What is Satoshi?
Satoshi (SAT) refers to the smallest unit of Bitcoin (BTC). One Satoshi (SAT) is equal to 0.00000001 Bitcoin (BTC), or one hundred millionth of a bitcoin.
It is named after the founder of Bitcoin, Satoshi Nakamoto.
Bitcoins that are split into these smaller units make trading Bitcoin (BTC) easier and its transactions more readable for our users.
