BitBet history

Saturday, 21 March, Year 7 d.Tr. | Author: Mircea Popescu

Bitbet recently paid out on the largest bet in its historyi, and as its wallets are feeling all light and fluffy after the experienceii, it's maybe time to look back over the years.

Here's a graph of Bitcoin intake by week, for the 122 weeks that we've been in business :


Completely disinterested in the BTC/USD evolutions, that went from ~2 to ~1`200 in the interval, the weekly average, which is now just a tad shy of 200 BTC/week, is almost exactly equal to the average over the first year (1st of January 2013 - 1st of January 2014). Fancy that!

Onwards and upwards, as they say.

  1. Notably, not in the history of Bitcoin, the Vandroiy-Pirateat40 10`000 BTC bet that nanotube escrowed will probably hold that title forever.

    Of course, if you go by "equivalent dollar value" then ~5k @ 300 soundly beats 10k @ ~5 out of the field, and while a milion dollar + bet is significant even for Vegas, it's still not "the largest" as far as I know. []

  2. Which, by the way, was horrible. []
