With the upcoming Bitcoin halving, a lot of people are wondering if they need to undertake concrete action to ensure their software is up-to-date. As long as one is running the latest version of Bitcoin Core – or a mobile client – there is nothing to worry about. While this change does take place on the source code side of things, there is still plenty of time to update clients if needed.
No Action Required On Behalf of The Users
There is a lot of excitement regarding the upcoming Bitcoin halving, as it will have a significant effect on the future of this popular cryptocurrency. Satoshi Nakamoto, who originally created Bitcoin, built in specific points in time during which the Bitcoin block reward would be cut in half.
Ever since that time, the Bitcoin Core developers have been working on the source code of this cryptocurrency to ensure future halvings would go smoothly. In fact, there is no need to do anything as a Bitcoin user or miner, other than making use the latest version of the client has been installed.
