Even though the price of Bitcoin (BTC) has been gradually growing since its inception, using the flagship decentralized finance (DeFi) asset to buy some of the more traditional goods, such as, i.e., eggs would today cost you less than it did five years ago, in 2018.
Specifically, a dozen eggs on July 3, 2018, had cost $20,284.60, while, at press time, this price stands at $3,621.69, indicating a decline of 82.15% over the period of five years, according to the data acquired from Pricedinbitcoin21, the platform that tracks prices of traditional assets versus Bitcoin, on July 3.
Indeed, the price of a dozen eggs currently costs 3,622 Satoshis (SATs), which is the smallest unit of Bitcoin, equalling 0.00000001 BTC (one hundred millionth of a Bitcoin). In the last month alone, the decrease in this price relation has amounted to over 11.50%, whereas in the last year, it has declined 56.70%.
