24 Fun Bitcoin Facts And Figures [Infographics]

For those who want to learn more about Bitcoin and its 10-year history, ICOWatchList.com has gathered the most interesting facts about it in one infographic.

A little bit more than 10 years ago, on October 31, 2008, a new cryptocurrency came to light. Now this cryptocurrency is known all over the world and its name is Bitcoin.

Though Bitcoin has gained an enormous popularity and sometimes it really seems that absolutely everyone today is talking about it, there are still a lot of unexplained theories about it.

Still, nobody knows for sure who has invented it. Of course, we know that it was Satoshi Nakamoto but it is just a name that hides a real person (or a group of individuals).This secret hasn’t been disclosed yet, nevertheless, there are several guesses who it could be.

We all have heard that the first thing bought for Bitcoin was pizza (do not forget to celebrate the day of Bitcoin Pizza on May 22!), but have you heard about some other rather weird things that you can pay for with the help of Bitcoin?

Moreover, while some people consider it to be too expansive to purchase one Bitcoin (though its price is changing constantly, now it is still rather high), there is another option: the smallest denomination of one Bitcoin is its one hundred millionth part and it is called a Satoshi.

Do you know that there will be never more than 21 million Bitcoin? It’s a limited amount and it will never be increased. What’s more,  80% of Bitcoin has been already mined but the entire amount of them won’t be mined until roughly 2140.

Yes, there are a lot of theories, a lot of mysteries and a lot of controversial facts around Bitcoin and not all of them are 100% true.

So, ICOWatchList.com has prepared an alternative guide through Bitcoin’s 10-year journey. It has gathered the most unbelievable, the most unrealistic and the funniest facts about Bitcoin in one infographic that we are glad to provide to your attention.
