Bitcoin touches new milestone. Work meetings will move to metaverse

dec 22, 2021 | min read

Bitcoin has reached a new milestone: 90 percent of all Bitcoins set to ever enter supply have now been mined.

According to Blockchain.com, 90% of all Bitcoins have been mined. There are currently
18.89 million Bitcoins on the market out of the maximum possible number of 21 million.

It has taken almost 12 years to reach this milestone since the first Bitcoins were mined on
January 9, 2009. However, we do not expect to mine the remaining stock until February 2140,
based on estimates of network activity and plans by so-called Bitcoin halving.

Several well-known brands, companies, and personalities have already joined the virtual world. Such as Adidas, Atari, and deadmau5. (2)
