Although, Bitcoin was seen as one of the hi-tech trends, as well as the darling of criminals,in some way it has been able to stay here for already eleven years. Nowadays, it is a complete fledged asset, being ingrained in the international financial system.
Over a decade later, 85% of Bitcoin’s supply has been mined, leaving only 3.15 million BTC left. However, its white paper’s author remains as impenetrable as ever.
