# If I had Invested \$5000 in Bitcoin Seven Years Ago what Would It be Worth Today?

So, a common question that arises with bitcoin investors today is if they had invested \$5000 in bitcoin seven years ago, how much would the investment be worth today? We’ll go through the math for you here in a few moments, but the bottom line is at the notional price of bitcoin today, the value of the coins would be just over a billion dollars USD! I don’t know about you, but most of us could do a fair amount of good in the world (after paying off all of your debt and taking care of your family) with this much money. Of course, we all had the opportunity to become a Bitcoin billionaire or millionaire if you were cheap 😊 But how many of us took advantage of the opportunity.

## So What Would \$5K in Bitcoin Bought in 2010 be Worth Today?

SO, on December 8th, 2010, bitcoin was only worth \$0.08 per coin. So, for our math, if you bought \$5,000 USD in bitcoin, you would have collected 62,500 bitcoins. Now, fast forward to today. Bitcoin has been up and down, but if we fair out the price to an even \$16,000 per coin on January 8th, 2017, then the total value of our investment from seven years ago would be worth: 62,500 * 16,000 = 1,000,000,000.00 . That’s right at a billion dollars USD!
