What is Halving?
Halving is a fixed event in Bitcoin, occurring approximately every four years when miners mine 210,000 blocks. During each halving, the block reward is reduced by 50%. This process continues until the total supply of BTC reaches 21 million.
Why is Bitcoin Halved?
Halving reduces the supply rate of Bitcoin, effectively controlling inflation and giving BTC a scarcity that favors the sustainability of its network and value.
Why Does Bitcoin Halving Matter?
Historically, Bitcoin prices have drastically fluctuated before and after halving. This fluctuation heavily impacts not only the prices of cryptocurrencies but also investors' mindset, making it an important event in the crypto world.
