Bitcoin Stats of Today

Bitcoin stats of today

Numbers always tell us a story, don’t they? They are not just for statisticians and data analysts. They are for everybody – including you – if you only knew where to look and what you’re looking at. And once you get that sorted, numbers can reveal layers of information you didn’t know existed. 


Bitcoin is no different. By studying the key numbers and Bitcoin stats today, you can understand this cryptocurrency a bit more clearly. But where can you find the relevant Bitcoin statistics today? Well, you don’t have to look far, because we’ve compiled the most relevant details for you right here. 

How many Bitcoins exist today?

Many Bitcoin investors hold the digital currency in fractions. However, although fractional holding is allowed, it is still possible to add up all the fractionally and wholly held Bitcoins to arrive at the total number of BTC in existence today.


And when we do that, we get 18,895,575 BTC.*


That’s right. We now have a whopping 18+ million Bitcoins around today. And with the cryptocurrency sector gaining popularity like it is, the BTC count is only likely to go upward.

What is the total market value of all currently existing Bitcoin?

This is another key Bitcoin stat that you’ll need to know. The total market value is essentially the market capitalization of the currency. In simple terms, it is the total market value of all the Bitcoins existing today. You can calculate the total market value using a simple formula. Check it out below.


Total market value = Price per Bitcoin x Total number of Bitcoins


So, as the price per BTC fluctuates, so does the total market value of all the currently existing Bitcoins. Similarly, when more Bitcoins are mined, the total market value also increases accordingly. All in all, this is one of the more volatile Bitcoin statistics out there. 


Currently, the total market value of Bitcoins is over $935 billion!

Bitcoin price history charts

Ever since it was first introduced, the price of Bitcoin has always been quite volatile. Here is a quick look at some of the key price points.
