What is a Satoshi? (sat)


A satoshi is the smallest unit of the bitcoin cryptocurrency, named after its pseudonymous creator, or creators, Satoshi Nakamoto.

You may have stumbled upon this page hoping to find out how many satoshis are in a bitcoin or the USD value of your satoshis. According to the software rules, each bitcoin can be subdivided into a satoshi to bitcoin ratio of 100 million to 1, meaning: 

 

 

1 satoshi = 0.00000001 bitcoin


or


1 bitcoin = 100,000,000 satoshis

Of note, you will often find satoshis abbreviated as sats. 

Use the satoshi to USD converter tool above to calculate how many satoshis are in your USD balance, or how much USD your satoshis are worth. You can also calculate Satoshi to BTC using our calculator tool.

Other bitcoin denominations:


While satoshi is the more popular subunit of bitcoin today, other denominations exist:
 

  • Centi-bitcoin (cBTC) - equivalent to 0.01 BTC
  • Milli-bitcoin (mBTC) - equivalent to 0.001 BTC
  • Micro-bitcoin (μBTC) - equivalent to 0.000001 BTC

Why Use Satoshis?


Bitcoin was originally created with the intent to be a “peer-to-peer electronic cash system”, meaning anyone could use it to pay for goods and services. 

 

Bitcoin's current rise in popularity has increased the transaction times and associated fees to the point that it stopped being  a practical day-to-day payment method.

 

However, there are scaling solutions being built on top of the Bitcoin blockchain, such as the lightning network, helping to increase the transaction speeds and decrease overall transaction fees, thus making sats more useful as a payment rail.

 

Further, investors may be interested in using sats as a way to dollar cost average into bitcoin, or generally invest in the cryptocurrency without needing to purchase a full coin.
