Bitcoin’s youthful spirit is off to a gentle start

Tuesday, January 4, 2022, 11:43 a.m.

Happy New Year! And more importantly, happy birthday, Bitcoin! Yesterday marked the 13th birthday of the original and still largest cryptocurrency, the beginning of its teenage years. What kind of youth can we expect?

Although the concept of Bitcoin was introduced to the world on October 28, 2008 with the publication of the Bitcoin whitepaper, it actually wasn’t until January 3, 2009 that the anonymous creator Satoshi Nakamoto mined the first Bitcoin himself and started a revolution in the financial world initiated. Today the cryptocurrency ecosystem spans thousands of cryptocurrencies and there are projects around the world using the technology.

Last year, Bitcoin topped $ 1 trillion in market value for the first time, El Salvador adopted Bitcoin as legal tender, and banks like Morgan Stanley and JP Morgan began offering high-net-worth customers access to Bitcoin funds. What’s in store for 2022?

It’s been a smooth start to the year, with Bitcoin price continuing to trade in the same range between $ 46,000 and $ 51,000. Bitcoin is currently down about two percent in the past 24 hours and trades for more than $ 46,000, albeit below its average trading price of about $ 48,000 over the past 200 days. The global crypto market is down about 1.5 percent since yesterday to about $ 2.21 trillion.
