Hello friends, In today’s article, we see how Bitcoin’s prices increase in the past, what are the reasons behind that, and most important question, if Is there any chance bitcoin prices goes up in the future. so let’s see them one by one.
How bitcoin’s prices increase:-
so, friends, anything product price depends on the supply and demand of that product.
Let’s talk about the supply of Bitcoin
We all know that only 21 million bitcoin, can be created up to 2140.
Supply-side of Bitcoin:-How Bitcoin’s Prices Increases in the Past?
By the time bitcoins supply speed also going down. In the previous 12 years back, every 10 minutes, new 10 bitcoins is created so nowadays, 6.25 bitcoins are created in 10 minutes,
so Slowying block rewards every 4 years is like
- 50 BTC in 2009
- 25 BTC in 2013
- 12.5 BTC in 2017
- 6.25 BTC in 2021
After the 21st century, the supply chain of bitcoin must slow down, so next 4o years only 1 bitcoin is created.
So on we understand that the supply side is limited,
and It was predecided when bitcoin was created, and everything works on a rule.
means, Price increases just because Demand is high.
so now let’s see the demand side
Demand Side of Bitcoin:-
From 2010-to 2014 the demand increased due to publicity ( negative publicity)
Criminals use bitcoin to buy and sell drugs, give murder rewards, and do many other illegal things.
With news, Bitcoin gets publicity. Whatever it is negative?
But people know about this and the bitcoin price is increased.
but from 2010 to 2014, buying bitcoin is difficult for the common man, because, at this time, only know how to buy bitcoin, those people know how to save tax, etc. people only bought the bitcoin, between this period.
post-2014, People getting easier to invest in bitcoin. (How have Bitcoin’s Prices Increases in the Past?)
Because so many application comes and common people easily buy bitcoin.
so bitcoin demand increases, so the price also increases.
so increasing the price of bitcoin, peoples say, Bitcoin is far better than the stocks, and bitcoin give 5 to 10 X return.
People are doing speculation on a bitcoin and demand increases for Bitcoin.
In this process one problem was found, when demand increases at such a speed, the supply is limited. or not increases that speedily.
up to now, that’s much bitcoin is created between 30% of bitcoin is lost. This means people who own bitcoin forgot their private key ( those people don’t know about private keys, read this article about bitcoin story).
Another thing is, that those people have the Bitcoin they don’t want to sell, and they say I am holding it.
Bitcoin is very slowly created.
so in short say, 30% of bitcoin is lost, other people keep holding and slowly bitcoin is created, and people need bitcoin to buy for speculation for that things. (How Bitcoin’s Prices Increases in the Past?)
Bitcoin prices go higher.
for this purpose, the bitcoin price may go to $100,000 or $1,000,000. or maybe the bitcoin price goes zero if the bitcoin price is going down. this depends on the people’s thinking.
so the conclusion of the article is Bitcoin’s price is going up just because of demand.
in the next article, we see whether Is bitcoin a currency or An Investment.
so this is all about how bitcoin prices go up.
