Bitcoin rate and halving

Bitcoin's halving will take place on the cryptocurrency network tomorrow. In practice, it means halving the rewards paid to miners. This time, this means the reward drops from 6.25 BTC to 3,125 BTC.

The above must actually have an impact on the BTC rate. A smaller supply of new coins combined with increased demand must lead to a supply shock and a spike in the price.

What does the situation look like on the chart? Bitcoin cost $42,200 at the beginning of the year. It rose 74% to reach a new ATH of $73,600 on May 13. But then it was time for correction. At the time of writing, 1 BTC is worth USD 61,350, which translates into a 4% drop over the day and a 13% drop over 7 days.

Market sentiment remains good. BTC's Fear and Greed Index is 57, which means the market is greedy.

Investors expect the halving to do what it has always done, which is to increase the valuation of BTC. This is probably why the mood is good despite the price drops. You can read more about this in the article in which we took a closer look at the phenomenon of prize division.
