Bitcoin Halving 2024: Impact, Predictions, and Mining Developments

Bitcoin (BTC) has just completed its fourth halving event, reducing mining rewards from 6.25 BTC to 3.125 BTC per block. This milestone, happening roughly every four years, is a big deal for the Bitcoin community.

It helps control the supply of Bitcoin and ensures its scarcity. People are really curious about how this halving will affect Bitcoin’s price, with some estimates going as high as $250,000.

As of now, BTC is priced at $65,926, and the price hasn’t moved much since the halving. This is the fourth time this has happened, with previous halvings in 2012, 2016, and 2020. Each time, it reduces the rewards for mining, gradually slowing down the creation of new Bitcoin. This process will keep going until around 2140 when all Bitcoin is expected to be mined.

Big players in Bitcoin mining have been getting ready for this event. Marathon Digital, for instance, bought a $87.3 million Bitcoin mining facility in Texas with a capacity of 200 megawatts. And Riot Platforms, another mining firm, expanded its hash rate significantly by purchasing 66,560 mining rigs.

On the transaction side, fees on the Bitcoin network shot up due to excitement over the Runes Protocol, a new way to create tokens on Bitcoin. Users are paying hefty fees to include rare satoshis in the halving block. A staggering 37.7 BTC, worth over $2.4 million, was spent on fees to secure space on this historic block.
