To share :

While Bitcoin has just entered a new year, this one still bears the marks of 2022 with a price of €15,000. Nevertheless, to console itself on this January 3, the ecosystem is celebrating an important day for Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.

Bitcoin crosses 2023

Although its price has been divided by more than 3 since its high in November 2021 (€56,000), Bitcoin is still not dead as some would like. This one has therefore crossed a new year at a record price against all expectations…

Despite the unreassuring climate conveyed by recent events in the crypto sector, it is important to remember that factually, Bitcoin passed its third best on January 1st.

  • 2010 – €0.2
  • 2011 – 3.65€
  • 2012 – 12.25€
  • 2013 – 690€
  • 2014 – 543€
  • 2015 – €265
  • 2016 – 400€
  • 2017 – 948€
  • 2018 – 11923€
  • 2019 – 3363€
  • 2020 – 6417€
  • 2021 – 24205€
  • 2022 – 42270€
  • 2023 – €15,560

As its data shows, over the years, bitcoin has become more and more popular and has attracted great interest from investors and consumers. So, although bitcoin has gone through a lot of unfortunate events during 2022, it seems to keep an overall trend and is reminiscent of the year 2019.

Bitcoin celebrates an important date

Also, this January 3rd is a very special date for Bitcoin and the entire crypto industry…. The first cryptocurrency celebrates its 14th anniversary today. Indeed, 14 years ago, to the day, Bitcoin was launched for the very first time by its creator, Satoshi Nakamoto.

This launch was marked by the mining of the first block of bitcoin, called “genesis block” (genesis block) by Satoshi Nakamoto, on January 3, 2009. This contained the first transactions of the Bitcoin network and were therefore validated in the first bitcoin network test. This famous block mined on a small server in Helsinki, Finland allowed Satoshi to test the network’s reward system at a time when mining required fewer resources. For this, Satoshi had received 50 BTC, the reward of the time. Divided by 2 since inception, today the reward for a mined block is 6.25 Bitcoins.

Thus, during these full-scale test phases, it is estimated that the creator of bitcoin has managed to extract around 1 million Bitcoin stored on multiple wallets, on which he will have only used 10 so far. Since that first inception, the bitcoin blockchain has continued to expand over time. New blocks are added regularly by “miners”, professionals and individuals using the computing power of their machines to solve complex mathematical equations of the network.

With more and more users, the Bitcoin craze gave life to many crypto projects over the next 14 years by creating a real ecosystem. It remains to be seen whether 2023 will be more prolific for Bitcoin and cryptocurrency in general to hope for a better 15th anniversary, January 3, 2024.
