Bitcoin Price News

The price of Bitcoin (BTC) can refer to either the energy cost of maintaining and securing the Bitcoin network through mining or the market value of BTC at a particular moment or over the course of time. Most of the discourse tends to surround the latter. 

Bitcoin is a radically market-driven asset that is not backed by any commodity or central authority. As such, Bitcoin price movements tend to be volatile. Bitcoin’s price today will be different from Bitcoin’s price tomorrow. Ultimately, the price of Bitcoin is the result of the combined activities of a global community of stakeholders including miners, traders and consumers. 

There are various theories on how the market values (or ought to value) the price of BTC, from the supply-based pricing model, which necessitates increasing demand for value to increase, or the efficient-markets hypothesis (EMH), which asserts an ultraefficient, omnipotent marketplace that has already factored in the necessary information, to the stock-to-flow (STF) model, which measures an asset’s scarcity by tracking the ratio between current supply and annual production rate. This last model has attracted many in the BTC community for its thorough analysis and incredibly bullish sentiment.
