Yesterday marked the 13th birthday of the Bitcoin (BTC) whitepaper, a monumental moment in the history of cryptocurrency (and the world).
The white paper arrived in the inboxes of a cryptography mailing list hosted by Metzdow at around 2:00 p.m. Eastern Time. In the email maintained by the Nakamato Institute, the pseudonymous creator of Bitcoin, Satoshi Nakamoto, wrote, “I have been working on a new electronic money system that is completely peer-to-peer, with no trusted third parties.”
The rest, as they say, is history.
Bitcoin was officially launched on January 3, 2009. Today Bitcoin has hundreds of millions of users worldwide. The cryptocurrency markets also seem to be in a celebratory mood. Bitcoin itself is up two percent to just over £ 62,000 in the past 24 hours, while Ethereum is also up 1.5 percent to just over $ 4,300. Solana (SOL) and Shiba (SHIB) are the big winners of the day, both up around 11 percent since yesterday morning.
Looking ahead to the week ahead, Wednesday’s Fed meeting is widely expected to see policymakers announce plans to cut back $ 120 billion in monthly security purchases as part of measures to protect the economy from 18 months from COVID were introduced.
The measures are attributed to an increased willingness to take risks on the financial markets. On Thursday, the Bank of England will also make a decision on interest rates, with an expected hike amid rising inflation.

Convince your Nan: Soundbite of the day
“Double spending is avoided with a peer-to-peer network. No mint or other trustworthy parties. Participants can be anonymous. New coins are made from hashcash style proof of work. The proof-of-work for the new generation of coins also supplies the network with electricity to prevent double spending. ”
Satoshi Nakamoto, Bitcoin founder
What they said yesterday
El Salvador made Bitcoin legal tender 54 days ago.
More citizens now have Bitcoin wallets than traditional bank accounts, and for the first time in their lives their purchasing power has increased by more than 30%.
This is a fascinating experiment.

That idea grew into a $ 1 trillion network that is used by more than 100 million people around the world.
