1 Satoshi Is Now Worth More Than 7 National Currencies

Believe it or not, the smallest denomination of Bitcoin is already worth more than quite a few national currencies. This is despite the fact that Bitcoin’s price is approximately 40% below its all-time high.

1 Satoshi Is Worth More Than These Fiat Currencies

The debate regarding Bitcoin’s intrinsic value has been going on for quite a while. Regardless of which side you’re on, popular cryptocurrency trader Rhythm has brought up a rather interesting point. 

He points out that the smallest denomination of Bitcoin, one Satoshi, is now worth more than some national currencies. 

At the time of his tweet, 0.00000001 BTC was worth more than:

  • 1 Iranian rial
  • 1 Vietnamese dong
  • 1 Indonesian rupiah
  • 1 Guinean franc
  • 1 Sierra Leonean leone
  • 1 Laotian kip
  • 1 Uzbekistani som

The last few days have been nothing but interesting for Bitcoin. The cryptocurrency’s price jumped from $9,800 to around $14,000, only to drop violently again to about $10,800. However, since the correction, Bitcoin is seemingly recovering, marking a 2% gain over the past 24 hours. The cryptocurrency is now trading at around $12,000 and holds a market cap of around $215 billion. 

Bitcoin’s Bigger Than Canada’s Base Money

In the same vein, another interesting chart was recently published examining the monetary bases of various countries throughout the world. 

As it turns out, the countries with the biggest monetary bases are Japan, China, the United States, the United Kingdom, Switzerland, India, Russia, and the nations comprising the Eurozone. This is where Bitcoin steps into the picture with its current $215 billion market cap. 

That makes Bitcoin bigger than the monetary bases of countries such as Canada, Brazil, Australia, Mexico, and Sweden.

However, it’s important to note that a country’s monetary base is measured in terms of the overall amount of currency in circulation or which is held in commercial deposits in its central bank. Consequently, it excludes the country’s gold reserves.
