Bitcoin mining is a term used for adding transaction records in the block called the blockchain. This blockchain often refers to confirming of a transaction to the rest of the network as there is a lot regarding blockchains, cryptocurrency and the prime being bitcoin. One such news that is smashing in every human’s mind is halving of bitcoin.
The halving of bitcoin generally means cutting off the supply of new bitcoins, but some say this will have a drastic consequence while some regard this as a fruitful peak in bitcoin’s value. None of the less the results would affect many things, one being- bitcoin mining.
Though people have not left their hopes on next year’s bitcoin halving as a catalyst for another bull rally, issues are surfing more towards bitcoin mining. So the time has no bound to anyone and this year’s bitcoin mining has only 141 days to go! Though halving is compulsory to conduct in every four years.
The estimated day for this year’s mining is May 14 2020. This widely anticipated event will require a lot many things on counting, such as a decrease in the inflation of the number of BTC generated per day. This could slow down the process on a large scale.
Expectations give everyone a boost, and the same is with this; people are expecting a price pump as was witnessed with Litecoin earlier this year. If we gander our sight in the flashback, then it appears that the price pump began around six months’ after bitcoin’s last halving and it reaches a peak up to a year later.
In adjoining to this, previous bitcoin halvings from 2012 and 2016 have not seen price peaks until late following years with 2017 being the most recent one! The report added that there is not enough evidence that 2012 halving led to increment in 2013 rally and that the 2017 peak was primarily driven by 2016, but this was all due to Initial Coin Offering(ICO) boom.
The halving did this year because after 2020 it is estimated to be more expensive. The mining performance has shown us the increment in the hash rate, and China has no doubt driven this hash rate surge.
The dump would surely be taken if the hash rate continues to climb up, but BTC price remains at current levels; thereby putting pressure on hardware manufacturers such as Bitmain and Canaan and leading to deteriorated as well as unprofitable mining.
