Bitcoin’s “The Halving”

Bitcoin is now in the rise again (or, as of last week at least) and a huge factor of said rising ever since the low-end March has been anticipation of a (seemingly) apocalyptic event in the world of Cryptocurrency known only as the “Halving.”

To understand this upcoming event, one must first understand that Bitcoin is by no means a centralized authority issuance unlike fiat currencies. Often called “Decentralized”, cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin are governed only by code and via the innovative technology we now know today as Blockchain.

This world of bitcoin, blockchain and cryptocurrency in general, is basically run and/or populated by so-called “Miners” with specialized high-powered computers. Their economy runs by way of competing with each other to solve complex math problems to validate all of the bitcoin transactions happening all over the world by any user (such as yourself, if you already have some). Whoever gets to be the first one to “validate” and basically win the race each get rewarded in newly minted bitcoin happening in blocks, essentially just a group of transactions joined into one and powered by money. Now you know where all your transaction fees go to (just kidding, don’t kill me).

Before the coming rapture of new tokens, miners get around 12.5 bitcoin per block mined. Yes, imagine how much that is in dollars today. Believe it or not though, these rewards were much higher before (as much as 50 BTC back in 2009!) but they’re halved every few years to keep a lid on inflation, which makes a lot of sense. How else are they going to drive up prices, am I right? In any case, this May, the reward per miner has been cut in half again, to 6.25 new BTC. As such, the supply of bitcoin coming onto the market being reduced has preceded greatly increased bitcoin prices over the years, based on previous halving events which usually happens every four years.
