The Bitcoin system is designed such that only 21 million BTC will ever be minted – ever. The last BTC will be created in the year 2140. On first glance, one might say: “What? That’s not enough! If BTC is going to succeed, we’re going to need a boatload more BTC to be minted.

But wait! Unlike the USD, which is divisible down to .01 USD, BTC can be sliced down to 1 “satoshi“, which is .00000001 BTC. Thus, when 2140 rolls around, 2,100,000,000,000,000 satoshis will have been minted world-wide. Man, that’s a lot o’ satoshis.


Fuggedaboud calling me BD00 anymore, just call me “BTC Dog” from now on. It’s got a nice gangsta rapper twang to it, no?
