What is Halving?

Halving is an event in which the block rewards of miners are cut in half. This means that miners will receive 50% less crypto for every block they mine.

Why Halving is Important

Imagine you’re a kid selling lemonade on a hot summer day. You’re doing great, business is booming, and you’re raking in the coins. But then, one day, your parents decide to cut your commission in half. They say it’s because they want to keep the lemonade supply from running out too quickly.That’s kind of like what happens in the world of Bitcoin with halving. Halving is when the reward for mining Bitcoin is cut in half. This happens every four years or so, and it’s designed to keep the supply of Bitcoin from growing too fast.Think of it like this: imagine there are only a certain number of cookies in a cookie jar. Every time you mine a Bitcoin, you’re taking one of those cookies out of the jar. If you kept taking cookies out at the same rate, the jar would eventually be empty.Halving is like slowing down the rate at which you take cookies out of the jar. This helps to keep the jar from running out too quickly and ensures that there will be enough cookies for everyone for many years to come.So, next time you hear about Bitcoin halving, just remember that it’s all about keeping those cookies in the jar.

This way the supply gets reduced and demand is increasing this causing a price increase
