The Transaction Was From Brainwallet "cat";"password";"password 1"(That's Why F2Pool Have Access To The Wallet).F2Pool Maybe Want To Include More Transaction For Predictable Brainwallet(dog,password2,password3), But Due To 1 MB Blocksize Limit, They Can't.

3. 1 Million Bitcoin Was Pre-Mined By Satoshi Nakamoto (4.75% Bitcoin Max Supply)
nonsense.
there was no pre-mine. there was only mining and it was not Satoshi alone who were mining, there were also others that joined in the early year. and 1 million is a rough guess at best about what Satoshi might have earned from the blocks he mined over a year.

Quote
4. 90% Bitcoin On The Circulation Is Owned By 1% Richest Address
nonsense again.
even if you purely look at rich lists the addresses having large amounts don't even reach 40% of total supply not to mention that majority of those addresses belong to exchanges and services not persons.

i only know of 1 hard fork in bitcoin what are the other 4? can you list them?
remember that creating a shitcoin like BCash out of bitcoin is not a hard fork for bitcoin it is a fork from bitcoin to create an altcoin.

Very useful information! learned a lot about what's new about bitcoin! About pizza, of course, I knew, and I was always amazed at it! but on the other hand, who knew then that today bitcoin will cost so much! In principle, the most useful events in the life of bitcoin are described here! this information will be just as useful for beginners! I myself took on a couple of interesting entries!

If that bitcoin pizza guy held his bitcoin up to date, bitcoin wouldn't achieve the heights it has reached now because of the volume of bitcoin transactions not being enough today.

Very useful info.More newbies have to read this before joining the crypto world.
It would be awesome,if there are such Trivia lists about most of the popular altcoins,such as ethereum,litecoin,ripple,EOS,cardano,bitcoin cash...

3. 1 Million Bitcoin Was Pre-Mined By Satoshi Nakamoto (4.75% Bitcoin Max Supply)

wrong

premined is a term for where coins are released WITHOUT mining  (pre-mine)
satoshi's coins where created VIA mining..

secondly. the code was released publicly and if you look at the hidden techy stats of the blockchain. you will see that multiple people were mining it. and yes that includes hal finney mining it in the very first days

thirdly although between 2009 and 2012 although 10.5 mill coins were mined. meaning in year one 2.5mill coins were mined. guess what. satoshi was not a third of the population in 2009. there were actually dozens. so the 1mill coin number is not accurate. even the nonce analysis shows this

3. you still can not categorize any of the altcoins created out of bitcoin under "bitcoin hard forks". just because some website lists them or they are created out of bitcoin you can't say bitcoin had X number of forks. the correct statement is "X number of altcoins were created using bitcoin code and its blockchain history"

so still there is only 1 hard fork for bitcoin so far.

Okay, there are 32 million bitcoin wallets. Would you agree if we say it's 32 million bitcoin addresses? If you do, then 1% is 320k addresses/wallets, right? Let's take the source you quoted, I also trust this one. Turns out that you are right, 1% of addresses do own around 90% of coins.. But hey, 320k is a significant number, so I don't think it leaves room for some global conspiracy, while when you put it in percentage it really sounds plausible. And I agree with BrewMaster that you messed up with pre-mined bitcoins (no such thing). The overall list is pretty cool, though, so I'll give you a merit as well.

We also have to take in consideration that every person own multiple bitcoin adresses. So probably that those people that are included in the 1% in reality have 10% of the existing bitcoin adresses or even more since there are people who have even hundreds of adresses in their wallets. So this fact 90% Bitcoin On The Circulation Is Owned By 1% Richest Address is not entirely true.

Good thing OP clarify the 90% of bitcoin own by 1% richest address. I almost freak out when I read the OP.

I am wondering that you did not know anything about block rewards or block rewards halving?
You can mine the block even it has no transaction in it. When Network was started the block reward was BTC50. Currently it is  BTC12.5

It's is very expensive to mine bitcoins,setting up the mining rig etc.
And to answer your question,if there are less transactions,the price of bitcoin drops as well as the hashrate which makes mining bitcoins less profitable.
The more reason why miners usually shut down their mining rigs in such periods.

Why They Mine BTC When There Is No Pending Transaction?
To Earn Bitcoin

The Block Reward Is  Subsidy+Transaction Fee
No Transaction = No Fee, But The Miner Will Still Earn Bitcoin(From Subsidy)

But still nothing beats to do your own research rather than believe all of these, some listed are wrong and don't have enough evidence.

Good to know so many facts about bitcoin. I didn't know of some them though which I am happy to read them now.


2. When You Generate New Bitcoin Address There Is 1 : 2^135 Chance That Your "Newly Generated Address" Has A Balance On It
    (For Comparison There Is Only 2^63 Grains Of Sand On The Earth)
That's huge. I never made such a comparison. Well this means nobody ever will actually get an address filled with BTC  :-[  ;D

9. Bitcoin Is Still On Beta Phase (https://bitcoin.org/en/faq#what-are-the-disadvantages-of-bitcoin)
I guess BTC will remain in Beta forever. Can somebody clarify ?

It seems like that.
Bitcoin changes not that frequently as most of the other cryptocurrencies and any significant change will require an extremely high approval from the community. New bitcoin fork is more likely to appear instead of consensus about BTC changes.

. My goodness an 80 BTC transaction fee to send .0125. So sad for whoever's wallet that was.
Well it's really surprising mate?  Was wondering if that was a mistake or if that actually a bug or something.
How can 80btc be charged as transcation fee
