# Bitcoin shower thoughts

The market cap of “x” is \$1000.

There are 100 units, each unit is \$10.

\$1000 ÷ 100 = \$10

Let’s say a new unit is added, i.e 101 units.

This in turn dilutes the price of each unit.

\$1000 ÷ 101 ≈ \$9.90

Now, if the price of each is not to be diluted – we want a stable price of \$10 per unit – then \$10 would need to be added to the market cap.

\$1010 ÷ 101 = \$10

Considering Bitcoin,

If 900 new coins are mined, each day, for the price to be “stable”, let’s use 40k as example, then \$36,000,000 needs to be added to the market cap, each day.

And for the price of Bitcoin to rise, in the example above, more than \$36,000,000 needs to be added to the market cap.

If the price reaches \$100,000 per Bitcoin, before the limit of coins mined is reached, do you think the amount of capital required to maintain a stable price is feasible/realistic?

Will we only see extreme highs once all coins are mined and the price per coin cannot be diluted by the addition of new coins?

Are we at a point where the capital added to the market cannot maintain the price? Hence the decrease in price from ATH.
