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 Pasteur used to say: Peel off the skin of this mystery and eat the tasty fruit inside!
We closed the day, February 12 2020, at a price of $10,326. That’s a minor 1.21 percent increase in 24 hours, or $123. It was the highest closing price in one hundred and forty-nine days.
We’re still 48 percent below Bitcoin’s all-time high of $20,089 (December 17 2017).

Bitcoin’s market cap ended the day at $188,081,204,386. It now commands 63 percent of the total crypto market.
Yesterday’s volume of $43,444,303,830 was the highest in twenty-eight days, 140 percent above last year’s average, and 3 percent below last year’s high. That means that yesterday, the Bitcoin network shifted the equivalent of 858 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.
He even promised to eat his own dick if it doesn’t. Unfortunately for him it’s 95.0 percent behind being on track. Bitcoin’s price should have been $210,166 by now, according to dickline.info.
