## What is the Fair Value of Bitcoin?

The Fair Value is needed for valuing the attractiveness of an investor's assets.

Like any other asset (Currencies, Stocks, Commodities), **Bitcoin** has its Fair Value.

## How do you calculate it?

ALFAquotes created a mining-based formula for calculating **Bitcoin Fair Value**.

Our formula takes all aspects of mining into account; the calculated Bitcoin value is not static but changes together with the mining industry.

## Formula

The formula reflects the profitability of Bitcoin mining with a recoupment period of under 6 months.

The formula takes account of the price of the most profitable hardware for mining (Hardware_Cost), expenditure on electric power (Enerdgy_Costs), and the quantity of mined Bitcoin (Mined_BTC)

$$BTC\_Price = {Hardware\_Cost + Energy\_Costs\over Mined\_BTC}$$

Calculation of mined Bitcoin over 6 months:

$$Mined\_BTC = { Time \cdot R \over 2^{32} / HashRate} \cdot { \left( \sum_{x=1}^n {1 \over diff(x)} \right) }$$

where:

Time - is computation time in seconds (average time for difficulty to increase);

n - is the quantity of periods with differing degrees of difficulty over 6 months;

R - is the reward per block;

Diff(x) - is a function to determine the difficulty of any future period, based on historical data.

HashRate - is the power of the hardware used.
