Bitcoin Halving: What it Means for Price
The bitcoin blockchain adds its 840,000th block every four years, resulting in a halving of the inflation rate of the bitcoin supply. This event is called the “halving” and when it occurs, the reward rate for miners is reduced from 6.25 BTC to 3.125 BTC. Historically speaking, this has resulted in an impressive run up in the bitcoin price prior to each halving event – leading many experts to forecast that another rally could occur after next year’s 2024 halving as well.
ChatGPT Predicts Significant Price Increase Post-Halving
ChatGPT, a leading artificial intelligent chatbot recently commented on where it believes the bitcoin price could go after 2021’s halving event. According to ChatGPT, “If this pattern holds true after next year’s halving as well, it is reasonable to forecast a significant increase in the Bitcoin price post-2024 halving; potentially even doubling or tripling the pre-halving price… This could place Bitcoin in the range of $60,000 to $90,000”.
Other Factors That Could Influence Price
While ChatGPT predicts that bitcoin prices could see substantial gains following 2021’s halving event; it did warn that other factors like regulatory changes and macroeconomic trends could also have an influence on how much prices rise (or fall).
Historical Trends Show Potential Bull Run After Halvings
The last two times that bitcoin underwent a “halvening” were back in 2016 and 2020 – both times saw all time highs reached in terms of market capitalization soon afterwards. Matrixport and Standard Chartered have predicted that prices could exceed $100k next year after this upcoming 2021 halvening – while Morgan Creek Capital projected prices above $300k by 2028’s halvening.
Although there are no guarantees with cryptocurrency investments; past trends suggest that we can expect significant increases in market capitalization following each upcoming bitcoin “halvening” events – including 2021’s which is currently scheduled for April 21st 2022
