Everyone knows it, halving happened on 11th may. But what were its real effects ?
1 - Problems for miners
Miners who had unefficient machines or expensive energy weren't longer profitable.
2 - A free "Ad" for bitcoin
When the halving happens, all the community talk about bitcoin to non-users people.
3 - Bitcoin tx fees increase
If bitcoin tx capacity is reduced (unprofitable miners), but load increases (ad for bitcoin), fees are increasing, and tx confirmation time increases (I had a transaction that took 2 weeks to confirm).
4 - BTC price increase
Because new users are new buyers, price often increase after a halving. Not because miners are selling less, but because bitcoin is more known.
5 - Many questions like this
Because many people like me have questions like this. But, for knowing what'll happen for the long-term, the best way is waiting and seeing by yourself.
