Bitcoin units of measurement

Bitcoin is designed so that its currency is divisible into very small fractions. Each Bitcoin has 100 million "cents". The smallest unit of measure that 1 bitcoin can be divided is called Satoshi.

1 satoshi equals 0.00000001 bitcoins

The smallest possible fraction of a bitcoin is named in honor of Satoshi Nakamoto, pseudonym of the person who created Bitcoin (person or people ...) Based on this we have a series of bitcoin measures widely used in wallets, markets and the crowd of software and services that work with Bitcoin.

The measures of Bitcoin, from highest to lowest, are as follows:

  • Bitcoin (BTC)*
    1 BTC = 1 bitcoin

  • Decibitcoin  (dBTC)
    1 dBTC = 0.1 bitcoin
    1 BTC = 10 dBTC

  • Centibitcoin (cBTC)
    1 cBTC = 0.01 bitcoin
    1 BTC = 100 cBTC

  • Milibitcoin (mBTC )
    1 mBTC = 0.001 bitcoin
    1 BTC = 1,000 mBTC

  • Microbitcoin (μBTC)*
    1 μBTC = 0.000001 bitcoin
    1 bit = 0.000001 bitcoin
    1 BTC = 1,000,000 microbitcoins or bits

* The microbitcoin unit of measurement is also called bit

  • Satoshi (sat)
    1 satoshi = 0.00000001 bitcoin
    1 BTC = 100,000,000 satoshis
