Something the entire world, not just Bitcoiners or Bitcoin Miners need to understand is the halving or Halfinning. New bitcoin 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” or better than those two the “halfinning”


In 2012, the number 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.


Next halfinning is estimated to occur April 17, 2024, the reward will drop from 6.25 BTC per block to 3.125 BTC.
