2024 Halving Date ETA:
What is the Bitcoin Halving (Halvening)?
New bitcoins are issued by the Bitcoin network every 10 minutes. For the first four years of Bitcoin’s existence, the amount of new bitcoins issued every 10 minutes was 50. Every four years, this number is cut in half. The day the amount halves is called a «halving» or «halvening».
In 2012, the amount of new bitcoins issued every 10 minutes dropped from 50 bitcoins to 25. In 2016, it dropped from 25 to 12.5. In the most recent May 11, 2020 halving, the reward dropped from 12.5 to 6.25 BTC per block.
In the 2024 halving, the reward will drop from 6.25 BTC per block to 3.125 BTC.
What is the Significance of the Bitcoin Block Halving?
The halving decreases the amount of new bitcoins generated per block. This means the supply of new bitcoins is lower, making buying more expensive.
In normal markets, lower supply with steady demand usually leads to higher prices. Since the halving reduces the supply of new bitcoins, and demand usually remains steady, the halving has usually preceded some of Bitcoin’s largest runs.

What Happens to Miners During Halvings?

Is There an Ethereum Block Reward Halving Countdown?
Ethereum’s block reward does not halve like Bitcoin’s, so there is no countdown.
What is the ?
The Bitcoin clock has been around since 2011. In 2018, the owner let the domain expire. We revamped the site and restored it to its original vision.
Is the Halving Necessary?
The halving is necessary. This is how Bitcoin controls its supply. Once the block subsidy expires, transaction fees will pay miners for securing the network.
Why Our Estimates Are the Most Accurate
Most of the other halving date estimators use 10 minute blocks to calculate the estimated halving date.
Blocks, however, have been mined at less than 10 minute intervals for almost all of Bitcoin’s history.
Our calculator uses data from BTC.com to get the average block time for the past two months. It then uses this block time (currently 10.3125 minutes between blocks as of March 25, 2020) to estimate the halving date.
While most of the other sites estimate the halving for late-May, the more likely outcome is an early-May reward halving.
What is the Current Bitcoin Block Reward?
Currently, there are 6.25 new bitcoins issued per block.
Bitcoin Clock — a project by Buy Bitcoin Worldwide.
The first-ever Bitcoin halving took place on Nov. 28, 2012 — slashing rewards to just 25 BTC. On this date, a single BTC would set you back about $12. But just look at where it was a year later. Dusting off the CMC archives, we can see that the price of Bitcoin stood at $1, 031.95 on that date in 2013. That’s an annual rise of 8, 500%, the types of returns that would cause most Wall Street investors to faint.

Ethereum идет на Берлин, ETH — на $2 500 и выше
§ Разработчиков они тоже демотивируют. Стартапы ищут альтернативы для Ethereum, опасаясь, что пользователи не захотят платить высокие комиссии. Чтобы удержаться в статусе короля альткойнов, эфиру нужно решить проблему высоких комиссий.
Криптосообщество с нетерпением ждет обновления, которое решит эти проблемы, однако аналитики задаются вопросом, сможет ли Берлин эффективно устранить узкие места перед переходом на ETh2>
