Bitcoin price


We closed yesterday, 6 September, 2020, at a price of $10,280.35 – with a daily high of $10,353.93 and a low of $10,056.89.


On the same day last year, one bitcoin would have cost you $10,353.30.


We’re 48.83% below bitcoin‘s all-time high of $20,089 (17 December 2017).


As of today, buying bitcoin has been profitable for...


92.3% of all days since 2013-04-28.


Bitcoin volume


The volume traded yesterday was $37,071,460,174 – up from $44,916,565,292 the day before. Yesterday’s was the highest daily trading volume since 15 May.


Market capitalisation


Bitcoin’s market capitalisation as of yesterday was $189,997,214,393, up from $187,940,141,276 the day before. To put that into context, car manufacturer Toyota’s market cap is $188.581 billion. Vroom.


Fear and Greed Index


We’re still in the Fear zone at 41, where we were all weekend. We didn’t really drop out of Extreme Greed in August – will fear characterise September in the same way?


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’.

The daily RSI is currently 36.10. 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.
