These special events in Bitcoins history are milestones to me, and with the hashrate so much higher than the previous halving I think its a sign that Bitcoin is doing well, even with the reward drop.
I remember when the block reward was 50 BTC and there was a mining pool called 50BTC, If someone solo mined back then and got a block they would get 50 Bitcoins for the reward. Amazing!!!
Now people cannot solo mine Bitcoin and the block reward is a fraction of what it was since before the first halving. All of this got me interested in looking for others talking about the Bitcoin halving. And sure enough there was plenty of content on the Hive Blockchain to find some minnows that deserve to be curated.
Here are five content creators that caught my eye.
Bitcoin halving block perpetuity message against Fed's Plan by @behiver
They pointed out how the mined block right as the halving occurred, a special message was included in that block. "NYTimes 09/Apr/2020 With $2.3T Injection, Fed's Plan Far Exceeds 2008 Rescue Mined" They talk about how this is a message like written in stone that shows the difference between crypto and the traditional fiat system. I did not realize this, so its something I learned while looking for halving posts.
Happy Halving ! by @blazing
@blazing was talking about how the pre-halving dump almost rekted them. They speculate on what is going to happen next and point to 2017 discussing past events.
Halving Of Bitcoin... So What? by @kramgelo
@kramgelo discusses this event and says it mostly only affects the miners, which is correct. They talk about how mining is a crucial process to Bitcoin and its important to have enough network effect to make a 51% hard to do at this point.
Bitcoin Halving on Tuesday - What will happen? @connecteconomy
They discuss how the mining reward will be cut in half from 12.5 BTC to 6.25 BTC. Also discussed is about how past performance can predict future performance, it all depends on demand. And since more people know about it since the last halving it should have an impact.
Google Searches for Bitcoin Halving 300% higher than in 2016 by @jondoe
This user talks about how Google trends shows a 300% higher interest compared to the previous halving in 2016. Thats a great observation, I did not realize that. They also discuss how the next all time high could be very high, but they do not think its going to happen to levels projected looking at the math.
Thats my five curations of Minnows on the Hive Blockchain. While I was searching for good halving posts I learned a few new things. Such as the block message quoting our current quantitative easing status aka money printing. And how much higher interest is in Bitcoin now, since the last halving.
