Bitcoin, the leading cryptocurrency that attracted attention with its rise exceeding $ 35,000 last week, turned 15 years old.
Bitcoin's whitepaper was created 15 years ago by an anonymous person named Satashi Nakamoto and was released to the market under the name “Bitcoin P2P e-cash Paper”. Blockchain technology came to light with Bitcoin.
In Bitcoin's white paper, its revolutionary use, its profound impact on the financial system, and its structure that is completely separated from traditional financial institutions were explained in detail.
Considered one of the greatest inventions after money, Bitcoin was only $0.0008 when it was launched on January 3, 2009.
BTC, which has gradually gained value since 2009, is currently at $ 34,000.
Although Bitcoin, the leading cryptocurrency, was perceived as a threat by traditional financial institutions when it was first released, it has become the focus of technology and the future over the years.
With the growing adoption rate by the growing cryptocurrency community and investors, and the upcoming halving, crypto analysts state that BTC could experience a major rally. At this point, there are different price predictions for BTC.
Important names in the cryptocurrency market did not leave Bitcoin alone on its birthday. At this point, Tether CEO Paolo Ardoino celebrated BTC's birthday.
Happy #bitcoin whitepaper birthday! 🎃
