About the event “Bitcoin Halving – View from the crypto Valley

The imminent announcement of the halving of the charge for the miners in the Bitcoin network is a privileged moment to take a closer look at a number of issues:

  • What are the short and medium-term effects on the price level to be expected?
  • How have the miners prepared for this event, and does this profitability shock pose a unique threat to the security level of the network?
  • The “halving” events illustrate the predictability of monetary issuance in crypto-currencies as opposed to the arbitrary monetary policy of central banks. We are witnessing the moment when a huge economic crisis triggered by a pandemic threatens to overwhelm already over-indebted states. In the coming turbulence, the value concept of unstoppable pure crypto-currencies, whose maximum money supply is fixed in the code, will probably meet with wider acceptance in many countries. Has the historic time come for Bitcoin & Co. to earn their place under the sun?

The introduction will be followed by a discussion
