According to different reports, it is easy to guess the time that the bitcoin would be mined due to the common software sync. In the views of many, like Tetras Capital founding partner Alex Sunnarborg, when contacted by . Bitcoin, revealed that the result could best be interpreted as 80 percent of all the bitcoin that will be ever created have now been mined, stating that just 1/5 of the supply is apportioned to future miners and buyers.

“I would bet the founders wouldn’t have imagined how important bitcoin would become in their wildest dreams.”
Some also, in their observation believe the mine is an enlightenment on the future of the coin and even other cryptocoin. Many do not know that unless those behind Bitcoin make changes, it is impossible to introduce more bitcoin to the crypto space.
