Bitcoin from Inception to Present

Bitcoin was created in 2008 and launched to the public in 2009 by an unidentified developer or group of developers using the alias Satoshi Nakamoto. Nobody owns or controls bitcoin because its source code and design are publicly available. To participate in the Bitcoin movement, you can purchase, mine, or trade the cryptocurrency.


Since its inception, this major cryptocurrency's price has increased significantly. The price of Bitcoin began at a preposterous $0 and has already reached an astounding all-time high of over $64,000. Every other cryptocurrency startup is envious and aspires to achieve such tremendous growth. This rise took 12 years, and it was certainly not a smooth ascent. There were numerous lows to highs and vice versa. The rise of Bitcoin is evidence that cryptocurrency satisfies a need for which there is a current and potentially soaring future demand.


A brief examination of Bitcoin's price history on CoinMarketCap reveals that this leading cryptocurrency experienced two notable price peaks, the first at $19,000+ in December 2017 and the second at $64,000+ in November 2021. As of November 2022, the Bitcoin price is significantly lower than its all-time high, ranging around $20,000 on average. Now is the time to speculate on the price of Bitcoin in 2023.
