Satoshi vs Bitcoin

Satoshi and Bitcoin are eternally linked, they are just two different units of the same cryptocurrency. For example, let’s say you have 1 Bitcoin. You could also say that you have 100 million Satoshi.

1 bitcoin is 100 million satoshi

Until now it still makes sense to use the Bitcoin unit, but what if Bitcoin goes to 100,000$ one day? Then we may start using the Satoshi unit more frequently, especially when we’re talking about lower quantities. It’s just easier to say 1 million Satoshi instead of 0.01 Bitcoin (which would be equal to 1,000$ if the price of 1 Bitcoin goes up to 100,000$).
