Title: 1 in a million (updated for 2018-1)
Post by: Pursuer on February 15, 2017, 06:24:15 AM
being one in a million is one of those interesting topics in bitcoin if you ask me. we all know that there will only be 21 million maximum bitcoins available (ignoring the number of coins lost).

so if you have 21 bitcoins you can be one in a million.

now we all know there are 7.5 billion people in the whole world and there is a very limited supply of bitcoin available.

The following is the cost of being 1 in a million throughout the past years.
* bubbles are ignored and price is average

Year|21BTC cost
2008-2010|Practically free!
2010|$3.7
2011|$84
2012|$188
2013|$2,200
2014|$9,030
2015|$5,670
2016|$12,117
2017|$21,210 Today's price (2017-2)

when you look at things like that, they seem pretty ridiculous that once you could be 1 in a million with only 3 bucks but today you have to pay 21 grand to be 1 in a million


The 6 months updates:
Date|21BTC cost
2017-6|$50,400
2018-1|$294,000
2018-6|$???

I wish i started mining and bying bitcoins back in 2010 like the early adopters.
I was pretty stupid at that time. >:(
I don`t know what`s the point of this "research"?Do you have 21 btc?
I will never have 21 bitcoins.

I think the cost of bitcoin at the All Time high in late 2013 and early 2014 is as high as now, about $1000/BTC.

It's the potential of the bitcoin as well as the magic of time. Those who adopted bitcoin in the early phase (2008 to 2012) have received multifold returns on their investments however I personally believe that we are still in early phase and bitcoin is yet to show it's real potential and we will see it over the time. In next 10 years, bitcoin will have a good noticeable user base as compared to that of other payment processors.

If you say you'll never have 21 bitcoins, you're right...you never will.

Where's your confidence?

Don't get stuck in the past! Think about where we are today and how lucky you'll be in 5 or 10 years that you knew about bitcoin today. What can you save in a month? Take that money and buy bitcoin. Fractions every moth add up to a whole in surprisingly quick time. Just make it automatic and stop discouraging yourself!

the price was about the same as today for a short time back in 2013 but that was a fake pump leading to a "bubble" in bitcoin. and bubbles are not real prices and will pop as we saw it afterwards.

I will never have 21 bitcoins.

nobody said you should have 21 bitcoin!
have whatever amount you can have, whether it is 21BTC or 0.21BTC price is rising overtime anyways!

I will never have 21 bitcoins.

When I watching this list that OP presented us I wish I started mining, buying, I would even claim bitcoins from faucets back in 2010. I can`t say I was stupid back then, I just wasn`t aware of bitcoin in that time even I was very active on internet.
Back then was much easier to make 21 btc, now its harder but its not impossible I think. I wonder how will this list look like for 10 years, when I watch this list I have a feeling that bitcoin can really go to the sky in next 10 years. Thanks for this awesome list and reminder my friend.

i love people who gives words of encouragement not some huge words of drawback that goes around with other people, but also, my friend it is only time that tells if u are really sure to make up to or more than 21 bitcoins, to me i have not made 1 bitcoin yet, but......

People are now going to wish that they can turn back time when Bitcoin is free so hey can get as many as possible,but this is not possible anymore and now people in the altcoin section are still stuck,searching for the next big thing in the crypto currency.

The point of this research only is to get the opinion's of the individuals in this forum. Though like you it was regrettable to me way back 2014 I think when bitcoin downfall at 200$, I supposed to buy that time but because being negative I didn't listen to friend advice to buy bitcoin, but I never buy any of it even a single satoshi. But its almost past, so now I saved bitcoin every time I earn at the end of the day.  :)

Many people wish they could turn back time but we know this is not possible. So, what is don is done, there is no use in regret. Instead we should look into future and see how to profit the most from the current situation and make plans for future. Acumulate coins, trade them, invest them but don't expect the mirracle. With Bitcoins you should also invest your time and knowledge and nothing doesn't fall out of the sky.

You are right theres no point on regretting as of these days since we cant really go back in the past and the feeling of regretting is really there but we cant do anything about it and as you said we should focus now and just do the normal saving up of bitcoin because theres still a future on bitcoin.

One in a million as OP pointed out is usually about having the amount out of the total supply not the current supply. currently it is 16+ million coins and it is rising by about 1800 bitcoins every day. so if you want to consider the current available supply you need to increase the amount you hodl every day.

It's a great achievement to become one in a million in Bitcoin. There are approximately 15 mln dollar millionaires on Earth. So if you are one in a million in Bitcoin it's 15 times cooler than to be a dollar millionaire  ;)

This just shows the potential of bitcoin, as we can see its growing exponentially and I don't expect it will stop. Now, unfortunately, not 1 in a million and probably will never be if bitcoin prices keep on rising like this.

I guess most of us wish they bought Bitcoins in 2008-2010..... I didn't even care that much about investments at the time.. But today it shouldn't be late either! If the price of 21BTC grew by this much from year to year.. It should mean that in the next years it can go even more above! :)

It will just cost you more as time pass by. But for me, it is not important to belong to that 1 in a million group. It is more important for me to get as much bitcoin as I have before the price becomes too high to avail a bitcoin.


Title: Re: 1 in a million
Post by: Mometaskers on February 15, 2017, 01:46:11 PM
Unfortunately it's unlikely the price is ever going down to even just double of its lowest. Sadly I only learned about bitcoin last December. So yeah, sucks for me. 21 bitcoins is still something to aspire to but I find it unlikely for me. I'd probably need to work my ass off 24/7 hours to save up that much in 5 years. Minimum monthly wage here is around 1/5 of a bitcoin.

For us late adopters, we probably just need to spare a part of our monthly earnings and have it converted to btc. Sure, we'd be buying less and less each month as the price rises but at least whatever small amount we got would be worth much more after a year.

Time can really tell the difference if something of someone has progress, well bitcoin came in an unexpected price that you would not imagine that it would be this big right now, well I think the time has a big influence and the value of bitcoin is this imaginably big right now well I can say bitcoin is a 1 in a million Cryptocurrency that stood to the test of time!

That is a nice way to put things in perspective.
I didn't think that owning 21bitcoins would be a one in a million sort of thing.
I got close to that at one time last year but then some bad investments caused me to not get there. Just a few bitcoins short.
But if I knew it was a one in a million to own that amount I would be tried harder to get to the amount needed to be able to feel that special. ;D

This is simply great for bitcoin. we have all been hearing about the low prices such as $1, $0.05, etc but it is a bit hard right now to imagine that 21BTC was worth $3.7 once :O

i have been trying so hard to make more profit and invest more and more to reach the 21BTC for a couple of years now but it has been a hard thing and it is getting harder every day.

It is really ridiculous. I guess you are just inventing your own price for bitcoin, because your price for each year to bitcoin since it have started is very far from the real price that it have hit since it have started way back then. If I am not mistaken, the highest price that bitcoin's have reached was $1200, and not $21,210, I wish it would come true this year, but it is too good to be true, but who knows right.

Maybe this price that you have mentioned will fluctuate next year, or next next year, or in the near future. Let's just continue on using and supporting bitcoin until this thing happen, let's just hold it for now and wait for the right time. :)

You either don't score highly for reading comprehension, or for actual comprehension!
There are 21 million potential Bitcoins. To own 1 millionth of them, you need to own 21 Bitcoins. The cost of 21 Bitcoins is (was when he posted)  $21,210.

No prices were made up.

Well if it is too much for us to be one in a million, we can always strive for the lesser title like 1 in 21 million :)  It is still better than 1 in a billion.

Anyway i do not have regret to know Bitcoin late, it is not anyones fault and beside I entered Bitcoin community after the bubble of 2013 burst so it is still at $1000, and then take a hiatus at 2015 when bitcoin is at its low.  Then came back when it is going up somewhere in the early 2nd quarter of 2016.  It is not late to acquire at least 1 whole BTC so that even if we are not 1 in a million, we can be 1 in 21 million :)

I think the cost of bitcoin at the All Time high in late 2013 and early 2014 is as high as now, about $1000/BTC.

It is $1200 actually. I don't know how OP said that bitcoin's price have and will hit this prices that he have mentioned for 2017 and the rest. It would be nice if he said that "This will be the prediction of the bitcoin's price this 2017 and to the next years", I guess this would be more believable than what he have said.

Right now, the highest prediction for bitcoin is $1500, I don't know if bitcoin will really PUMP to this price, but let's all hope that it will, for us to get a huge profit, and for our being patient to be worthy.

I guess the OP is trying to highlight how difficult it is to predict the future and how valuable it is.

Could we now predict what the future price of bitcoin? I guess we can't as most people think the price will be $1010, and that's why this is the current price.

I will never have 21 bitcoins.
I also regret I didn't buy couple coins when I've just joined to bitcoin. That was last year ant the price was around 350-400$ per 1 BTC. But I think to make 21 bitcoins is not so big deal. I have heard that there is a company that pays year bonuses to it's workers in bitcoins and there are many options to make bitcoins basically. But at the same time everything in the economy should circle to stay fresh and high. If a million people will decide to start to save bitcoins till 21 point to be one in a million - it's gonna be collapse, for bitcoin for sure.

And which company would that be to pay their employees bonuses in bitcoin?
One of the big tech giants maybe? IBM, Amazon, Apple or any other one that doesn't accept bitcoin as a form of payment. This is usually how these big companies operate by giving their employees things that they do not or can not use. Just look at all those employee giveaways for e.of the.year with massages or hairstylist gift cards. They don't care about those things. Have you ever heard a company giving their employees gold bars for their year end bonuses or e.of the.year awards? Never cause they value those things higher than they do this cryptocurrency they usually do not have the knowledge to know what to do with in the first place.

Don't forget the hoarders. There are a few people who have over 100,000. Chuck in lost coins too and realistically you might only need 3-5 BTC to be one in a million. A totally pointless stat but a bit of fun all the same.

Getting track of the entrance price for 21 BTC is an excellent statistic. As we see, the more you wait, the more expensive being inside the 1 million club becomes. In a couple of years, the entrance will be of 6 figures.

21 BTC holders will be rich, there's just no other outcome. 1 million people (actually way less considering all the lost BTC) is a TINY amount of people. Sooner or later 21 BTC holder will be rich as fuck and the people that had an opportunity to get in such a position will regret for life if they didn't buy them.

it would be a feat, BUT an expensive one right now, with it valuing 21k's it would be expensive for anyone to purchase it unless you consider it a serious investment, Fun when seeing forum posts from 2010 and before when a BTC was so inexpensive "maybe like dogecoins now, lol"
Great to see the economy of BTC reaching such high feats, particularly for the ones who were here from the beginning.

But past will help you to predict the future. Being a holder of millionth of bitcoin must be a privileged experience, I have not enjoyed it.
Is there any theory that holding 21 bitcoins is more than enough for our rest of life to solve all financial needs ? Even if it is so, no one will be able to predict the exact time frame that to happen.

One in a million as OP pointed out is usually about having the amount out of the total supply not the current supply. currently it is 16+ million coins and it is rising by about 1800 bitcoins every day. so if you want to consider the current available supply you need to increase the amount you hodl every day.

OP have included this part --> (ignoring the number of coins lost) on purpose. The statement will be even stronger if you factor in the lost coins,

but nobody knows how many coins are lost, so for that reason he has left that out. It is still a huge accomplishment if you can acquire the 21

bitcoins are become part of a small group of people who has done that.  ;)

Not only that, but the fact that, logically, and statistically, more and more coins will keep getting lost in the crypto void forever. Mistakes happen, mistakes are unavoidable. People will keep losing their hard drives due malfunction, they will keep losing their cold wallets in fires/whatever, they will keep forgetting password... never ending possibilities to fuck up, which is good news for the ones that don't.

I would estimate that at least 1 million coins are lost forever already, and not including satoshis coins.

Then, add in the deflation rate due the constantly lost coins.

The result: In 10 to 20 years 21 BTC holders will be inflation adjusted USD millionaires.

when you look at things like that, they seem pretty ridiculous that once you could be 1 in a million with only 3 bucks but today you have to pay 21 grand to be 1 in a million

Who knows lamenting behind $21k today is restricting us to be one in million of tomorrow having 21 BTC worth $21m. :D
 Bitcoin is most volatile investment I have ever seen. Anything can happen. By the way, nice study.

I do not know the extra benefits of having 21 BTC why you are telling them lucky.  It is not thru luck but effort and belief in Bitcoin that they hold more than that 21 BTC.  We can also strive for it,  let us just save part of the BTC we earned from our works and profits.  I can say it would be nice if we can be one of those 1 million who have 21 BTC in stash.

It's still possible to reach the 21 bitcoin dream with hard work and dedication. The mere fact that you know about bitcoin already, puts you before a lot of people that will come later. So use your knowledge to keep hustling for more bitcoin. Work in mcdonalds if you need to to buy extra bitcoin. Defeat is not an option, we must work hard to reach the 21 btc dream, otherwise will always regret not getting up to 21 when it was still possible.

Yes, Anything is possible if we just have great dedication or determination then if we have that, we will have a great amount of eagerness to do the things that we seem hard for us to do and try the things that we didn't tried. If you can't earn that 21 btc here in forum then buy that 21 btc, how? work outside the internet and find part time job which offers fair amount and then after a few weeks, buy bitcoin piece by piece then somehow you were be able to build that 21 btc dream.

No matter how hard people work, for a lot people here it's simply impossible to own that many coins. Especially if you have to start from scratch. At current levels a lot people will find themselves struggle to even collect 1 whole Bitcoin, and as years go by where the price continues to increase, it will only become more difficult. That's why it's important to just focus on collecting and buying what you can afford. Question to you, how far are you in reaching 21 BTC?

Because there is a consideration of imaginary club which measures the eligibility criteria as holding one in millionth of total bitcoins. Being one person out of millions would be a privileged one in my opinion too when considering the total worlds populations of 7 billions. But only future bitcoin prices will decide whether they are lucky or not.

Those early adopters got chances to join club of 100/1000 or even into 10. In future people may consider a person to join a 10 million club. So, as of now it is still an achievable milestone yet has some prestigious considerations.

Bitcoin's uptick is impressive.

Many wish they bought bitcoins when they were cheap.

Sometimes its good to remember there are other currencies and opportunities out there which offer similar success to early adopters of btc.

Example -- the zimbabwe dollar had a good run awhile ago.

You only need 0.021BTC to be.. 1 in a BILLION!!  ;D

1 million people having 21BTC each is 21,000,000 total (max number of coins available) hence 1 in a million. it is also sometimes called "a Million Club"
having 1BTC today, is great but it is not 1 in a million.

Example -- the zimbabwe dollar had a good run awhile ago.

there are lots of things that have good movements and are good potential investments but not many of them are offering as many features as bitcoin and not many have been rising for 8 years.

p.s. Zimbabwe dollar? seriously :)

being one in a million is one of those interesting topics in bitcoin if you ask me. we all know that there will only be 21 million maximum bitcoins available (ignoring the number of coins lost).

so if you have 21 bitcoins you can be one in a million.

now we all know there are 7.5 billion people in the whole world and there is a very limited supply of bitcoin available.

The following is the cost of being 1 in a million throughout the past years.
* bubbles are ignored and price is average

Year|21BTC cost
2008-2010|Practically free!
2010|$3.7
2011|$84
2012|$188
2013|$2,200
2014|$9,030
2015|$5,670
2016|$12,117
2017|$21,210 Today's price

when you look at things like that, they seem pretty ridiculous that once you could be 1 in a million with only 3 bucks but today you have to pay 21 grand to be 1 in a million

Interesting facts and figures by op here. I think most of us here buy and sell Bitcoins so i feel it shall always be rotating around which is best for business. What if people were actually just to hold their coins forever and 21 million coins are mined, which would end the Bitcoin craze, cause if people just would not sell how will it free flow. Again at such a huge price who would buy it. I feel people should keep on rotating the coins, rather than hoard them so the balance of supply and demand works better. But out of the 7.5 billion people how many are actually involved in Bitcoin is really a question that needs to be figured. Not all have opened thier arms for Bitcoins just yet. I feel the supply and demand should be maainted for the healthy growth of Bitcoins. Also the ones to actually make money are the ones who brought it at 10 cents and at low levels. Right now thw price is shooting off the roof.

Let's say 21 BTC is same like 21 million dollars, it means 1 BTC = 1 million dollars. What if in 2027, because of inflation this thing is happen. Is it good for bitcoin ecosystem? I mean, okay now everybody want that price.
But are you sure if that is a good thing? I don't think so, because everythings need balance.

I don`t know what`s the point of this "research"?Do you have 21 btc?
I will never have 21 bitcoins.

I may have said it before but I will say it again.
Bitcoin launch was covered by the news on television where I live.
I watched, and scoffed at the idea that I would mine a currency worth absolutely nothing.
Strangely, its one the few days of my life I remember.

I wouldn't mind so much if I was an average Joe, but I assumed I was pretty much top of my game in online marketing at the time.

Bitcoin went right over my head!

Ive kicked myself many times at this obvious 'message from the universe'.

Some things are just not meant to be, hence I still havnt got a small urn to urinate in to this day :D

But there is more to life than being a millionaire I guess ....  :-\

Its a global currency, and with 7.5 Billion people in the world...
If you own a 1/4 of a Bitcoin, you are still more than one in a million. And in the minority compared to Gold Ownership.

Any amount of Bitcoin puts you in an exclusive club.

We maybe not one in a million today but we can be one in the future. The key is not to give up and constant saving of your coins and eventually we can be one in a million in the future. But if we keep on converting our bitcoins to fiat currency and we dont save it then we will lost that opportunity. Me as a bitcoin user, there is no longer a chance for me to become a one in a million since my bitcoins are essential to provide the needs of my family on a daily basis.

People are now going to wish that they can turn back time when Bitcoin is free so hey can get as many as possible,but this is not possible anymore and now people in the altcoin section are still stuck,searching for the next big thing in the crypto currency.

I also wish I could turn back the time when my friend was persuading me to do bitcoin so that I could have a source of money, but I didn't listen to him that day, and now, I am regretting it, and he said to me "You don't need to regret it anymore, because it is in the past, what important is you are now earning bitcoin, and you are lucky because other people don't know about it" and that's what enlightens me.

So there is no reason for us anymore to regret what we did in the past, if we ignored bitcoin before, then it is not too late to pay attention on it right now, let's just keep on supporting it, because having bitcoin in our life is really awesome.

No goverment, no institution, no one will allow BTC to get to 100,000$.
They will manipulate it like they have done with Gold prices.
BTC will reach $2000 or more at the end of 2017 and for the next couple of years will rise about 150%, after that the price will become steady, decline or rise very little. I don't see past 10,000$ within the decade.

I could reach that amount by just waiting for massive dumps and then to buy these dips, but it's a pointless/meaningless purpose to chase 21BTC.

It's an unrealistic target for the far majority of the people here as well. At this point reaching 1BTC for long term hodling purposes should be a doable goal.

Anything you manage to collect more than this 1BTC will play out in your favor in the long term. Never force yourself to achieve something that simply isn't in your range.

So was the $1k price tag. It means a $50k price, which doesn't look really impossible looking at the fact that.. Bitcoin went up from NOTHING to $1k. A million dollars price would look impossible although its probable.. +$10k will probably be reached this/next year.

Well I really think that even if we can not attain that 21 million mark on bitcoin we can still come up with a good profit with it and that is why there are so many people that are attaining such feats in earning with it and some are just enjoying the life that they have with bitcoin and I think miners have a great experience with bitcoin right now and some investors really looking forward in attaining a good impact because the value is still going straight up!

Agreed, you just cannot tell what will happen month to month with bitcoin but one thing is for sure, it will be around for a long time whether the price drops or the price goes up, bitcoin will still exist.

now we all know there are 7.5 billion people in the whole world and there is a very limited supply of bitcoin available.
Total number of people living on earth is a bit misleading data when you try to present scarcity of bitcoin.

We know that large part of the world's population is living in poverty or has no internet access.

There is no way these people would ever be able to purchase or own bitcoin.

So, to present how bitcoin could spread, wouldn't it be more accurate base your calculation/estimation on number of people in the world  with the the Internet access?

The newest data (from 2015), when the International Telecommunication Union estimated that we have about 3.2 billion people using Internet.

That is true, I totally agree, and of those 7.5 Billion we can assume that many are too young to buy bitcoin!
However, if we assume that the world has 1 Billion interested parties, then 21 Million will still need to go a long way to satisfying demand.

Soon we will have 1 btc cost $20k

That is a nice calculation and I might believe it.  ;D

what is there not to believe!!
i don't see OP making any prediction about the future it is just a history of price and it is showing how bitcoin price has gone up in the past 8 years. something that was worth a couple of US cents is not worth 1200+ US dollar.
and those of us who got in early are winners. some are winning more because they got in when it was 10 cents and some are winning less since they got in when price was $200.

you have to decide which group you want to belong to in 10 years.

bitcoin is the best thing I've ever had. I never predict that the price would be so high. if I remember the first time I knew bitcoin in 2014, the price was great, but now it's very great. I wish I could earn more coins and hold it.

21BTC today worth about 20,000$ aprox.
Why envy him? It isn't THAT big amount to have.

Dude you are not putting things into proper perspective. Who the fuck can nowadays afford a $20,000 investment into an high risk asset like bitcoin?

The people that know about bitcoin a minority

The people that own any bitcoin are an even smaller minority

The people that own at least 1BTC are an ever smaller minority

The people that own at least 21BTC are an ever smaller minority....

etc

What I mean is, 21BTC is an investment that very, very, very few people have nowadays. Most people don't have $20,000 on their bank account, let alone on bitcoin. Look at the stats.

it is not about investing right now which would cost you more than 20K dollars. it is about investing slowly and what you can when price was low. for example if that person bought at $100 that could have been 2K dollars and have the amount of bitcoin and hodl it to make the profit today.
and having 2K worth of bitcoin today (~2BTC) can mean having 20K dollars tomorrow.

being one in a million is one of those interesting topics in bitcoin if you ask me. we all know that there will only be 21 million maximum bitcoins available (ignoring the number of coins lost).

so if you have 21 bitcoins you can be one in a million.

now we all know there are 7.5 billion people in the whole world and there is a very limited supply of bitcoin available.

The following is the cost of being 1 in a million throughout the past years.
* bubbles are ignored and price is average

Year|21BTC cost
2008-2010|Practically free!
2010|$3.7
2011|$84
2012|$188
2013|$2,200
2014|$9,030
2015|$5,670
2016|$12,117
2017|$21,210 Today's price

when you look at things like that, they seem pretty ridiculous that once you could be 1 in a million with only 3 bucks but today you have to pay 21 grand to be 1 in a million

Maybe the next question is, "what will be the future price of bitcoin?" It is easy to predict the increase, but it is very hard to make an approximate price prediction. Even regression models is not reliable.

The future price is expected to stand above $1000. The price prediction cannot be made approximately, because everything happens without any notification. Also unexpected reality happens with bitcoin.

I wish i started mining and bying bitcoins back in 2010 like the early adopters.
I was pretty stupid at that time. >:(
I don`t know what`s the point of this "research"?Do you have 21 btc?
I will never have 21 bitcoins.

When I watching this list that OP presented us I wish I started mining, buying, I would even claim bitcoins from faucets back in 2010. I can`t say I was stupid back then, I just wasn`t aware of bitcoin in that time even I was very active on internet.
Back then was much easier to make 21 btc, now its harder but its not impossible I think. I wonder how will this list look like for 10 years, when I watch this list I have a feeling that bitcoin can really go to the sky in next 10 years. Thanks for this awesome list and reminder my friend.

There is no reason to say "I wish" because what is important is we know bitcoin in all of the people living in this world, we are lucky because we are earning bitcoin right now, compare to those people out there who only know fiat and nothing more. So, there is no reason to regret what we didn't do in the past, because it is the present that will lead us to mold our future, so, whatever what we are doing right now to earn bitcoin, we must continue on doing it, and no matter how much bitcoin do we have right now, we must save it, and just spend it on the things that we really needed.

Because if we spent our bitcoin just to buy the things that we want, then the next time, we are going to sell what we need to buy something that we want.

If you say you'll never have 21 bitcoins, you're right...you never will.

Where's your confidence?

Don't get stuck in the past! Think about where we are today and how lucky you'll be in 5 or 10 years that you knew about bitcoin today. What can you save in a month? Take that money and buy bitcoin. Fractions every moth add up to a whole in surprisingly quick time. Just make it automatic and stop discouraging yourself!

Yup you are right. We must forget the past and move on. Even me has regrets because Ive heard Bitcoin 3 years ago and do nothing about it because I doubted it and think it has no potential. We may not earn 21 BTC in an instant but keep moving forward. At least save up money monthly and invest it on bitcoin. Im not building illusions I'm just saying what we can do at the meanwhile. We all have regrets but that's how we grow, that's why we learn. Have faith in yourself do the work and believe, negativity will bring you down. Look at the brighter side of the future.

Wow, some interesting stats you have got there.

I'd say that one in a million was really easy to achieve when I first got into bitcoin. I bought like 5 bitcoins for less than $200 at the start of my bitcoin journey, and that was pretty much like 1 in a million I think. It was crazy cheap looking back right now.

It just shows how much we have gone through from the start of bitcoin to right now. We have achieved a lot as a community and the price has risen a lot too to reward those who bought into bitcoin.

If i had the chance to time travel, my top priority would be go back in time and buy 100 PCs and mine all the bitcoins in the world, lol.

That's something interesting to be one in million bitcoin users. Early adopters were more lucky to be the one in million. Now too it's not that late, so planning now to will make people one in million before the 21million coins get mined. Some saving regularly from the day job earning is more than enough to achieve this.

you don't need to worry about being too late yet!
yes obviously you have lost a lot of good opportunities so far to buy cheaper coins but it is not yet late. price is rising and we are not yet at a mass adoption stage.

also i must add, there is no need to have 21 bitcoin, it obviously is so good to have though. having even 1 bitcoin or half a bitcoin is going to be good enough to be involved with bitcoin and the future.

Fast forward to 2017, there are registered companies operating massive scale mining operations. New hardware comes out every year... The difficulty just goes up and up every single day and the network is growing in size.

It's costly to get that 1 in a million coins now which is now under 20 bitcoins. An average worker won't be able to save up in a year for that amount.

Higher price of bitcoin seems like double edge sword for bitcoin, early adopters which most advantaged because they have many bitcoin but right now, who does not have big funds cannot purchase BTC21, be 1 in a million. Furthermore, higher fees for send bitcoin become another problem which people will consider to using fiat money instead of buy bitcoin. In the other words, for me, bitcoin become a commodity/object of investment, not a currency.

well, the whole point is showing only 1 million people can have 21 bitcoin and there would be nothing left for anyone else. and 21BTC is a very small number and paying even 21K for it is still a very small price to pay. you should think of it as buying 10 times cheaper compared to for example 2021.

and besides as I always say and others also mentioned in this topic, you don't have to buy 21 bitcoins, just invest what you can and feel safe with and be 1 in 10 million or so on. but know that every year it is getting more and more late to get in.

Furthermore, higher fees for send bitcoin become another problem which people will consider to using fiat money instead of buy bitcoin. In the other words, for me, bitcoin become a commodity/object of investment, not a currency.

You don't have to own 21 btc to be one in a million. People who own bitcoin is just a few million. And some early adopters already hold thousands of bitcoins and millions are already lost. So even if you own only a few bitcoins there is high chance that you are within the millionth user who possess a whole bitcoin.

People are now going to wish that they can turn back time when Bitcoin is free so hey can get as many as possible,but this is not possible anymore and now people in the altcoin section are still stuck,searching for the next big thing in the crypto currency.

Still, bitcoin era keeps running because now nobody is bothering about the present price.
Because many people are thinking bitcoin is one prestigious coin, which has strong ability to increase the price in the future.
At the same time, many people are searching for another altcoin which can secure its position after bitcoin.

Wow thats a good spot of selling your bitcoin which you have bought on a very low amount and now its the right time to sell.Same as yours i do know about bitcoin for just 2 years ago which is considered as late but still as long we do have chance on earning it on a free way without the need of buying it.

All of that has shown us the strength of bitcoin, it is a potentially huge coin that affects the whole world and can change the world. Nowadays, it is gradually developing and getting better and better, time has shown us that. For those who have used bitcoin from the beginning, they will see its potential, and if they believe in it, then surely they are now rich, they own bitcoin when it only Worth a few hundred dollars, but to the present, its value has doubled, even triple. Really rich, I wish I could know bitcoin sooner.

True. It feels like we have it but later on we knew that it was only just a dream. Well it's really sad to know that, the chance of being a millionaire has been slip away. Imagine believing in bitcoins potential seven years ago and invest at least 500 BTC. That is a great amount now.

You're still lucky because you've bought Bitcoin with a price of less than 300$, many people here don't even reach the moment when Bitcoin still have that price.

Then you are saying that each time there are new users in bitcoin there are a Viewable increase in the value, well maybe there should be an unnoticeable change in the value but in my opinion if that person would earn bitcoin, and by earning it taking the portion of bitcoin into his wallet, well there are some transactions and rotational data being gather to all users and I think that would be the time we would see an increase with the value.

Its never easy to earn 21 btc as very few people would have managed to hold that amount in their wallet and people who are earning bitcoins in different ways would be really struggling to have even 1 full btc in their wallet as earning bitcoin is much more difficult then earning fiat.

That is a big possibility. Since bitcoin's popularity is bursting, there is no doubt about having huge interest in bitcoin. Since bitcoin's value depends on the law of demand and law of supply, having a continuous increase in bitcoin users, the higher the price bitcoin value will become.

I agree that not ever individual will adopt bitcoin since, practically, not all are capable in affording to have bitcoin in their pockets. Maybe they cannot afford a smartphone for a wallet or any device that will serve as their wallet, or maybe they cannot access internet.

All of us should remember that not only bitcoin, but cryptocurrencies are gaining more and more interest from different kind of people from the every place on the planet.
The promises of insane profits and great returns by doing nothing are attracting such a big number of people, that it is just a little bit overwhelming for me. Luckily, big part of this newbies are going to leave bitcoin soon, and the reason will be very simple: they are going to get scammed by some older users, who are trying to exploit all these naive people that want to get their money doubled in a day without any effort.

I dont like the thought that almost everywhere i need to be extremely cautious because of possible scam attempt, but it does one good thing for a bitcoin: it makes newbies disoriented and sometimes even they start to be against the crypto's, so I can acquire more BTC for better price :) looks fine for me haha!

You explain about bitcoin very well, but i lost the chance to make me a million. Because i entered in bitcoin world very late, I know about bitcoin in last 2 years, but i am glad, when i know about bitcoin, than it was $285, and i bought 3 to 4 bitcoins, and now recently i sold them, than you guess who could i make profit from bitcoins.

True. It feels like we have it but later on we knew that it was only just a dream. Well it's really sad to know that, the chance of being a millionaire has been slip away. Imagine believing in bitcoins potential seven years ago and invest at least 500 BTC. That is a great amount now.

You're still lucky because you've bought Bitcoin with a price of less than 300$, many people here don't even reach the moment when Bitcoin still have that price.

I'm one of the people you talked to. I knew about bitcoin 5 months ago, and then it's worth about $ 900. And of course, I only own a very small bitcoin at the moment, it's not enough for me to get a profit from it. Maybe I would get rich if I knew bitcoin when it was only $ 300

Its never too late to invest in bitcoins likewise it is to say it is never late to start trading.well i believe that even in this year only we will be able to see lot of events of price of bitcoins that will attract the traders to invest more in bitcoins.on the other hand to invest only in bitcoins would be foolish,invest in real estate properties.

being one in a million is one of those interesting topics in bitcoin if you ask me. we all know that there will only be 21 million maximum bitcoins available (ignoring the number of coins lost).

so if you have 21 bitcoins you can be one in a million.

now we all know there are 7.5 billion people in the whole world and there is a very limited supply of bitcoin available.

The following is the cost of being 1 in a million throughout the past years.
* bubbles are ignored and price is average

Year|21BTC cost
2008-2010|Practically free!
2010|$3.7
2011|$84
2012|$188
2013|$2,200
2014|$9,030
2015|$5,670
2016|$12,117
2017|$21,210 Today's price

when you look at things like that, they seem pretty ridiculous that once you could be 1 in a million with only 3 bucks but today you have to pay 21 grand to be 1 in a million

The time it takes a new technology to hit mainstream is about 10 years so I guess that is also an example of what the real return is when you invest early it does make a sound argument for some altcoins ^^.
Although Bitcoin still has quite some upside to go.

Great info, and showing  the bitcoin growth through the years. Time really is a great partner in accumulation assets or wealth whether it is digital or in physical form.I think its not too late to invest, some business men are projection bitcoin to even hit at $500,000 dollar.

Well many altcoins are rises but i think they are be still alternatives that can't take the position of bitcoin..
Unless if there are altcoin that their team are  too active they are adopting it so fast..  we are need an altcoin that useful than bitcoin
That we can not transaction problem unlike bitcoin slow transaction when receiving and sending.. and i think merchant and store who accepting altcoin as their payment mode.

If those will happen i am sure they can take the position of bitcoin..
For now better to use altcoin for trading purposes because there are times that the price was increasing fast and sometimes slow. 

About the story of this thread i think i heard bitcoins before 2010 because there is a site that honestly i forgot the name they are giving bitcoin as their payment for  making essay before. that not expecting that the price of bitcoin will increase i was join bitcoin 2015 when the price i think $280+

well they are lucky that their made a good profit in  holding it for a long time and hope they can be still holding it and making more profit..  and be a multi millionaire.

For me if i had that amount of btc and got this $21,210 Today's price
I am already millionaire here..  in my country

I will never have 21 bitcoins.
This post is very useful, it allows to us to see a comparison on the average price as time has passed, in this year alone the amount of money needed to buy those coins has doubled if bitcoin keeps going in this direction it will not be long before it takes an amount of money that is out of the reach of most people in the world.

actually that is a good point and i think it is somewhat true too.
many people have this false way of thinking that since bitcoin went from 0 to a thousand, then an altcoin can to the same too. so they jump in and invest their money in the hopes of making a thousand dollar profit on each coin they buy.
i have to admit that in the early days i also thought like this. there are many interesting projects out there and they get hyped up enough to make you think all kinds of crazy things, but behind the curtains they are all for short term pump and dump and profit.

Well, it's one reason. Of course, most of it is ultimately profit driven. Most money in bitcoin is speculative as well anyway. The majority of a alt coins are scams but to say every alt coin project is a scam is to put your head in the sand.

No, that's totally a false thought, the altcoins are not a fraudulent coin, they have their own foundation and power. That is why the market is constantly operating, and the altcoins are popular, they trade and exchange it continuously. Most of the current altcoins show its strength when it continuously increases over its original value.

Yeah its too high amount to hold and may be not possible for majority of users to have that amount to hold in their wallets by simply earning them as its never easy to earn bitcoins and it requires hard work and great level of efforts so very few people would be having that amount in their wallet for sure.

Yeah, this is true for so many things. Cryptocurrencies are an interesting example because after the sell off a few years ago many people abandoned the idea altogether as a failure. And now bitcoin is at an ATH and now we see alt market caps that surpass the ones from a few years ago.

The other thing to remember is that getting bitcoins early was only half the battle. Then you'd have to assume you'd navigate the minefield of scams, hackers, taxes, and exchange implosions while retaining most of your bitcoins before retiring in Tahiti.

You can be and we can be, all of us can be a one in a million. If we are working hard and still working our ass off every day and night to just gain bitcoin or money then our dream will become true because the only thing to reach our dreams is just to keep working hard and having a great perseverance and consistency and the results will just follow after you work hard.

That tremendous increase of bitcoin from 2008 to up to present shows that bitcoins it self may still increase overtime. Those who were mining on the first years of bitcoins were just lucky enough that the price of bitcoin they save gain a large number which they really deserve because of their effort. how I wish I started bitcoins earlier so I can also earn a lot.

I would say the same thing too into myself when theres a chance i would go back to the past i wouldnt still sure if i would mine or invest bitcoin if i knew it when it was just starting and same as yours i would rather prioritize food rather than on bitcoin but sadly things comes out on opposite way which would really make us regret on the end on not jumping on the boat on earliest days.

It is a crazy thought, if you can travel time, you should store it and use it for the future, because then the bitcoin carries a very low value, it is even equal to 1/6 present value. If you store bitcoin in the past, you will become an extremely wealthy at the present time. However, it is only wishes that never happen.

A very crazy thought that @Dorky have there, time travel with memory loss? what is the sense of travelling back to the time when bitcoin is completely worthless if you have memory loss? it is very ironic that you are going to travel through time and you are going to have memory loss, such a waste of time, lol. Because the reason why we are going to do time travel (if possible) is to earn bitcoin, and save it and go back to the present to be a wealthy man in an instant.

But, if this time travel is going to be a real one, I am sure that we need to spend a huge amount of money to make this come true, it would be a big risk but it is going to worth it if it is going to be successful.

They are the legends. The early ancestors in Bitcoin that has been in the early stages. I've heard about Bitcoin in the documentary called the " Deepweb ". But I just started to be part of this community when a friend explained me what he is doing online. Even if he's just one year ahead of me. The difference in our experiences and our wallet is so vast. I think that because this is the golden age of development of cryptocurrencies and the rapidly increasing of value of the Bitcoin. I've said rapidly because we're lucky that Bitcoin even clock to 1200 $ while gold takes a decade to grow value.

One in a million is a term itself of being one in a million. It's a combination of hard work, luck, persistent, patience and being early on this. Don't weep because you started late. And I feel so late too, but I'm doing my best to catch up to these and be part of this revolutionary and evolutionary change.

This post should be updated.

Price of 21 BTC today :  27000$

If I am to update the post each time price moves, then the first post will be 100 pages long in a month. however I have decided to update it at least twice a year, meaning every 6 month or so but probably will do it sooner because my main purpose in this topic is to show the long term change of price not each small swing that bitcoin has.

This is really interesting! I never thinkike this. Those who started mining and buying earlier, is so lucky. But the thing is I can never own 21 btc.  :'(
You can own 21 bitcoins, it is not too late to collect and accumulate a lot of bitcoins because bitcoin is just getting started in the market and it is still a young currency, sooner or later we will see a 2k price for bitcoin in USD rate, so if i were you, i will work hard and earn bitcoins as much as a can even not that 21 bitcoins but at least 1 bitcoin.

being one in a million is one of those interesting topics in bitcoin if you ask me. we all know that there will only be 21 million maximum bitcoins available (ignoring the number of coins lost).

so if you have 21 bitcoins you can be one in a million.

now we all know there are 7.5 billion people in the whole world and there is a very limited supply of bitcoin available.

The following is the cost of being 1 in a million throughout the past years.
* bubbles are ignored and price is average

Year|21BTC cost
2008-2010|Practically free!
2010|$3.7
2011|$84
2012|$188
2013|$2,200
2014|$9,030
2015|$5,670
2016|$12,117
2017|$21,210 Today's price

when you look at things like that, they seem pretty ridiculous that once you could be 1 in a million with only 3 bucks but today you have to pay 21 grand to be 1 in a million
Great thread, it will come to the point the average person will not be able to hold 21 bitcoins, I’m sure that for the person in the third world trying to get 21 bitcoin at the current price is going to prove very difficult if not impossible.

I've been dillydallying for the past month, but seeing this yearly Bitcoin average price. Wow.
I mean, why didn't I think of that? Couldn't see the bigger picture. It's not about the weekly, or the monthly price. Long term is what's important.
Again, thanks.

Being one in a million is the long time expectation of every bitcoin user as the generation of bitcoin is quite limited. Hope the price increase continue for a long time. Possibly I'll earn as much possible and my target is to have 21 btc in my wallet and be the one among the 21 million.

But how long would you be 1 in a million ?

I have more than 10BTC and am probably already 1 in a million, because of Bitcoin distribution (lots of whales). I hold to my coins for now, buy some more, lend some, trade some, 21BTC is surely a goal, 42BTC another, but at some point, when what BTC I have will be worth a lot of fiat, let's say about 1 million $/€, then I will probably sell most of it. So I will no longer be 1 in a million BTC owners. Instead I will be one young retired man in a nice beach house someplace remote.

Long term always trumps it all, this is why people that have held bitcoin from the beginning are not selling why should they, they are in the best investment of all time.

Well, I wish I could be one of the million but I don't think that I'll ever reach a point like that, maybe if I get lucky sometime in the future but it is doubtful at best to be completely realistic.
I don't think there will be a million people with 21 BTC though, especially considering the weird distribution of it. Maybe 500,000, maybe less than that. If I was able to be in that group by now I'd be happy, but I guess I just have to take what I can.

I've changed my mind and now want to be 1 in a million soon. I've sold part of my shares in the stock market and am buying BTC in the dips. 21BTC planned for one month from now.

Bitcoin is so impressive that everyone is rushing toward it and the price you are talking about 12500$ that will also be achieved as now price is at 6.1k and more of it the user trend is all toward bitcoin and this difference will be soon captured as many of countries are thinking about to accept it by seeing its advantages there will be more investor in future that will bring price to the high points, it will be awesome.

I wish i started mining and bying bitcoins back in 2010 like the early adopters.
I was pretty stupid at that time. >:(
I don`t know what`s the point of this "research"?Do you have 21 btc?
I will never have 21 bitcoins.

Same goes for me. I wish I would have at least tried to download the whole blockchain (there was no light client back in that time) and start to mine a few Bitcoins when it was still possible with a single PC. Now its too late and we should focus on trading BTC or good alt coins.
