Bitcoin - Statistics & Facts

Bitcoin, also called a mobile currency or a crypto currency, was created in 2009 by Satoshi Nakamoto, a mysterious individual or a group of people whose true identity is still unknown today. The main idea behind the establishment of this virtual currency was to enable quick and cheap online payments without the need to use traditional banking channels. Bitcoin gained in popularity when its price jumped from around 572.33 U.S. dollars in August 2016 to approximately 4,764.87 U.S. dollars in August 2017. The market capitalization of Bitcoin also increased dramatically in that time, and reached a level of 237.6 billion U.S. dollars in Q3 2017. As of October 2019, this virtual currency was worth 9,225 U.S. dollars.

The number of Bitcoin ATMs increased from 954 in January 2016 to 5,719 by October 2019. Most Bitcoin ATMs, as of September 2019, were located in the United States and Canada. The Bitcoin ATMs located in Europe constituted 21 percent of the global ATM market share. The leading ATM producer worldwide as of September 2019 was General Bytes, with approximately 32 percent of the market share.

However, the future of this virtual currency is yet unknown. If the most important difficulties are overcome, especially those related with regulations on the cryptocurrency market, and people all over the world start to trust in Bitcoin, it might become one of the most popular choices for online payments. As of May 2018, only two percent of Americans owned Bitcoin, but 26 percent said they may buy it in the future.
