Bitcoin Gold Visualisation

By silviodc, 1 May 2019

Recently I was wondering how much gold a Bitcoin is currently worth.
I calculated that it would just need a coin, little bigger than a 2 Euro coin. Since this is an easy calculation, but can be a good visualization of the worth of a Bitcoin, I created a dynamic representation of it in Java Script.

It checks for the current Bitcoin price from and calculates the necessary amount of gold to pay for it. Based on the thickness of a Vienna Philharmonic gold coin, it also determines the size of such a coin and displays it in the right ratio.

For comparison it also shows the size the required gold coin at bitcoins all time high, and 5 years before.

Hope you like it 😉
