About Bitcoin (BTC)

Bitcoin is one of the most popular cryptocurrencies in the market. First introduced in 2009 by Satoshi Nakamoto, Bitcoin has held the crypto market’s number one spot according to market capitalization. Bitcoin paved the way for many existing altcoins in the market and marked a pivotal moment for digital payment solutions.  

As the world’s first cryptocurrency, Bitcoin has come a long way in terms of its value. However, one does not have to buy an entire bitcoin as bitcoins can be divided into small units called satoshis, named after the creator. A satoshi is equivalent to 0.00000001 bitcoin.

There is no physical BTC token so you can think of bitcoin as digital money. Bitcoin transactions are fully transparent and can’t be censored. You can send money to anyone in the world with ease. It’s a financial system backed by thousands of computers, known as ‘nodes’, around the world, instead of a single central bank or government, i.e. hence the term ‘decentralization’. 

Bitcoin Upgrades

Because Bitcoin is decentralized and community-driven, many upgrades to Bitcoin come in the form of formal proposals called Bitcoin Improvement Proposals, or BIPs. This ensures that the software is always undergoing upgrades that can further contribute to the community’s needs. Anyone can propose a BIP, and the community will reject or approve of the BIP collectively. One major upgrade to Bitcoin’s consensus protocol is the SegWit Upgrade, proposed in BIP 141 and designed to help the bitcoin scale to support more transactions to meet growing demand. BIPs like these change Bitcoin’s consensus rules, resulting in forks. 

Bitcoin Forks

Forks are the points where software is copied and modified, resulting in two chains with a shared original chain. There are two types of forks–soft and hard forks. Soft forks are upgrades that still allow un-upgraded nodes to interact with upgraded nodes. Hard forks are upgrades that do not allow un-upgraded nodes to interact with upgraded ones. Bitcoin Cash is an example of a hard fork of Bitcoin.

Because Bitcoin is decentralized, it is not subjected to inflation or any monetary policies created by any central banks or government. Instead, there will only ever be 21 million BTC in existence.

Common Bitcoin Misconceptions 

Bitcoin is just a passing phase.

Bitcoin and blockchain technology introduce solutions for real-world issues, seeking to help the unbanked population, combat counterfeiting and improve cross-border transactions to name a few. Even if we disregard the notion of bitcoin as a speculative asset or store of value, it is likely here to stay and disrupt many sectors.

Bitcoins can be copied and pasted, making them easy to counterfeit.

No, thanks to the Bitcoin protocol, your bitcoin cannot be copied. The word ‘crypto’ in ‘cryptocurrency’ comes from the word ‘cryptography’, a technique that allows for secure communication, meaning that it is impossible to counterfeit bitcoin, unlike fiat. In fact, Bitcoin solves the issue of double-spending, a loophole in traditional digital cash that allows a user to spend the same amount of funds twice.

Bitcoin is bad for the environment.

A significant percentage of bitcoin mining uses renewable energy (wind, solar, hydro etc) instead of traditional energy sources that are bad for the environment.

  1. How Many Bitcoins Are There? 

    Bitcoin has a circulating supply of 18,832,712 BTC and a maximum supply of 21,000,000 (21 Million) BTC tokens.

  2. What Role Does Bitcoin Have as a Store of Value?

    Bitcoin is valued as a useful form of money, and is measured by its growth of users, merchants and accepted locations.

    Bitcoin's block size is capped at 1 MB, while Bitcoin Cash's block size is capped at 32 MB.

  4. Why Do Bitcoin Price Changes Impact Other Coins?

    Due to its pioneer status, a lot of investors view it as the crypto market’s reserve so other coins depend on its value to remain high. 

  5. How Secure Is Bitcoin?

    Bitcoin is secured with a Proof-of-Work (PoW) mechanism,  which means millions of miners work together to secure the decentralized network. Each miner keeps a record of all transactions. Forcing a transaction is impossible because they would have to control 51% of all miners. 

  6. What Is Bitcoin Mining?

    Bitcoin mining is the process where miners contribute the processing power of their hardware rigs to solve cryptographic puzzles from each transaction on the Bitcoin blockchain.  Miners receive BTC for solving cryptographic puzzles, and transactions are recorded in blocks that get added to the blockchain. 

  7. How Can I Store My Bitcoin?

    Because BTC is a digital currency, it is stored in a digital wallet. Here are two ways to store your Bitcoin:

    1. Store your BTC on Binance exchange

    If you are looking for quick access to your BTC to facilitate trading, you can consider storing your Bitcoin on the Binance exchange. 

    1. Store your BTC in a Bitcoin wallet

    Alternatively, you can store your BTC in an external BTC wallet. There are hot and cold wallet solutions available in the market with different pros and cons, so you can explore the options to see which one suits you best.

Crypto Market Gains Retrace As Ethereum Merge Draws Closer
Crypto market sentiment had been turning more positive in the month of August, and this had seen the digital assets in the space return double-digit growth in the first week of the month. However, the market has been unable to hold its bullish trend properly, and cryptocurrencies are beginning to shed the gains that they had put on in the first week. While the assets remain largely at positive levels, the gains for last week are noticeably less than the previous week.Weekly Gains Drop Across The BoardThe weekly gains across the crypto market have been down for the last week. The Small Cap Index still remains the apparent winner through the week, as is expected during such recoveries. But it was in no way close to the gains that were recorded for the prior week.Small Cap altcoins came out on top with 8% gains for last week. This put it 2% ahead of the Mid and Large Cap Index and 5% better than Bitcoin’s performance. However, it should be taken into account that small cap altcoins possess more volatility compared to the other indexes. Hence the large swings in gains and losses.The Large Cap Index made a surprising move last week by rivaling the returns of the Mid Cap Index. Usually, in cases like these, the Mid Cap tends to outperform alongside the Small Cap, but last week saw it return 6% gains, the same as the Large Cap Index.Bitcoin was the worst performer of the bunch once more. It saw only 3% gains, maintaining a noticeable distance from the rest of the indexes. Bitcoin Sees Crypto Market Dominance DeclineBitcoin has been seeing its crypto market dominance decline over the last two years. With the entrance of popular cryptocurrencies such as Ethereum, the leading asset has had to give up more market share to make room for others. But even with so much market share already taken from the pioneer cryptocurrency, altcoins continue to dig their heels in.Last week, bitcoin recorded another decline in its market dominance. The 0.42% taken over by altcoins has now dragged bitcoin’s dominance down to the 40% territory. Meanwhile, Ethereum is seeing a growing market share. The altcoin added 0.89% last week, bringing its market dominance above 20% to 20.74% at the time of this writing.Stablecoins are also losing market share as investors begin to take more risks. USDT, USDC, and BUSD all saw declines of 0.03%, 0.17%, and 0.03% respectively. Surprisingly, Dogecoin added 0.15% to its market dominance, while Solana saw a 0.01% addition.The decline has seen more than $50 billion wiped off the crypto market cap, bringing it to $1.10 trillion at the time of writing.

Decline In Bitcoin Denominated Open Interest Sees Funding Rates Fall Below Neutral
Bitcoin funding rates have been on a bearish trend in recent months. It has now spent one of its longest stretches in neutral and below neutral territory. But even with the recovering prices and sentiment in the crypto space, the funding rates have refused to mirror the trend. Instead, it has spent another week below neutral, painting a grim picture of how traders are viewing the market presently.Traders Do Not Expect RecoveryBitcoin funding rates are a good indication of when traders expect some form of recovery in the coming days. Since the market crash in June, the rate has refused to record any significant positive momentum, indicating that bitcoin traders do not expect a recovery going forward.This comes even when the price of bitcoin has recently tested $25,000. Over the last week, the digital asset was able to add around $4,000 to its value, and even the declines have seen the digital assets record higher lows. Despite this, perp traders have refused to budge.At this point, it is a herculean task trying to determine if perp traders are just bored in the market or don’t expect any kind of significant recovery in the price of BTC. Mostly, their exposure to the market has been short as they continue to shy away from long trades.BTC funding rates remain below neutral | Source: Arcane ResearchThis has led to the bitcoin derivatives market grinding to a crawl. BTC funding rates have now spent the first two weeks of August below neutral, and exceptions are they will continue to remain so for the rest of the month.Bitcoin Open Interest TanksAt the start of the market recovery, the bitcoin open interest had been on a dramatic rise, suggesting that a short squeeze had led to the increase in price. It had maintained a respectable position after that, but the last week has seen a turn in the tide.Where Bitcoin open interest had been hitting new highs, it tanked last week. This was when the open interest in rival Ethereum had overtaken the open interest in BTC for the first time in history. BTC denominated open interest came in at a low $5.4 billion compared to Ethereum’s $8.2 billion.The decline in Bitcoin open interest also coincided with the fall below neutral in funding rates. This suggests that while the market may be in a slightly bullish state, traders are expecting the price to tank. However, the move to Ethereum shows that the same traders are predicting a high rise in the price of Ethereum following the Merge.
