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.

    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'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.

Top News
NFT Trading Volume Tumbles 97%; Bitcoin Sell Off Ongoing
NFTs trading volumes fell 97% in September from a record high in January. According to data from analytics firm Dune Analytics, the value of these transactions dropped to $466 million from $17 billion in September from the start of 2022. NFTs’ Interest Is Waning The decline in NFT trading volumes is part of a broader decline in the crypto sector as investors lose confidence in the asset’s potential due to the increasing monetary policy tightening. Due to the rapid pace of monetary policy, investors are cutting off their exposure to speculative assets, contributing to a bigger decline in the crypto industry. Since November 2021, the market cap of the cryptocurrency industry has dropped by around $2 trillion. In August, the number of trade transactions involving non-fungible tokens had dropped by 40% in the second quarter of the year as interest in digital coins decreased. According to Footprint Analytics, the NFT market had also cooled off during this period. During this time, the total trading volume of NFT had dropped from $19.1 billion in the first quarter to $11.26 billion in the second quarter. OpenSea, the world’s largest NFT marketplace, also experienced a significant decrease in its daily trading volume. On August 26, the trading volume on the platform dropped to $10.05 million, which is the lowest since July 2021. The decrease in the trading volume on the NFT market was attributed to the effects of the crypto winter. In June, a survey revealed that most people who bought NFTs in the second quarter of 2022 were only interested in making money. It’s no surprise that the trading volume on the market decreased during this period. Over half of the investors who bought NFTs only wanted to increase their financial position. Economic Data Strong, Bitcoin Sells Off Bitcoin is currently unable to break above its current price range. However, gains were surrounded by volatility as macroeconomic forces took over the cryptocurrency. BTC is currently trading at around $19,000. In the last 24 hours, it has experienced sideways movement. Despite the volatility, large cryptocurrencies have managed to maintain their gains from the previous week. During the weeks before the Ethereum merge, which took place on December 6, Bitcoin on-chain activity was reportedly lit up like a Christmas tree. Although the upgrade was not happening on the bitcoin network, it still increased activity on other networks. After developers completed the merge, the network activity on the various networks started to decline. That is because the network activity has started to return to normal levels. The difficulty adjustment for bitcoin mining was performed on December 2, which resulted in a 2.1% decrease in the mining difficulty. That reduced the production rate of blocks to 5.94 blocks per hour. It occurred just before the hash rate hit a new record high. The difficulty adjustment reduced the average transaction per block, which is good news for bitcoin miners struggling with falling revenues. During the week, the average transaction per block decreased by 1.55%. The mining hash rate of bitcoin has returned to its pre-merger levels, which suggests a reversal from its previous trend. However, this level remains on the high side. That suggests that miners are still more confident about the future of cryptocurrency. A Decline in Revenues Bitcoin miners are feeling the heat due to the market’s lack of recovery. Daily revenues for miners have dropped to around $17 million, which is their lowest point in the last year. That represents a decline of 4.04% during seven days. The daily fees miners pay have followed the same downward trend, decreasing by 19.49% to $254,199. That has brought down the percentage of the total revenues they make up by fees to 1.48%. The biggest decliners during the week were the daily transaction volumes and average transaction values. The former experienced a decrease of 37.61%, bringing the average value to $12,304. The daily transaction volumes decreased by 38.57%, reaching around $3.085 billion. That was the biggest drop recorded during the week. The average daily transactions per day also decreased by 1.55%, reaching $250,755. Bitcoin’s price has also followed the same downward trend. It could not reclaim the $20,000 mark, which it had been trading at during the previous cycle peak. It has turned into a support level for the bulls.
