The First Bitcoin Trade On Mt.Gox
As reported previously by The Crypto Associate, in a new blog post, Clark Moody outlined the first Bitcoin trade on Mt.Gox on July 17, 2010. The trade consisted of 20 Bitcoin for a total order value of just $0.9902, valuing one Bitcoin at $0.04951.
The cryptocurrency has come a long way since its inception over a decade ago. Even before the arrival of cryptocurrency exchanges, Bitcoin was sometimes traded for physical goods. Some early crypto adopters remember the now-famous Bitcoin pizza transaction in which a man by the name of Laszlo Hanyecz paid 10,000 Bitcoin for two Papa John’s pizzas back in May 2010.
While the cryptocurrency is still far away from its all-time high of $20,000 in 2017, the cryptocurrency is now trading at $9,300, a massive increase from Bitcoin’s value in 2010. Furthermore, the Bitcoin network itself has grown exponentially, with miners now estimated to consume over $3 billion in electricity on an annual basis.
