Bitcoin Bulls Count on 2020 Halving to Give BTC Price Massive Push: Bloomberg

Bitcoin halving takes place every few years to prevent Bitcoin value from inflation, analysts and bulls point out that after each of those events Bitcoin price experienced a substantial rally

Halving or halvening happens every few years as soon as new 210,000 blocks are mined. When it takes place, the rewards of miners are cut down in half. As per the recent Bloomberg article, crypto bulls are already rubbing their hands in anticipation.

Bitcoin miners reward will diminish

The reason is that after the previous two halvings Bitcoin quotes showed an extensive surge, bringing traders more than healthy gains.

What happens at a halving is that the amount of coins that miners get for using their computation power to verify transactions gets cut by half.

The first halving occurred in 2012, another one was in 2016. After the first one Bitcoin price hit $1,000. The 2016 halving made Bitcoin price surge to an ATH of over $19,000.

Another mining award cut is expected in May 2020 and then an award for each block will total 6.25 BTC, instead of 12.5 BTC now.

Crypto community expects a major bull run

A recent Twitter poll shows that among 2,500 voters, 61% expect BTC price to demonstrate a major rally. Since the award will be cut down by half, fewer Bitcoins will be released in circulation, which will make the coin scarcer than it is now, thus the price should go up.

As said above, after the first halving in autumn 2012 Bitcoin price spiked from $10 to $1,000 within a year. The next halving saw Bitcoin surge to almost $20,000 before it collapsed in 2018.

Crypto experts agree to differ

Major Bitcoin bulls, writes Bloomberg, such as Anthony Pomp from Morgan Creek Digital, have been drawing attention to the 2020 halvening, emphasizing its importance.

Some crypto experts remain skeptical, though. Eric Turner, the head of research at Messary Inc., believes that the connection between Bitcoin halvings and Bitcoin price surges is very thin.

Gil Luria from DA DA Davidson & Co thinks likewise:

There are so many factors that impact the price of Bitcoin, but this should not be one of them.
