Currently Bitcoin value is about $ 4,100 / BTC. But the fact is that the value continues to grow from the initial price when new Bitcoin comes up that is not even worth a dollar. That is, those who have had Bitcoin for a long time now are multi-millionaires, not just billionaires!
Let’s look at 9 examples of insane rising Bitcoin values below.

Although his true identity is not even known, the founder of Bitcoin, Satoshi Nakamoto, is believed to have a BTC of $ 4.7 billion, he rode the wave of value from the start.
– MarketCap Worth $ 75.8 Billion

– 10K pizza
Among Bitcoin, May 22 is known as Bitcoin Pizza Day. Because in 2010 on the same day, two pizzas became the first purchase to use criptocurrency. The purchase price of the two pizzas is 10,000 BTC, which is currently over $ 38 million!
– James Howell Hard Drive
Bitcoin was initially setup with a user wallet connected to their hard drive. There are many horror stories where people throw away their old computers, and forget that they have ever played with BTC. It was experienced by James Howells. He dumped his drives, which contained his 7,500 BTC Bitcoin wallet in early 2009. Desperately he went in search of a garbage dump to find him. Imagine the missing Bitcoin value now!

You know Bitcoin is a valuable asset when the IRS establishes its recognition of the virtual currency. In 2015 only 802 residents are asking BTC-related taxes. Currently virtual currency is treated as a property for U.S. federal tax purposes, which means you only need to propose revenue generated by Bitcoin.
