In April 2023, several cryptocurrency analysts suggested that Bitcoin could surpass $50,000 in 2024, with one analyst predicting a price of $65,623 around April this year. The optimistic outlook is based, in part, on the concept of “halving,” a process occurring approximately every four years that results in Bitcoin’s block reward—the reward one wins for adding a new block to the blockchain—shrinking by 50%. This topic has garnered currency ahead of the Bitcoin halving cycle expected in April 2024 and its projected bullish run this year. Why is Bitcoin traditionally perceived to hit a high shortly after halvings, and why is it expected to happen again? What does it mean for the cryptocurrency ecosystem? Answering these questions was Edul Patel, Co-founder and the CEO of Mudrex, in a virtual conversation moderated by Miloni Bhatt, Editor – Digital Broadcast, The conversation was part of a webinar titled ‘Decoding Bitcoin’s Halving: Can It Surge 10x?
