What Is Bitcoin Halving?

Bitcoin halving is an event where the reward for mining new Bitcoin blocks is cut in half, resulting in miners receiving 50% fewer Bitcoins for verifying transactions. Bitcoin halving occurs every 210,000 blocks which translate to approximately every 4 years.

No one knows what the value of Bitcoin will be after halvings in the future. The adoption rate of Bitcoin, blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies will have an impact on the price. However, it should not be forgotten that the political and economic developments in the world and the attitude of states and corporate companies in parallel with these developments will continue to have an impact on the value of Bitcoin.
