Bitcoin price


We closed yesterday, 2 September 2020, at a price of $11,414.03 – with a daily high of $11,964.82 and a low of $11,290.79.


That’s down from $11,970.48 the day before. The closing price on the same day last year was 10,346.76.


We’re 43.19% below bitcoin‘s all-time high of $20,089 (17 December 2017).


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


95.5% of all days since 2013-04-28.


Bitcoin volume


The volume traded yesterday was $28,037,405,299 – up from $27,311,555,343 the day before.


Market capitalisation


Bitcoin’s market capitalisation as of yesterday was $210,909,793,681, up from $221,181,001,607 the day before. To put that into context, Jeff Bezos’s net worth is $196,000,000,000, which means he could only buy 92.93% of all Bitcoin. You can’t have everything, Jeff!


Fear and Greed Index


We’re still up there in Extreme Greed, down 4 points from 83 yesterday to 79. August was characterised by greed, and we’ve never seen a whole month up in this area – will the run continue through 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.



Bitcoin’s market dominance


Bitcoin's market dominance stands at 59.85. Its lowest recorded dominance was 37.09 on 8 January, 2018.


Relative Strength Index (RSI)


The daily RSI is currently 47.75. 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.


Resistance and support
