Bitcoin halving occurs once every four years.
This is when the future supply of Bitcoin gets cut in half.
With this feature, the total supply of new Bitcoin into the crypto market will continue to fall.
As the years go by, this will protect Bitcoin from inflation while ensuring Bitcoin value and price continue going up.
To better understand Bitcoin halving, how new Bitcoins are created and added to the crypto market, we will be explaining the term “Bitcoin Mining” and how it works.
Actually, the fact that the Bitcoin inflation will reach 0% makes Bitcoin the most scarce asset on the planet. There is nothing else in the world that will have such an absolute limited supply.
No one knows why Satoshi Nakamoto chose the 21 million Bitcoins limit or why the inflation is cut in half every four years.
Logically, it could as well have been 134 million in total Bitcoins and a halving every 10 years.
Nevertheless, the Bitcoin inflation keeps getting cut in half every four years and this will continue approximately until the year 2144.
Bitcoin halving occurs once every four years. This is when the future supply of Bitcoin gets cut in half.
