Sesterce Weekly Roundup # 06 (Week 06, 2022)
This week in Crypto history: Bitcoin reaches $50K for the first time.
Implemented as open-source code and released on January 3rd, 2009, the first transaction was 10 BTC sent from Satoshi Nakamoto to the late Hal Finney on February 12th, 2009. The world has never been the same since.
On 16 February 2021 Bitcoin price reached new all-time high of $50,000.
“I do think Bitcoin is the first [encrypted money] that has the potential to do something like change the world.”
Peter Thiel, Co-Founder of Paypal
This Week in the Markets:
Following up on last week’s recap, we want to see $40K hold or we’ll likely revisit lower levels in our shaded area below. There is increasing pressure on a macro perspective that could trigger a dump. #Bitcoin is very dependent on the stock markets’ next move.
Max Price : $45,563
Min Price: $42,089

Does the downsizing of transistors increase chips performance ?
Today the Bitcoin is mined with specific electronic devices dedicated only for this task, called ASIC. To have better performances and to have more chances in finding a block, ASICs have become inescapable, whereas processors (CPU), graphic processor units (GPU) and even ASICs which are not of the last generation are unusable.
