Many people who use Bitcoin faucets want to check the value of their satoshis in USD, so we made this easy calculator for people to do just that!
Most BTC is traded in USD, so that is also a popular way to calculate satoshis value.
Each bitcoin (BTC) is divisible to the 8th decimal place, so each BTC can be split into 100,000,000 units.
Each unit of bitcoin, or 0.00000001 bitcoin, is called a satoshi.
There are 100,000,000 satoshi in a BTC.
The value of a Satoshi in USD changes almost every second. You can use our Satoshi to USD converter above to find out what one satoshi is worth right now.
A centibit is one hundredth of a Bitcoi (1/100) or 1% of a Bitcoin.
A common confusion with using the term Satoshi is that it is confused the Bitcoin's creator, Satoshi Nakamoto (the term "satoshi" as a measurement is named after Nakamoto).
However Satoshi Nakamoto's net worth is way higher than a single satoshi.
TL;DR: if you use Bitcoin's all time high price of around $20,000, Satoshi Nakamoto would have been worth about $20 billion, but this number obviously changes with the price of Bitcoin.
Most fee calculators use satoshis as the unit.
Many wallets, faucets and exchanges also display amounts and fees in satoshis.
