You see, this digital currency has a unique monetary policy. Bitcoins are created roughly every 10 minutes, but there can only ever be 21 million of them. The rate at which bitcoins are created will drop by half every four years until all 21 million bitcoins are in circulation.
Last time the halving event happened was in November 2012, when the price of a bitcoin was around $12.00.
Since then, the bitcoin price skyrocketed. At $473.80 apiece, the price of a bitcoin has increased by 3,950%!
The next halving event is expected to happen in less than two months. This could spark a new rally in bitcoin prices.
