Bitcoin (BTC) History and Overview

Bitcoin (BTC) History and Overview

Bitcoin is the first and most popular digital currency - a cryptocurrency. It powers a peer-to-peer network for the exchange of value through the use of a decentralized protocol. The idea behind Bitcoin is to have a system where there is no middleman or central authority. The live Bitcoin to USD conversion is $ 64,264.94.

Bitcoin refers to both the software protocol as well as to the digital asset, which goes by the ticker symbol BTC. At its most basic level, Bitcoin is useful for transacting value outside the traditional financial system. You can buy and sell BTC for other cryptos alongside more traditional currencies at crypto exchanges like Binance, Kraken and Bitstamp.

Satoshi Nakamoto, a mysterious person (or group of people), launched Bitcoin in 2009. What sets it apart is that it's completely decentralized, meaning no single entity controls it. Instead, a network of computers, known as miners, maintains and validates transactions.

Bitcoin mining creates new bitcoins in the form of block rewards. The process verifies transactions on the blockchain. Miners earn Bitcoin as a reward for completing "blocks" of verified transactions and adding them to the blockchain.

It has a maximum total supply of 21 million, which means that there can only be 21 million in circulation. However, the number of issued Bitcoins will likely never reach 21 million. That is because of the use of rounding operators in the codebase.

You can break a single Bitcoin down into 100 million tiny pieces called "satoshis." You can store them in a digital wallet. The current price of 1 BTC in USD is $ 64,264.94. But you do not need to buy a whole Bitcoin; you can buy a very small fraction of it.

You can send parts of a Bitcoin to pay for things. You can also trade it for other crypto assets. But when you dig into the technicalities, it's like peeling an onion—layer after layer of complexity.

All Bitcoin transactions happen on a blockchain. Think of it as a public digital ledger that everyone can see but no one can tamper with. Miners are the ones who validate and secure these transactions. They validate transactions by solving complex math problems and receive new bitcoins as a reward for their efforts.

Key Points to Remember

  • Bitcoin was the first big player in the crypto game, and it's still the largest by market value.
  • Unlike traditional money, it exists on a decentralized network called a blockchain.
  • Its value has had a roller-coaster ride, experiencing dramatic ups and downs over the years.
  • Because of the digital asset's success, countless other cryptos have sprung up, increasing the use of blockchain technology.
  • You can buy Bitcoin on several cryptocurrency exchanges.

ALTCOIN SEASON NEXT?🤔 MY THOUGHS 👇


I personaly think this is a bear trap for altcoins. Many altcoins made new multi monthly new lows, except few exceptions. The ones that didn't make new lows will be faster horses.


Currently if you check BITCOIN / ALTCOIN Season Index you can see $BTC has prevailed. Which should mean soon capital will start shifting to altcoins.


Global Liquidity index is also giving us a hint that 2nd part of 2024 and 2025 will see massive liquidity boost and this is a time where alternative asset class will bloom --> quality altcoins should see exponential growths.


I'm attaching 2 charts that show what I'm talking about.


In short: smart people are buying now and accumulating. Crypto tourist are leaving or lost interest. Tourists will return in few months to buy new highs.


Todays prices are what everybody dreamed off and now is afraid to buy. Remember biggest profits are made by buying fear not hype and green candles 😉

MARKET REVIEW 👇


The past 30 days have been very rough in crypto as most altcoins made new lows or made heavy corrections.Meme coins experianced heavy corrections so in my opinion following weeks will be fueled by fundamentaly strong projects.


This is not the time to quit. This is the time to dig deep, analyse and prepare for the real altcoin bull run. Mega sales like these are what we dream. When sales come everybody is afraid to buy.


REMEMBER 👉 YOU NEED TO BUY FEAR!

THIS IS HOW YOU MAKE MONEY LONG TERM ✅


In truth altcoin season never picked up in last 2 years. It was mainly $BTC , $ETH and just few AI and Meme projects.


Who knows me knows I used to say sooner than later this industry wont offer free money and tide wont lift all boats anymore. Fundamentals will start to matter. And that's the truth for 2023 & 2024 so far.


If you've been following our strategies you've noticed we haven't made new lows. Our thesis switch shows we're on right track and $ROSE has been one of best performers in past 30 days.


If you observe Meme coin dominance it's fading away. And soon capital shift will start to occur. In my opinion strong fundamentals will matter the most and narrative fit.


I'll continue to monitor the markets and prepare us for the real altcoin bull run ✅


Stack strong and stay strong 💪
