The second supposed Bitcoin “block halving” is quick approaching. This week, as three-quarters of all bitcoins have been mined, a retard funding will diminution from 25 bitcoins per retard to 12.5. A pivotal eventuality in Bitcoin’s history, energetically expected by some – and maybe rather feared by others.
More than anyone else, Bitcoin miners mount to be influenced by a event: producing blocks is their business and a retard prerogative presents a vital cube of their revenue. Having oral to BTCC COO, Samson Mow, and BitFury CEO, Valery Vavilov, last week, Bitcoin Magazine reached out to other miners to see how they are scheming for a arriving halving.
Much like BTCC’s Mow and BitFury’s Vavilov, all miners Bitcoin Magazine spoke with are coming a arriving halving with a ubiquitous clarity of optimism. While a halving of a funding cuts directly into their income stream, miners commend this is pivotal to Bitcoin’s value proposition.
