The queen of digital currencies is becoming an increasingly unusual currency. More than 90% of bitcoins are now circulating on the market. 

When creating the currency, Satoshi Nakamoto decided to limit the number of bitcoins to 21 million.

No new currencies can be mined once 21 million bitcoins have been mined

Like the cryptocurrency white paper, the Bitcoin Code does not allow new tokens to existing once they reach this threshold.

According to experts, it will have to wait until 2140 for the last bitcoin to leave mining.
