Bitcoin Is 86% On The Way To Halving

Bitcoin Progress Towards Next Halving Has Now Hit 86%

In a post on X, the BTC cycle analyst Root posted an update on the halving progress of the cryptocurrency. The “halving is a periodic event on the Bitcoin blockchain where the block rewards of the asset are cut exactly in half.”

The “block rewards here refer to the rewards that miners receive as compensation for solving blocks on the network. These rewards serve as the only way to mint new BTC, so the rate at which miners solve blocks can be thought of as the production rate of the asset.

The reason the halving exists is so that this production rate continues to go down over time. If the halving wasn’t there, the Bitcoin supply would continue to indefinitely grow at a constant rate, thus potentially leading to the asset’s price taking a hit, because of how supply-demand dynamics tend to work out.

With the halving, Bitcoin’s inflation remains controlled and the asset becomes more scarce with each of these events, which take place roughly every four years. As halvings are such significant events, many experts use them to define what constitutes a Bitcoin “cycle.”

In the case of the cycle lying between the first and second BTC halvings, the price declined after this top but was quick to find its feet and returned to an overall upward trajectory.

For the cycle between halvings 2 and 3, though, the coin saw a steeper decline and didn’t resume its uptrend until the end of the cycle. It should be noted, however, that the onset of COVID-19, which resulted in a sharp crash for the cryptocurrency, may have played a part in the asset’s deviation.

With the next halving fast approaching next year, it now remains to be seen what path Bitcoin will take from here. There have been some similarities between the rally this year and the April 2019

rally, though, which may mean that the cryptocurrency could be more likely to follow the lead of the last cycle.source: Bitcoinist
