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 Satoshi Nakamoto used to say: Bob’s your uncle!

We closed the day, September 14 2020, at a price of $10,680. That’s a respectable 3.40 percent increase in 24 hours, or $352. It was the highest closing price in eleven days.

We’re still 46 percent below Bitcoin‘s all-time high of $20,089 (December 17 2017).

Bitcoin‘s market cap ended the day at $197,484,272,947. It now commands 57 percent of the total crypto market.

Yesterday’s volume of $35,453,581,940 was the lowest in four days, 54 percent above last year’s average, and 52 percent below last year’s high. That means that yesterday, the Bitcoin network shifted the equivalent of 562 tons of gold.

A total of 353,223 transactions were conducted yesterday, which is 10 percent above last year’s average and 21 percent below last year’s high.

Yesterday’s average transaction fee concerned $1.15. That’s $2.75 below last year’s high of $3.91.

As of now, there are 17,616 Bitcoin millionaires, or addresses containing more than $1 million worth of Bitcoin.

Furthermore, the top 10 Bitcoin addresses house 4.8 percent of the total supply, the top 100 14.1 percent, and the top 1000 34.8 percent.

With a market capitalization of $198 billion, Novartis has a market capitalization most similar to that of Bitcoin at the moment.

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 100.0 percent behind being on track. Bitcoin‘s price should have been $593,592 by now, according to

On a yearly basis Bitcoin now uses an estimated 69 terawatt hour of electricity. That’s the equivalent of Czech Republic’s energy consumption.

Yesterday 29,947 fresh tweets about Bitcoin were sent out into the world. That’s 44.4 percent above last year’s average. The maximum amount of tweets per day last year about Bitcoin was 82,838.

This was yesterday’s most engaged tweet about Bitcoin:
