Bitcoin Birthday Collection: Bitcoin’s White Paper Turned 10 years!

October 31, 2008 White paper of the most famous cryptocurrency in the world, Bitcoin, was published. The author of the publication was a mysterious man Satoshi Nakamoto, whose identity has not been revealed yet. On the birthday of the technical document of the coin, The Coin Shark prepared TOP fascinating historical facts about BTC:

1. Despite the fact that “Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System” was published on this day 10 years ago exactly, Bitcoin network itself began operating in early January 2009. Along with it, the first block was found, for which the reward was 50 BTC – a great amount of money today.

2. The first cryptocurrency exchange MtGox appeared in 2011 and became the center of crypto industry at that time. The rate of the coin went up, one BTC’s cost was about 5-6 cents.

As time has shown, he made the right choice.

4. On May 22, 2010, two most expensive pizzas in history were sold. At that time, the cost of bitcoins was nominal, and the first miners simply did not know where to put their “candy wrappers”. One user of a bitcoin forum under the nickname Laszlo wrote that he would pay 10 thousand coins to someone who would deliver him two pizzas. At that time, the deal looked completely normal, at that rate Laszlo did not overpay for his lunch, but already in August of that year, two pizzas cost him $ 600. As of today, Laszlo bought two pizzas for $ 70 million. Bitcoin Pizza Day is celebrated on May 22 every year.

When Will Finally Growth Happen? Or Fresh Forecasts of Cryptocurrency Analysts

As we all remember, the 2018th year was far from the best in the history of Bitcoin as well as other cryptocurrencies. For the previous year, the first cryptocurrency slipped from $20,000 to $3,200. As of this writing, one BTC coin costs $3,940.

Perceptible revival in the cryptocurrency market has provoked another dose of optimistic statements from analysts. Let’s take a look at what professional traders and cryptocurrency market experts are saying about the immediate prospects for the Bitcoin rate.

Leah Wald

A professional trader, and in the past, World Bank economist Leah Wald, claims that the rate of the main cryptocurrency will fall to a critical level of $1,500, and only after that, new growth can begin, up to $6,500. But the user with the nickname Filb Filb doubts her prediction and claims that BTC has already “found its bottom” and now only the growth up to $6,000 and higher is waiting for us.

Leah Wald is confident in her forecast, so she decided to make a bet with her opponent – in case her prediction turns out to be wrong, she will have to transfer 1 Bitcoin to the user Filb Filb.

Cane IslandCrypto

An analyst from Texas, who is known on Twitter under the nickname Cane IslandCrypto recently published his own vision of the BTC price behavior in the coming years. So, he believes that a long and confident uptrend is waiting for us:

  • until the end of 2019, the BTC course will be $7,800;
  • in 2021 – $28,627;
  • in 2023 – $93,382;
  • in 2026 – $471,532.

He is confident that the bear market is over and only growth is waiting for us in the coming years.

Canaccord Genuity CapitalMarkets

A group of leading analysts of Canadian financial institutions Canaccord Genuity CapitalMarkets has a similar opinion about the rate of the first cryptocurrency. They believe that in two years Bitcoin will return to its peak values and go higher.

To create the own Bitcoin price chart, analysts were guided by historical data for 6 years (from 2011 to 2017). After analyzing the behavior of BTC, they came to the conclusion that at the moment the price of the asset has already “found the bottom”. And in the near future, the BTC course should start its growth.

Conclusion

If we analyze this information, we can conclude that the mood of market participants is beginning to change for the better. So far, the Bitcoin rate shows growing, even though slow: in recent months it has grown from $3,200 to $3,940 and continues to ascend. The nearest psychological mark is at the level of $4,000 – $4,100.
