What you should know
- The smallest unit of Bitcoin is referred to as Satoshi, which is 0.00000001 Bitcoins. But as this number is so little, you can’t actually buy 1 Satoshi on any crypto exchange.
- The number of BTC wallets holding at least a satoshi or greater has been increasing since the plunge of the 2017 bull run, after reaching its peak.
- At the time of writing this report, the flagship crypto traded at $22,858.44 with a daily trading volume of $67.3Billion. Bitcoin is up 4.25% in the last 24 hours. It now has a market value of $424.6Billion.
- Bitcoin remained confidently above $22,500 amid prevailing market conditions pointing to the bullish trend in play; though external market forces such as institutional investors have impacted heavily on the flagship crypto market, on the bias that a significant amount of leading financial brands now refer to Bitcoin as a treasury asset.
