and two days.
We’re still 57 percent below Bitcoin‘s all-time high of $20,089 (December 17 2017).
Bitcoin market cap
Bitcoin’s market cap ended the day at $154,785,821,876. It now commands 69 percent of the total crypto market.
Yesterday’s volume of $25,002,886,689 was the highest in sixty-seven days, 62 percent above the year’s average, and 44 percent below the year’s high. That means that yesterday, the Bitcoin network shifted the equivalent of 507 tons of gold.
A total of 353,106 transactions were conducted yesterday, which is 5 percent above the year’s average and 21 percent below the year’s high.
Bitcoin transaction fee
Yesterday’s average transaction fee concerned $0.44. That’s $3.27 below the year’s high of $3.71.
Bitcoin distribution by address
As of now, there are 12,254 Bitcoin millionaires, or addresses containing more than $1 million worth of Bitcoin.
Furthermore, the top 10 Bitcoin addresses house 5.6 percent of the total supply, the top 100 14.5 percent, and the top 1000 34.3 percent.
Company with a market cap closest to Bitcoin
With a market capitalization of $154 Billion, HSBC Holdings 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 91.9 percent behind being on track. Bitcoin‘s price should have been $106,375 by now, according to dickline.info.
Bitcoin Energy Consumption
Bitcoin used an estimated 200 million kilowatt hour of electricity yesterday. On a yearly basis that would amount to 73 terawatt hour. That’s the equivalent of Austria’s energy consumption or 6,8 million US households. Bitcoin’s energy consumption now represents 0.3% of the whole world’s electricity use.
Bitcoin on Twitter
Yesterday 21,250 fresh tweets about Bitcoin were sent out into the world. That’s 12.6 percent above the year’s average. The maximum amount of tweets per day this year about Bitcoin was 41,687.
