1. ### What is a Satoshi? What is the significance of the name ‘Satoshi’?

Satoshis are to Bitcoin what cents are to dollars – the difference being there are 100 cents in a dollar and 100 million Satoshis in a Bitcoin. It is the smallest unit of a Bitcoin as a cent is the smallest unit of a dollar. It is named after Satoshi Nakamoto, the pseudonymous creator of Bitcoin. The commonly used abbreviations for Satoshi/ Satoshis is “sat” or “sats”.

1. ### Why are Satoshis important to know about?

Satoshis are essential because they allow for transactions of Bitcoin in units smaller than a whole BTC. Imagine if you could only use dollars but you could not use cents. However this would be much more problematic in Bitcoin as the value of one Bitcoin is so much higher than a dollar.

2. ### How many Satoshis are in a Bitcoin?

There are 100,000,000 (one hundred million) Satoshis in a single Bitcoin. 1 Satoshi or 1 sat can be written as 0.00000001BTC.

3. ### How do I convert Bitcoin to Satoshis and vice versa?

To convert Bitcoin to Satoshis, you multiply the number of Bitcoins by 100 million. To convert Satoshis to Bitcoin, you divide the number of Satoshis by 100 million. See our examples of how to convert Satoshis to BTC and then into USD or other currencies below.

4. ### Can I buy Satoshis?

Yes, you most definitely can buy Satoshis. As far as I know all cryptocurrency exchanges allow you to buy parts of a Bitcoin which means Satoshis. Most people don’t buy a whole Bitcoin they buy parts of a Bitcoin or Satoshis.

5. ### What is the price of a Satoshi?

The price of a Satoshi fluctuates with the price of Bitcoin so you need to check on the current market value of Bitcoin. And then divide it by 100,000,000! See our examples of how to do the calculation of Satoshi to BTC and BTC to USD.

1. ### Can Satoshis be traded like Bitcoins?

Yes, most people will be buying and selling Satoshis rather than Bitcoins because the price of a whole Bitcoin is more than most people want to invest or spend. Satoshis can be traded just like Bitcoins on cryptocurrency exchanges. Satoshis can also be bought, sold, and transferred between Bitcoin wallets without using an intermediary company such as a bank which is a part of the appeal of BTC.

2. ### How are Satoshis created?

Like Bitcoin Satoshis are created through a process called mining. Miners use powerful computers called nodes to solve complex mathematical problems, and when they solve a problem, they are rewarded with new Bitcoins or rather more likely Satoshis. You can read more about Bitcoin Mining here.

3. ### Can I mine Satoshis?

Yes, mining Satoshis and Bitcoin is the same thing. Mining Bitcoin and making a profit from it requires various skills and can use up a lot of time and money. There is a significant investment in costly hardware and electricity required. At this stage because of the costs involved it is not going to be profitable for most people – but it makes an interesting past time and supports the network. There are many options available for the novice but my personal experience is that for most people it is best seen as a hobby. There are however interesting new ways to mine Bitcoin being developed e.g. a heater/ air filter that doubles as a Bitcoin miner. Bitcoin miners are known to produce a lot of heat so it is well suited for this purpose but more problematic in summer.

1. ## * How to convert Satoshis to USD & BTC to USD

The same principle applies for:
Satoshis to PHP and BTC to PHP
Satoshis to GBP and BTC to GBP
Satoshis to EURO and BTC to EURO
Satoshis to AUD and BTC to AUD
Satoshis to NZD and BTC to NZD  and so on…

You don’t need a Bitcoin calculator. It is easy to do the math yourself! It is pretty simple once you know how.

Note: These examples do not take into account any transaction fees or Cryptocurrency Exchange fees.

### EXAMPLE 1:

Convert 5 million Satoshis into USD with the price of BTC at \$30,000

### STEP 1: Convert Satoshis to Bitcoin

Since 1 Bitcoin is equivalent to 100 million Satoshis, you can convert Satoshis to Bitcoin by dividing the number of Satoshis by 100 million.

So, 5 million Satoshis would be:

5,000,000 Satoshis ÷ 100,000,000 = 0.05 BTC

1. ### STEP 2: Convert Bitcoin to USD

Now that you know you have 0.05 BTC, you can convert this to USD using the current Bitcoin price. If 1 Bitcoin is worth \$30,000, then:

0.05 BTC x \$30,000 = \$1,500

So, if 1 Bitcoin is worth \$30,000, then 5 million Satoshis would be worth \$1,500. You just need to check the current price of Bitcoin in your own currency.

It is more likely you will have an uneven number of Satoshis so let’s try that.

### EXAMPLE 2:

How to convert 1,257,438 Satoshis into USD if 1 Bitcoin (BTC) is worth \$30,000:

### STEP 1: Convert Satoshis to Bitcoin

Since 1 Bitcoin is equivalent to 100 million Satoshis, you can convert Satoshis to Bitcoin by dividing the number of Satoshis by 100 million.

So, 1,257,438 Satoshis would be:
1,257,438 Satoshis ÷ 100,000,000 = 0.01257438 BTC

### STEP 2: Convert Bitcoin to USD:

Now that you know you have 0.01257438 BTC, you can convert this to USD using the current Bitcoin price. If 1 Bitcoin is worth \$30,000, then:

0.01257438 BTC x \$30,000 = \$377.23 approximately

So, if 1 Bitcoin is worth \$30,000, then 1,257,438 Satoshis would be worth approximately \$377.23.

### Satoshi to USD – Putting it together:

1,257,438 Satoshis ÷ 100,000,000 = 0.01257438 BTC x \$30,000 = \$377.23

The number of Satoshis divided by 100,000,000 (the number of Satoshis in a Bitcoin) equals the number of or a fraction of BTC. Then multiply the number of or a fraction of BTC by the price of Bitcoin.

### EXAMPLE 1:

Convert \$1500 into BTC & Satoshis with the price of BTC at \$30,000

### STEP 1: Convert USD to Bitcoin

Since 1 Bitcoin is worth \$30,000, you can convert USD to Bitcoin by dividing the amount in USD by the price of Bitcoin.

So, \$1500 would be: \$1500 ÷ \$30,000 = 0.05 BTC

### STEP 2: Convert Bitcoin to Satoshis

Now that you know you have 0.05 BTC, you can convert this to Satoshis using the fact that 1 Bitcoin is equivalent to 100 million Satoshis.

So: 0.05 BTC x 100,000,000 = 5,000,000 Satoshis

So, if 1 Bitcoin is worth \$30,000, then \$1500 would be worth 5,000,000 Satoshis. You just need to check the current price of Bitcoin in your own currency.

Let’s try with an uneven amount of USD.

### EXAMPLE 2:

How to convert \$377.23 into BTC & Satoshis if 1 Bitcoin (BTC) is worth \$30,000:

### STEP 1: Convert USD to Bitcoin

Since 1 Bitcoin is worth \$30,000, you can convert USD to Bitcoin by dividing the amount in USD by the price of Bitcoin.

So, \$377.23 would be:
\$377.23 ÷ \$30,000 = 0.0125741 BTC
approximately

### STEP 2: Convert Bitcoin to Satoshis

Now that you know you have approximately 0.0125741 BTC, you can convert this to Satoshis using the fact that 1 Bitcoin is equivalent to 100 million Satoshis.

0.0125741 BTC x 100,000,000 = 1,257,410 Satoshis approximately

So, if 1 Bitcoin is worth \$30,000, then \$377.23 would be worth approximately 1,257,410 Satoshis.

### USD to BTC & Satoshis – Putting it together:

\$377.23 ÷ \$30,000 = 0.0125741 BTC x 100,000,000 = 1,257,410 Satoshis approximately

The amount in USD divided by the price of Bitcoin (in USD) gives the number of or a fraction of BTC. Then multiply the number of or a fraction of BTC by 100,000,000 (the number of Satoshis in a Bitcoin) to get the number of Satoshis.
