Bitcoin Turns 14 But After Being Declared ‘Dead’ 467 Times — Here’s Tracking Its Journey – Benzinga

Today marks the 14th anniversary of Bitcoin  – the world’s largest and most popular cryptocurrency. Since its mysterious creator Satoshi Nakamoto released a whitepaper outlining its potential back in 2009, there has been much debate and skepticism about its potential. Bitcoin has been declared “dead” a staggering 467 times since then.

Bitcoin’s “death” can be tracked at Bitcoin Obituary, a parody website that collates news articles and blogs. It has already been declared dead 27 times in 2022 and 47 times in 2021. But the highest number of “deaths” it recorded (124) was in 2017, when its market cap hit $100 billion for the first time.
