Bitcoin BTC/USD is the largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization. The history of the nearly ten-year-old coin has been marked by volatility, but it has rewarded early holders phenomenally.
On July 17, 2010 – as of some of the earliest price data available – BTC was trading at $0.09, while hitting a record high of $68,789.63 on November 10, 2021.
This year, Bitcoin has not yet charted any huge gains and the coin is down 16.75% year-on-year.

The Investment: As we come to the end of the long holiday weekend marked by Good Friday and Easter Sunday, let’s assume an investor bought $100 worth of BTC last Easter (April 4, 2021) when the top coin fell. This is how much they would have now if Bitcoin traded at $39,764.36.Purchase Date/Purchase Amount Purchase Price Coins Acquired Current Value Percentage Change Apr 4, 2021 $100 $39,764.36 0.0017019 $67.67 -32.32%
The investor would have lost $32.33 or more than 32% of their $100 investment if they hit the top spot on Easter Sunday last year.
If Bitcoin bounces back to its all-time high, the same $100 investment could still yield quite a benefit.
