All information is correct as of 10.00am BST.


Bitcoin price


We closed yesterday, 16 September, 2020, at a price of $10,974.90 – with a daily high of $11,100.12 and a low of $10,704.88.


That’s up from a closing price of $10,796.95 the day before. On the same day last year, one bitcoin would have set you back a cool $10,276.79. That’s a 6.8% increase year-on-year.


We’re 45.37% below bitcoin‘s all-time high of $20,089 (17 December 2017).


Bitcoin volume


The volume traded yesterday was $30,769,986,455 – down from $32,509,451,925 the day before. That’s the lowest daily volume since 9 September 2020.


Market capitalisation


Bitcoin’s market capitalisation as of yesterday was $202,942,925,722, up from $199,641,896,762 the day before. To put that into context, Jeff Bezos is again worth $185.1 billion after tech stocks plunged recently. So again, he could only buy 91% of all bitcoin. Sucks to be you, Jeff.


Fear and Greed Index


With more upwards price action, sentiment is up again from 43 to 48 – its highest level since 3 September.


Extreme fear can be a sign that investors are too worried, which could be a buying opportunity. When Investors are getting too greedy, that means the market may be due for a correction.



Global In/Out of the money


For any address with a balance of tokens, ITB identifies the average price (cost) at which those tokens were purchased and compares it with the current price. If the current price is higher than average cost, address is ‘In the Money’. If the current price is lower than the average cost, the address is ‘Out of the Money’.

Bitcoin’s market dominance


Bitcoin's market dominance stands at 60.85. Its lowest recorded dominance was 37.09 on 8 January, 2018.


Relative Strength Index (RSI)


The daily RSI is currently 50.76. Values of 70 or above indicate that an asset is becoming overbought and may be primed for a trend reversal or experience correction in price – an RSI reading of 30 or below indicates an oversold or undervalued condition.
