The Bitcoin halving is almost upon us, and many people believe the Bitcoin price will be affected by this milestone. A lot of people seem to think the price will go down, and some of them even expected it to go down before the halving itself. But that does not seem to be the case, despite a small dip on the charts after a strong climb.
Influencing the Bitcoin price on the free market is not as straightforward as most people want to believe. Granted, there is the age-old game of bulls and bears taking place every day, but it becomes harder to cause significant price movements. Depending on whom one poses the question to, the upcoming Bitcoin halving may push the price up or down.
Price Stabilisation Despite Looming Bitcoin Halving
There are certain things that will change when the Bitcoin halving takes place. The amount of coins generated by miners every block will drop from 25 to 12.5. As a side effect, mining may become very unprofitable for the majority of miners, unless there is a significant Bitcoin price spike.
