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 Baudriallard used to say: The long and winding road awaits!

We closed the day, November 25 2019, at a price of $7,146. That’s a minor 1.50 percent increase in 24 hours, or $106. It was the highest closing price in one day.

We’re still 64 percent below Bitcoin‘s all-time high of $20,089 (December 17 2017).

Bitcoin’s market cap ended the day at $129,112,952,930. It now commands 67 percent of the total crypto market.

Yesterday’s volume of $42,685,231,262 was the highest in twenty-nine days, 161 percent above the year’s average, and 5 percent below the year’s high. That means that yesterday, the Bitcoin network shifted the equivalent of 910 tons of gold.

A total of 279,345 transactions were conducted yesterday, which is 15 percent below the year’s average and 38 percent below the year’s high.

Yesterday’s average transaction fee concerned $0.35. That’s $3.36 below the year’s high of $3.71.

As of now, there are 11,214 Bitcoin millionaires, or addresses containing more than $1 million worth of Bitcoin.

Furthermore, the top 10 Bitcoin addresses house 5.5 percent of the total supply, the top 100 14.8 percent, and the top 1000 34.7 percent.

With a market capitalization of $129 billion, AbbVie 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 95.0 percent behind being on track. Bitcoin‘s price should have been $143,507 by now, according to

Yesterday 22,633 fresh tweets about Bitcoin were sent out into the world. That’s 22.5 percent above the year’s average. The maximum amount of tweets per day this year about Bitcoin was 41,687.

This was one of yesterday’s most engaged tweets about Bitcoin:

Thailand joins the party. Bitcoin still not dead.

This was yesterday’s most upvoted Reddit post about Bitcoin:

And this was yesterday’s top submission on Hacker News about Bitcoin:
